The annual Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal holds an awards show every year during its sprawling, weeks-long run. They hand out awards like Comedy Person of the Year, Comedy Writer of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and more, with a mix of solid pros, up-and-comers and living legends getting fêted by their colleagues. Paste was invited to the red carpet for this year’s show, which means we got to awkwardly talk for a minute or two with some of the award winners and presenters. Here’s a gallery of the photos we took, along with some choice quotes from the stars who graciously spent a half-hour out of their day walking very slowly through a room full of cameras and microphones. And below you can find a full list of the awards and presenters.
