Just For Laughs presents

Mega Stars of Comedy Gala

Just For Laughs is proud to announce the Mega-Stars of Comedy Gala, a special Gala with NO host. No host? How can this be? Well, there are seven comics so good that they could all be headliners. So rather than have them fight over it, we’re going with no host! Come see seven world class headliners Lewis Black, Tommy Tiernan, Ron White, Loni Love, Shaun Majumder, Kathleen Madigan and more.
