A stalwart of modern British comedy, Noel Fielding, treats the Canadian audience to his frenetic and entertaining style of humour. Best known for his lead role in TV series The Mighty Boosh, which he co-wrote with Julian Barratt, Fielding has recently been promoted to permanent team captain on rollicking music quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks. Fielding’s distinctive look and highly physical comedy is bound to keep the crowd engaged and enthralled.
Together, Kiwis Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement make up musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords. As well as having the third season of a highly successful HBO television show under their belts, the pair also bagged a Grammy award for Best Comedy Album in 2007. With their deadpan, self-deprecating humour and catchy lyrics, their famed live show is certain to have the Just for Laughs faithfuls rolling in the aisles.
Finally this week, Irish comedian Dylan Moran presents his sardonic brand of humour to Montreal. Best known for his star comic turn as Bernard Black in the BAFTA-winning television sitcom Black Books, with Bill Bailey and Tamsin Greig, Moran also co-wrote Shaun of the Dead and Run Fatboy Run with Simon Pegg. A regular on the stand-up circuit, he has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Hay Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
