      Sarah Silverman, Jonathan Van Ness, Patton Oswalt, Tim Dillion, and The Office insiders Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are among the hi-wattage talent who’ll be headed to Vancouver for the 2023 installment of Just for Laughs Vancouver.

      The seventh edition of the festival runs February 16-25, with shows, featuring both local and international comics, taking place at venues ranging from the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and Orpheum to the Vogue, Rio, and Biltmore. Heavy hitters will also include Margaret Cho, Chris Distefano, Sugar Sammy, and Bad Friends podcasters Bobby Lee and Andrew Santino.

      Need more names? Headed to Just for Laughs will be And That’s Why We Drink podcasters Em Schulz and Christine Schiefer, TikTok sensations Darcy Michael and Jeremy Baer, and always overcaffeinated Adult Swim star Joe Pera (who, if you’re lucky, will sign your new copy of his book A Bathroom Book for People Not Pooping or Peeing But Using the Bathroom as an Escape. Trust us—we can relate.)

      Somebody Feed Phil host Phil Rosenthal will discuss the art of eating everything and traveling everywhere, while former The Daily Show With Jon Stewart correspondent Bassem Youssef will hit town showing why he’s been dubbed, coincidentally enough, “Jon Stewart of the Arab World”.

      While the imports often get the attention, Just For Laughs will also showcase the best of British Columbia’s homegrown talent with its Best of the West showcase.

      For the full lineup (including who’s playing when and where—which is important because the last place you want to be is Maui, Paris, or, worst of all, Kitchen-Waterloo when Ari Shaffir is offending everyone but the ghost of Sam Kinison at the Vogue) go here.

      And once you’ve got your February all mapped out, keep in mind that single tickets and three-show+ passes for Just for Laughs in Vancouver will go on sale to the general public on Friday, (December 9) at 10 a.m. PST at JFLVancouver.com.
