About us

OUR STORY:
NON-STOP LAUGHTER.

We were born to make you laugh. From our humble beginnings in 1983 at the Saint-Denis Theatre in Montreal to laughing our way to become the largest global player in the humour industry, we’ve made funny our business. Each year we make millions of people laugh with festivals at home, in Montreal and abroad. We’re home to some serious talent. We’ve hosted comedy’s greatest and watched up-and-comers skyrocket right before our laugh-so-hard-we’re crying eyes. We’ve staged our own comedy, musical and touring shows. We’ve broadcasted digital and television content. We know how to throw a party. And we’re not even close to leaving the spotlight.

OUR VISION:
LAUGHTER IS
OUR LANGUAGE.

Leverage the strength of our comedy content to become a creative multiplatform powerhouse internationally recognized by fans, talent and partners.

OUR EXPERTISE:
WE WERE BORN
TO LAUGH.

We don’t just make people laugh. We make laughter. It’s our craft and our brand. Everything we say and do pushes the boundaries of laughter and comedy. Laughter is both our natural resource and the finished product. We want to make the world a better place. Not only do we do this with our festivals and touring shows, but also with fan conferences such as ComedyCON, industry conferences such as ComedyPRO, as well as hit shows including Gags, Roast Battle and Humour Resources for broadcast, OTT and digital channels around the world. We also bring laughter with our audio label, Just For Laughs Originals and our Just For Laughs Canada Sirius XM satellite radio channels!

CAREERS:
LAUGHTER IS
SERIOUS BUSINESS.

Laughter is a serious business, come be part of it! Through teamwork, passion and performance, help us create funny moments.
