Montreal Just for Laughs Festival - Mom Com

"Hey moms out there. Your let your kids live in you for 9 months rent-free. You pushed your kids out like a Pez dispenser into this world. You raised them and let them live at home until they were 35. You somehow put up with all of their complaining, BS, and are always there for them even when they're a schmuck. It’s time for the moms of the world to speak up, unite in laughter, and gab about everything MOM related!" - Just for Laughs

As we've mentioned over and over, Montreal is FULL of fabulous summer events, and the Just For Laughs Festival is one of them. The Festival that recently kicked off their street art performances with the Pinkarnaval Parade runs through the end of July and hosts tons of amazing comedians including Russell Peters, Craig Ferguson, Eddie Izzard and many more, all ready to make you fall on the floor laughing.

One noteworthy, upcoming show, perfect for all our Montreal Fashion Mom readers is Mom Com, and just as the name suggests, it is a comedy show especially for moms. Hosted by Montreal’s own Caroline Rhea, the Mom Com show features of a group of comedians including Bob Marley (no, not that one - obviously lol), Tammy Pescatelli, Leanne Morgan, Paula Bel and Fiona O'Loughlin, who will all share what is sure to be hilarious, honest stories and jokes about all things mom. These comedians will say what you've been thinking, but have been too afraid to actually express out loud. You know that saying, it’s funny cause its true? Well, we're thinking that will probably apply with this show.

I think it’s time to grab a few friends and have a moms night out to check out Mom Com and share a good laugh. It is showing in Théâtre Jean-Duceppe at Place des Arts on July 29th and 30th. There are also tons of other great shows to check out, and lots of free events, perfect for the whole family! Visit the Just For Laughs Festival website for scheduling and tickets at

After all, laughter is the best medicine!
