Lena Dunham, Seth Meyers, Amy Schumer to Headline This Year's JFL42

The third annual JFL42 Festival in Toronto has officially been announced, with a star-studded lineup that features Girls creator Lena Dunham, Late Night’s Seth Meyers, Parks and Recreation‘s Nick Offerman, Amy Schumer, Joe Rogan, Wanda Sykes, and many more!

Presented in association with Air Canada, the festival will feature eight headlining performances at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts and over 100 additional shows at various venues across Toronto from September 18 – 27, 2014.

Created by Just For Laugh and coordinated by programming director Robbie Praw (read our interview with him here), JFL42 is an interactive, pass-based comedy festival which allows holders to see their chosen headliner, plus a plethora of other acts taking place along the ten-day fest.

It’s all processed through JFL42’s custom online reservation system and Festival App.

JFL42 serves as a celebration of the most hilarious, innovative and relevant comedy experiences in the world. Just For Laughs has also produced comedy shows in Sydney, Australia, and in Nantes, France.

The announcement comes on the heels of the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal revealing its headliners, which includes Seth Rogen and Andy Samberg.
