Music festivals aren’t the only events going virtual in the era of social distancing — from Monday, July 20 through Saturday, July 25, SiriusXM will be airing the Just For Laughs Virtual Comedy Festival. The special programming will air across numerous comedy channels during the same dates that the world-renowned annual festival was originally scheduled to take place in Montreal (as previously announced, the postponed dates for the in-person festival will now take place this fall).
Throughout each day, the excitement of attending the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival will be recreated virtually and delivered directly to subscribers in their cars, at home, on-the-go, or wherever they choose to listen with connected devices. Two one-hour specials will air every day on five SiriusXM comedy channels (scroll down to see the schedule), hosted with fresh commentary from stars including Howie Mandel, Kevin Hart, Ronny Chieng, Caroline Rhea, Jim Norton, Alonzo Bodden, and many more.

In addition, the best stand-up tracks from previous Just For Laughs shows throughout its 37 year history will highlight some of the most iconic comedy sets, including segment’s from Andy Kindler’s biting “State Of The Industry” speeches as part of ComedyPRO. Pandora will also launch a suite of Just For Laughs playlists representing the festival’s diverse and hilarious programming.
More special coverage includes SiriusXM’s Just For Laughs Canada airing a 24/7, curated themed series that will highlight the festival’s revered Homegrown, New Faces, LGBTQ Gala, All Female Gala shows, and more, using original recordings from the Canadian artists and record labels.
