Just For Laughs Gags

Just For Laughs Gags

‘Just For Laughs’ is one of the world’s biggest and most respected comedy festivals. Held in Montreal every year since 1983, it attracts the biggest and brightest names from the world of stand-up comedy. ‘Just For Laughs Gags’ is a TV show that airs on Canadian TV under the JFL banner – so you know it’s funny…

Based on the American TV behemoth Candid Camera, it’s a hidden camera show with a difference – it’s dialogue free. Which is handy for those of us whose French isn’t that good! It’s just music, sound effects and laughter. There have been over 3,000 shows made so far, so there’s a huge back catalog of hilarious practical jokes to enjoy from these well-school Quebec-based pranksters. Their formula has proved so successful, it’s been exported to fifteen countries so far.

Sometimes cheeky, always hilarious – let’s check out their most watched video to date (it’s had an amazing 77m views!):
