Thankfully there are plenty of TV shows, movies, and YouTube videos that keep us in stitches year round. But nothing beats live comedy from the greats themselves. Live comedy is the best because it perfectly combines excitement, laughter, and fear – fear of being singled out in the crowd – together to create an amazing evening. This Fall marks the return of Toronto’s JFL42 Comedy Festival. Here’s everything you need to know.
