Overview

As of May 31, 2018, our show runs THURSDAY nights. We start at 8:15pm! Comedy Abroad is Montreal's LONGEST weekly English stand-up comedy show (est. 2012!) and is specifically for visitors to Montreal. The show's in a bar beneath a hostel, so there's no shortage of accents to be heard in the crowd, and the beer is cheap (swish!). Our comics are a mix of pros and up-and-comers, from both Montreal and everywhere else. Some have performed at Just For Laughs, Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne International, Winnipeg Comedy Festival & hae been on network television in Canada, USA, and Australia. There's no cover charge! We're a "pay-by-donation" show, so no fee to enter. Come in, grab a seat, enjoy the show. Towards the end of the show, we'll ask you for a donation (suggested is $8-10 but pay-what-you-feel). Did we mention the beer is cheap? We just did! Thursday Nights, 8:15pm, Lineups on our FB page. We're near Metro Berri UQAM. Bring senses of humour!

Address correction, actually 1245 rue Saint-André. Very nice environment and crowd. Good time for a younger adult scene!

Personal taste in comedy is totally subjective and so this review isn't based on the performers themselves, but rather, the concept and venue. The venue is very cool; located in the basement of the M Hostel with an awesome vibe. The staff were welcoming and...More

The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd

open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished
buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special
homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and
