 As part of the event, Toronto will also host ComedyCon, the biggest comedy convention in North America. This year, the chosen headliners were Pete Davidson and Issa Rae. Sadly, Davison was recently pulled from the lineup due to conflicts in his schedule.

There are also 42 other comics announced thus far, including Marc Maron, Craig Ferguson, Vir Das, Amanda Seales — the list goes on!

Get ready for a barrel of laughs, Toronto. We’ll be telling our cheesiest knock-knock jokes in preparation.
