Over the course of 10 entertainment-packed days, the JFL42 Comedy Festival takes over Toronto and gives audiences the chance to see a star-studded roster of heavyweight headliners as well as 42 up-and-coming comedy acts from across the nation (hence the '42' in its moniker). Back for its sixth year running, the rib-tickling festivities have grown by 15 percent since 2015, with a grand total of over 73,000 attendees flocking to the city's top venues for a whirlwind of wry observations, side-splitting sketches and hilarious stand-up routines.
John Mulaney first came to global attention as a writer for Saturday Night Live. After a sprawling list of awards and nominations for his work there, 2018 saw him win an Emmy Award for his Netflix-captured stand-up performance at Radio City, part of his universally acclaimed Kid Gorgeous tour. Due to outstanding demand he'll be performing a second co-headline show at JFL42 with a yet-to-be-revealed special guest.
