Q: When is the 2004 Just for Laughs festival in Montreal, and how can I get tickets to the show?

A: The 20th anniversary of the Just For Laughs Festival is scheduled to raise its curtains on July 15-25, 2004. This is also the world's largest and most renowned comedy festival, which has been known to attract over 2,000 performances for the entire family, including 1,300 free, outdoor shows in Montréal's popular Latin Quarter. Last year the crowds were entertained by the quick witted shenanigans of Kelly Ripa from Live with Regis and Kelly fame and the always zany Carla Collins among many other artists. At press time, the festival did not have any details posted on the hilarious comedy extravaganza. But, for updates on events and acts, you might wish to check back regularly at, the Just For Laugh's official web site.
