Just For Laughs Festival (JFL42)

Published: 25 Aug, 2013

Just For Laughs returns to Toronto this year with same format as last year.

The Festival runs from September 19-28, 2013 and held at various venues throughout the city. Cost of the passes range from $99 69-299 depending on how many shows you would like to see. It’s still has it’s interactive format. Interactive being the key word!

The 42 ‘things’ will feature comedy, music, art, technology, activism to mention a few. You buy a pass – (from $99) – on sale NOW via their Website.

This ‘interactive’ pass (which will be your phone!) will give you the rights to connect, reserve and check-in. You then use your phone to check-in to the show, access your itinerary and receive information about the festival. They state on the website – “If you want to cheat the system and get unlimited credits (and go to an unlimited amount of shows), make sure you check in to the show one hour before to one hour after showtime, You’ll get your credit back.”

A ‘smartphone‘ is the better way to go in order to really get the full experience of this festival, so it may or may not be for everyone. Also, they encourage Facebook interaction, so again, if you haven’t an account with Facebook, you may miss out!
