Just For Laughs’ fans will have the opportunity to sit down with executive producers Jim Carrey and Michael Aguilar and cast members Ari Graynor, Al Madrigal, Erik Griffin, Andrew Santino, RJ Cyler and Clark Duke for a wide-ranging conversation about everything that went into making I’m Dying Up Here, the new highly anticipated one-hour SHOWTIME drama series.

Premiering Sunday, June 4th at 10pm on SHOWTIME, the show explores L.A.’s famed ‘70s stand-up comedy scene, delving into the inspired, damaged and complicated psyches of those who stand alone in front of an audience “dying” for fame, fortune and, with any luck, a shot on Johnny Carson. This fictional group of competitive but close-knit comedians is mentored by “Goldie,” a brassy comedy club owner who rules over her business with an iron fist, but nurtures her comedians with tough love. For Goldie and her crew, there’s truly no such thing as an easy laugh.

Kaitlin Olson along with creators Dave and John Chernin will dish on the best moments from the first season of Fox’s The Mick, and let viewers in on what Mickey and the gang are up to in Season 2 on Saturday, July 29th at 1:30pm in the Grand Salon Opera, Level 4, Hyatt Regency Montreal.

Set to launch this summer, Kevin Hart’s new digital comedy network Laugh Out Loud, returns to Montreal for a second straight year with LOL Live!, a four-night multi-comic event showcasing some of the best comedians appearing at the Just For Laughs Festival. Catch all eight performances from July 26-29, 7pm and 10pm at Theatre Berri.

Rounding out the lineup of stellar hosts, stand-up comedian, award-winning writer and actor, Wyatt Cenac will host two shows of All Access Live.
