Just For Laughs Chooses Its 2014 New Faces

just for laughs logoEvery year, Montreal's Just For Laughs comedy festival chooses a bunch of up-and-coming comedians to highlight in their "New Faces" showcase, and this year's list has been released. Last year's list featured a bunch of comedians who enjoyed a breakthrough year including SNL's John Milhiser and Brooks Wheelan, standups Mark Normand and Aparna Nancherla, Late Night's Conner O'Malley, and more. Just For Laughs splits their choices up by categories New Faces (non-Canadian standups with managers), New Faces: Characters (sketch performers), Homegrown Talent (Canadian comedians), and New Faces: Unrepped (comedians without managers).
