Sarah Stupar talks Zoofest / JFL / OFF-JFL

JFL is here kiddies, or as I like to call it, comedy Christmas. Personally I find JFL (including Off-JFL and Zoofest) to be the best festival in town. Place des Arts gets transformed into some kind of crazy carnival complete with freaks and weird performance art, and the funniest of the funny descend on Montreal to bring laughter to the naughty AND nice! I'll be walking the JFL beat for the whole festival, follow my advice and laughter will ensue.
