CJLO @ JFL: Judah Friedlander: America… Still Number One

Judah Friedlander is taking Just For Laughs by storm with America… Still Number One! Friedlander challenges American exceptionalism and US domestic foreign policy while commenting on racism, sexism, gun control, climate change and health care in his unique solo show.


CJLO @ JFL: Kill Tony Podcast: Kill or be Killed

For some reason, they say don’t meet your heroes. Last night, one of my comedic heroes was in Montreal and I wanted to meet him. Tony Hinchcliffe will be the first one to tell you he’s one of the top young rising comedians in the world, and we have to believe him. Being the go-to roast writer, this unapologetic comedian has written on six of the last Comedy Central Roasts as well as writing and performing on All Def Snoop Dogg Smoke Out (Snoop Dogg’s roast). His comedy is like rapid-fire. It’s quick and painful… If you’re on the receiving end of it that is.


CJLO @ JFL: Matteo Lane presents: Streisand at the Bon Soir

Matteo Lane presents: Streisand at the Bon Soir is a comedy cabaret show you’ll never forget! Comedian and opera singer Matteo Lane and pianist Henry Koperski transformed Cafe Cleopatra into a swanky jazz club on July 23rd and 24th. Together, the two channeled their inner Barbra Streisand, playing some of her greatest hits as well as songs by other iconic women, like Liza Minnelli and Mariah Carey.


CJLO is going to Heavy Montreal!

We at CJLO are always stoked for Heavy Montreal to come around and rock out in a style befitting Montreal's connection to the loudest, heaviest acts, and this year is no different. To help you to decide what you need to see this year, some of our DJs have compiled a list of bands they're looking forward to seeing. Also, if you have some time in between bands, or if you are sitting at home during the weekend, why not tune into our live broadcast (which we'll be posting times for on our social media accounts) for live interviews with bands and music from this year’s groups and past.


CJLO @ JFL: Jimmy Carr: He'll Make You Cry

Although his last name is Carr, his comedy is more comparable to a monster truck. Jimmy Carr is one of Britain’s top comedic exports, and Montrealers found out why last night. The 45-year-old Londoner presented us with Jimmy Carr: The Best Of, Ultimate, Gold, Greatest Hits World Tour at Le Gesù. Before the show even began, a slideshow on the projection screen invited audience members to text in questions, heckles, jokes, or tell Jimmy about a special occasion happening that night. Already, you could feel that this 425-seat theater was going to host a very intimate and interactive show. The crowd got warmed up with an array of short jokes and comical warning messages sliding through the big screen.


FANTASIA 2018: The First Week's Recap!

It feels great to be back covering the Fantasia Film Festival for the CJLO 1690 AM team. Normally, the first week of the festival requires a light viewing as I try to balance my schedule. I also try to make a master schedule, so that I can make the final push to see what I wanted to see in the final weeks of the festival. Everyone, including CJLO DJ’s, is in my ears telling me what I need to check out. I am very happy that I got time to make it to my final Thursday screening of Under The Silver Lake. Check out the first week’s recap below!

ComicCon 2018: Two Main Highlights for Avid Geeks

Montréal's 10th annual ComicCon ended on Sunday after a three-day celebration of geek culture. This being my first Comic-Con, I wasn't really sure of what to expect, but I was still pleasantly surprised. I attended a variety of events, but I'm going to talk about the two I enjoyed the most: BattleCOM and the DreakHacks Gaming Zone.
