If you're a fan of laughing, and laughing hard, then you're in luck if you're in Toronto from September 19 - 28, 2013.
The second annual JFL42 is invading Toronto again this fall with an all-star line-up including headlining performances by the entire cast of "Family Guy" (joined by a 40-piece orchestra), Aziz Ansari and Sarah Silverman. Additional JFL42 shows will take place at various venues across the city, including performances by well-known comedians Janeane Garofalo ("SNL," "Romi And Michele's High School Reunion") and Bill Burr ("Chappelle's Show").
JFL42 is a pass-based interactive comedy festival created by Just For Laughs. Passholders are given the opportunity to see all 42 Festival acts over 10 days, along with the freedom to create their own schedule and experience. In turn, passholders create the demand for each of the festival acts, resulting in added shows or bigger venues, all processed through an online reservation system and festival app.
Passes range in price from $99 - $299 (in Canadian dollars). Exact ticket pricing is yet to be announced, but you can visit the JFL42 website for the most up-to-date information.
Additional performers are expected to be announced as JFL42 draws closer. See some of the expected attending talent below.
