Di Paolo gets 'Nasty' for JFL


TORONTO -- Montreal's Just For Laughs comedy festival on Friday said veteran stand-up comic Nick Di Paolo will host the "The Nasty Show" this year, while Australian comic Jim Jeffries will return to Montreal with his solo "The Second Coming" show.

The latest announcements from JFL comes before the comedy festival fills out its remaining lineup on Tuesday.

Di Paolo, a Comedy Central fixture, will host JFL's annual showcase of raunchy comedy, this year to be headlined by Louis CK ("Lucky Louie"), Dave Attell ("Insomniac with Dave Attell"), Robert Kelly ("Tourgasm") and Jim Jeffries, who last appeared in Montreal in 2005.

Jeffries recently made headlines when he was attacked on stage by an irate audience member while performing at the Manchester Comedy Store.
