Montreal’s New Faces 2014: Just For Laughs

Here they are! Well, most of them anyhow.

The list the comedy world waits all year for is out — Montreal’s “New Faces” for Just For Laughs.

Last year, two “New Faces” made the leap from Montreal in July to Saturday Night Live in September (Brooks Wheelan and John Milhiser). In years and comedy booms past, the industry’s agents and managers rushed even crazier into the void to represent new talents and steer them toward five- or six-figure development deals.

Who will get the Montreal bump this year?
