TORONTO – Canada's Just for Laughs is making the leap to radio.
SiriusXM Radio has pacted with the Montreal comedy festival group to launch a 24/7 channel offering over 30 years of stand-up comedy from the Just for Laughs vault.
The digital radio channel will feature comedy routines from veteran stand-ups like Greg Giraldo, Dave Chappelle, Dane Cook, Mitch Hedberg, Aziz Ansari and Russell Peters, who have performed at the must-see Montreal festival for Hollywood agents and talent scouts.
"The Just for Laughs festival's international reach and rich archive of stand-up material is a valuable addition to our comedy offering," said Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer at SiriusXM, in a statement Wednesday.
The channel will debut Thursday on channel 403 on SiriusXM radio, and be available via the Sirius radio app on smartphones or online at SiriusXM.com.
