Welcome in the New Year with the 8th Annual Just for Laughs: Bermuda comedy festival.

The fun is set to run from January 8th to January 11th. This is when the festival will feature some of the leading comedians from around the world. 2014 will mark the eighth year in a row Bermuda holds this famous comedy event. This follows in the tradition of the illustrious Just for Laughs festival in Montreal, Canada. The 8th Annual Just For Laughs: Bermuda has been billed as having the “gold standard of comedy”. The festival is hosted by award winning American comedian Alonzo Bodden.

Just For Laughs will see among the brightest names on the international comedy scene appearing at two prominent local venues. These are the Earl Cameron Theatre, City Hall in Hamilton and the Fairmont Southampton’s Mid-Ocean Amphitheatre. The former will be the site of the festival’s opening salvo. The event will kick off on Wednesday January 8th with the Double Bill evening.

This will be the first of individual themed nights over different evenings. The next night sees a Cabaret style evening at the Mid-Ocean Amphitheatre at the Fairmont Southampton resort. The bill will include the return of the stars of the Double Bill evening, Jonathan Young from Bermuda, Robert Kelly from the USA and your host Alonzo Bodden. They will be joined by fellow American comedian Wil Sylvince and Steve Patterson from Canada. The festival will then conclude with thirties nights over two evenings. There will be one show on Friday the 10th and two on Saturday the 11th of January.

The 8th Annual Just for Laughs comedy festival looks set to kick off 2014 with a blast and that’s no joke.
