Airdate: Just for Laughs: Aussies in Montreal

By David Knox on September 9, 2013 / Filed Under Programming 2

Adam HillsSeven will screen the comedy special Just For Laughs: Aussies in Montreal, hosted by Adam Hills, on Wednesday September 18 at 8.30pm.

The special showcases Australian acts at the Montreal Comedy Festival over the past decade including Dame Edna Everage, Dave Hughes, Rove McManus, Judith Lucy, Jimeoin, Tim Minchin, Will Anderson, Tripod, Tom Gleeson, Fiona O’Loughlin, Carl Barron, Axis of Awesome, Dave Thornton, Sammy J & Randy, and Hills.

“Be upstanding Australia. This is comedy royalty and it makes you proud to be an Aussie!,” says Hills.

“Over the last decade I have been lucky enough to become a regular at the Just For Laughs Festival.

“It’s been a privilege to watch so many Aussie acts kick-arse on a world stage…I am living proof that a one legged man can take part in an arse-kicking competition!”

Another special with Wil Anderson is yet to be scheduled.

Wednesday September 18 at 8.30pm on Seven.

    I watched this tonight, some were funny. Others were plain & boring, including this 1 woman in the blue dress, who I thought made a comment which was not true and very rude!! Towards her own fellow Australians.
    She went on to say, ” Australians are known to be racist, but only the white ones” I couldn’t believe what I heard, she made herself look more stupid than she is. She was clearly saying she thinks the Black Australians are racist. She has prooven to everybody that she is very racist, just to be able to say that!! Some people who call themselves comedians are not, these people are trying so hard that they get desperate & only come out with racist, arrogant insults! You were not funny at all!

    What’s Just for Laughs doing on Seven? Shouldn’t it be on TEN?
