The "Just for Laughs" comedy festival will be back this summer in Chicago. Among the already confirmed performers are Ellen DeGeneres, Cedric the Entertainer, Denis Leary, Russell Peters, Greg Giraldo, Jim Norton, Aziz Ansari and Bob Odenkirk. Leary is enough to make us want to attend, just sayin'.
The TBS Presents a "Very Funny" Festival: Just For Laughs event will take place at key Chicago venues June 15-19, with three specials planned, including Ellen's Somewhat Special, which is her fourth variety show for the network; Cedric the Entertainer's Urban Circus, which is a working title. A third show will be announced later.
The Lucha Va Voom comedy/wrestling show with burlesque and variety acts from across the globe –did you just hear our eyebrows raise?- will also be featured at the event. Sounds like we’ll pee our pants from laughing so hard.
Is Ellen DeGeneres still funny?
