This year’s annual JFL42 has already started! Opening weekend kicks off of this top notch stand-up comedy fest has some big names such as Bill Burr, Gilbert Gottfried and so much more. Check out our top picks!

There’s always a lot of amazing stand-up acts at JFL42 and this year is no different, some could say better. So we asked our hardcore stand-up comedy friend who attends all the shows, plans and schedules at least 3 shows a night during JFL42 (in fact he went to 4 shows on opening night last night) and without hesitation he quickly came up with this top must-see list.

  • Bill Burr
  • Hannibal Burress
  • Gilbert Gottfried
  • Moshe Kasher
  • TJ Miller
  • John Hodgman
  • Al Madrigal
  • Kate Berlant
  • Fortune Feimster
  • Rhys Darby
  • Patton Oswalt

Some would ask why we haven’t included YouTube sensation Miranda Sings but our stand-up comedy critic says she’s not for everyone (such as himself). Let us know who else you’re excited to see!

Either way, to each his own and JFL42 is definitely a great time with side-splitting stand-up comedy. For more info including schedules, tickets and more visit
