Ever since 1983 when the Just For Laughs festival began in Montreal, it has launched the careers of many famous comics who are still making us giggle today. After hosting events in Chicago, Toronto and Sydney, the festival is coming to London and will stay for a fortnight of fun. There will be several venues around the capital including Russell Square, Logan Hall and the Camden Centre. If the likes of Rowan Atkinson, Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler have all stunned the crowds with their stand-up, then this year’s cluster of comics should be no different. There will be plenty of free acts to warm you up for the main events. From street performers and magicians to your favourite stand-up stars, there’ll be no lack of laughs. With names like Jim Jefferies, Colin Mochrie and Keith Farnan joining the show, you’ll be chuckling all the way home.
