Neal Brennan Headlines The 5th Annual JFL42 Comedy Festival
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 fifth year running, the rib-tickling festivities have grown by 15 percent since 2015, with a grand total of over 73,000 attendees now flocking to the city's top venues for a whirlwind of wry observations, side-splitting sketches and hilarious stand-up routines.
Three-time Emmy nominated writer, producer, director and stand up Neal Brennan first showed the comedy world he was a force to be reckoned with when he co-created and co-wrote the Chappelle Show with Dave Chapelle in 2003, and it became the most popular show on Comedy Central. When the show came to an abrupt end in 2006, Brennan took a step into the limelight with '3 Mics', a 2017 Netflix special which blended wicked one liners and soul-baring confessions into a multi-tasking spectacular that solidified Brennan's status as a live performer with considerable clout.
