Besides running the biggest comedy festival in the world every July in Montreal -- not to mention off-shoots in Chicago, Toronto, and now Vancouver -- Just for Laughs also does a great job producing theatre shows across Canada.
Kurt Metzger's (@kurtmetzger on Twitter) hilarious new stand-up special, White Precious is a refreshingly dark and misanthropic way to spend an hour. Fans already familiar with his popular podcast, Race Wars will not be surprised by the candidly abrasive tone.
FX's Louie is the best possible example of why labels like comedy and drama are utterly useless. It differs in tone, feeling and look from every other modern 30 minute sitcom. This show has countless strong points, both dramatically and comedic but, Louie defies pointless categorization.
As the second week of Montreal's Just for Laughs Festival rolls on, there are still a host of amazing shows on the horizon. As we've said before, this festival continues to bring in some of the best comics in the world, and we've got three more that you definitely don't want to miss should you be in Montreal for the festival this week.
