Has It Been That Long? 30 Years Of Just For Laughs
April 22, 2013

Just For Laughs turns 30 years old this year.

For most people, 30 is a good age to take stock of your life, rethink your priorities, and maybe consider moving out of your parents' basement.

Well, for a venerable comedy institution, it's also a great time to look back and select some of the best and funniest moments.

Considering the level of talent that has appeared on the show, it had to be tough to choose the best - but '30/30 Hindsight', which airs tomorrow night, Tuesday, April 23 at 8 pm on CBC, does a pretty great job.

The special is also a chance to look at how our world has changed since JFL first appeared in 1983.

The show will cover the big issues like technology, economics, politics, human rights, and pop culture. But don't worry: it's a comedy show. Any learning that takes place will be purely coincidental.

The two-hour special is hosted by none other than George, who'll be your guide to some great material, with comedy from CBC stars like Rick Mercer, Ron James and Shaun Majumder alongside classic bits from Jon Stewart, Joan Rivers, Louis C.K., Steve Martin, and lots more.

If you're watching, you can join the conversation on Twitter - follow @Just_For_Laughs, and Tweet using the hashtag #3030hindsight.

Don't miss it tomorrow at 8pm on CBC.
