Another day, another big Just for Laughs announcement. Today, we learned that Kevin Hart will be hosting twelve comedy shocases over six nights from July 26-31 at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal.
The twelve shows will be filmed for Kevin’s new online service, Laugh Out Loud Network. Want to talk about a way to get the new network kickstarted? This is one heckuva way to put your service out there. Shows will take place at 7pm and 10pm during the six day run.
The other big announcement out of the festival today (yes, there’s more than just twelve Kevin Hart shows) were the winners of the Just for Laughs awards. They are:
- Comedy Person of the Year – Aziz Ansari
- Stand-Up Comedian of the Year – Sebastian Maniscalco
- Breakout Comedy star of the Year – Maria Bamford
- Comedy Writers of the Year – Mike Judge and Alec Berg
It’s tough to argue with any of the winners. They will be celebrated on Friday, July 29 at 4:30pm. The show will be hosted by JB Smoove so we’re pretty sure that it’ll be a hilarious time.
