For The First Time, JFL Has Put New Faces On YouTube

Well, isn’t this special?!

Perhaps because I was the only person to actually review 2021’s New Faces of Comedy (check out my Substack, it’s called Piffany!), the folks at Just For Laughs decided last night to start posting the showcase sets individually to YouTube. This is unprecedented. Usually you had to be there to know what happened.

Now you can see and judge for yourselves.

Or read what I wrote about New Faces, then watch this.

OK, so in order of appearance, we had….
