Anything goes at Zoofest and OFF-JFL. Each year, festivalgoers who set off on this no-holds-barred adventure have the chance to discover new artists, new concepts and new material not only in comedy, but also in theatre and music. Those daring enough to brave the shows are handsomely rewarded since they get to see rising talents before their careers take off or another side to their favourite artist.
Founded in 2009 with the goal of showcasing up-and-coming artists, Zoofest spun convention on its head for five entire years before teaming up with OFF-JFL, its English cousin. With more than 125 shows a year, Zoofest and OFF-JFL deliver it all, from the envelope-pushing to the eyebrow-raising to those hilarious awkward moments, in English and in French.
An exciting mix of dance, theatre, burlesque, improv, comedy and music, Zoofest’s and OFF-JFL’s programming promises to shower spectators with an embarrassment of comedic riches.
