Just for Laughs, a comedy festival, has announced its line-up for the segment Zoofest Comedy. It will feature 11 shows running from July 12 to 18th.
Those who attend to the Zoofest Comedy should expect to see:
- Patrice Oneal who will present his new show Mr. P where he finally admits that he may have been wrong about "some shit in life" - like white people and women are not all bad.

- Donald Glover, one of the stars of NBC's Community, will present his new show Gross.
- Phil Nichol will take on the stage Katacombes to present A Deadpan Poet Sings Quiet Songs Quietly, his follow-up to Nearly Gay and The Naked Racist.
- Bo Burnham, a YouTube star, will be present at the Theatre Ste-Catherine will present Words, Words, Words, where he’ll perform songs, stand-up, haikus, and a bunch of other stuff.
- Bill Burr, with his show You People Are All The Same, talks about how hard it is to not become "a complete piece of shit".
- Jaime Kilstein will present his critically-acclaimed show No War, No God, No Nickelback.
- Theatre Ste-Catherine will be the home of UCB Presents, featuring the Upright Citizens Brigade, widely recognized for being the most relevant breeding ground of innovative, cutting-edge and high quality improv and sketch with stand-out performers such as Rob Riggle (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) and Paul F. Tompkins taking the stage with a young crop of UCB’s next comedy stars.
Zoofest Comedy UK Edition will be presented at Le Savoy (Metropolis) featuring Noel Fielding in his first solo stand-up show since the huge success of the double act he created with Julian Barratt The Mighty Boosh (BBC, Adult Swim). The 2009 Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Tim Key will present The Slutcracker and 2009 Edinburgh Award nominee Tom Wrigglesworth guarantees laughs with his tale of how a tiny gesture of kindness resulted in the triumph of Good over Evil in Tom Wrigglesworth’s Open Letter to Richard Branson, which is based on real life events that occurred during a train ride.
