WATCH: A Bunch of Comedians Talk About Toronto
Marc Maron, Kyle Kinane, Andy Kindler and more JFL42 acts talk up "the Savannah of the north"

What’s there to say about Toronto? We’ve got the best, biggest mayor going. We’ve got that “CN” tower. It’s a like a giant Febreze commercial — At least that’s what came to mind when Marc Maron, Kyle Kinane, Andy Kindler and a handful of other comics we’re asked to describe the city that is to host them at JFL42. The 10-day comedy festival starts tomorrow with dozens of shows at various venues across the city, and features major headlining talent in Aziz Ansari, Sarah Silverman and Family Guy Live. We called the inaugural fest last year one of the funniest things to happen in the city in 2012, and with killer acts like Chris Locke, Hannibal Buress, John Mulaney, and Maria Bamford, 2013 promises to be even better.
