Ready to laugh, Victoria?

Just For Laughs is bringing its 19th Just For Laughs Comedy Tour to town this month, with a well-known comedian and TV personality set to host.

Just for Laughs Comedy Night in Canada will be at downtown’s Royal Theatre for two shows on Sunday, May 22nd at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., with Rick Mercer leading the line-up.

Best known for his work on CBC comedy shows, including This Hour Has 22 Minutes and Rick Mercer Report, Mercer is also a political satirist, author and proud Canadian, born in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Alongside Mercer, set to take the stage is the co-star of STARZ’s Ramy Dave Merheje, Just For Laughs Festival favourite Eman El-Husseini, and 2018 Juno award winner Ivan Decker.

Just For Laughs says it’s giving $1 per ticket sold to Movember—a platform that brings awareness to men’s health, including mental health, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
