The Just For Laughs festival turned 30 this year — too early for a mid-life crisis, too late for teenage angst, but just the right age for a two-hour retrospective... hosted by George.

Over the last three decades, a who's who of stand up talent has appeared on the stage in Montreal for JFL. In 30/30 Hindsight, which airs Saturday, September 14 at 10 pm on CBC, George takes a tour through some of the best bits from the festival's long history. And that means hilarious stand up from some of the greatest comedians in the world.

Canadian talents like Rick Mercer, Ron James and Shaun Majumder appear, along with comedy stars Louis C.K., Joan Rivers, Steve Martin, Jon Stewart and many more.

Here's a clip from the special featuring the late Greg Giraldo, recorded at JFL back in 1999:

Check out the 30/30 Hindsight website for more details (they have a Cheat Sheet), and tune in Saturday for a great evening of laughs.
