Just For Laughs Festival Montréal: Women in Comedy

The Just For Laughs Festival brings some of the biggest names in comedy to the picturesque city of Montréal. From July 12th through the 31st, comedians from Jerry Seinfeld to Jim Carrey make appearances, hold panels, launch new shows and engage in chuckle-inducing merriment.

Another promising feature of the fest? A long lineup of women hitting the stage. We’ve rounded up some of favorite comediennes because yes, women are funny, especially on Instagram. Eh?
