Just for Laughs

Canadian comedy legend Scott Thompson returns to Just For Laughs in not one but two shows.

Scott Thompson

He will host the 18th edition of Homegrown Comics at 5e Salle in Place Des Arts on July 29 at 7 pm. He will also premiere his much-anticipated new solo show That Trigger’s Crazy at Mainline Theatre (3997 St-Laurent Blvd.) on July 29 and 30.

la liste de l'été 2016I recently saw Thompson’s really edgy and uber-queer new stand-up act at Montreal’s Comedy Nest nightclub and he slayed! The man is still dangerous: When he started talking about bathhouses and cancer, folks – even gay men in the audience – got real uncomfortable.  That Trigger’s Crazy promises to be just as daring and over-the-top.

The Just For Laughs Festival runs from July 13 to August 1, and OFF-JFL runs from July 21 to 30. Visit www.hahaha.com for tickets.
