What’s included in your pass:
NEW FACES SHOWCASES
Discover the stars of tomorrow!
Every year, Just For Laughs bestows one of the most prestigious honors you can get as an up-and-coming performer; a spot on their New Faces showcases.
This year’s New Faces series will feature four different showcases with 40 performers taped in front of a live audience in Montreal and Los Angeles. Each showcase will be simultaneously live streamed online and then made available via VOD for comedy connoisseurs’ international viewing pleasure. The showcases this year will include New Faces 1 & 2, New Faces Characters and New Faces Canada presented by SiriusXM Canada in collaboration with Tangerine Bank.
This year, we are offering pass holders the opportunity to win a ticket (maybe more, if you’re lucky) to watch our New Faces showcases LIVE in LA & Montréal! The only way to enter the lottery draw for live tickets is through a digital ComedyPRO pass purchase!
Stay tuned as we announce this year’s New Faces on Monday, July 26, 2021!
