    They usually do tape some of the performances to air on The Comedy Network here in Canada at a later date. If I ever hear, I will post here and on my Twitter!

    Aww... man! It probably would've been so easy to meet the Muppeteers there! I'm not gonna be there! :grr:

    Here's what the Muppets FB page has to say about it:

    It’s gonna be the most un-bear-ably wonderful night of Fozzie Bear’s life when we all host and perform live at the JUST FOR LAUGHS COMEDY FESTIVAL in Montreal July 26! It’s sure to be a one-of-a-kind comedy happening...probably because Statler & Waldorf will be there to make sure it never happens again!

    So that's Eric, Steve and Dave at least. Hmmm. My husband has customers in Montreal. I wonder if he can come up with an excuse to visit them in July...

    I need to just win the lottery so anytime a Muppet event is happening I can just go to all of them! XP

    That's so freaking incredible I can barely see straight when I think about it!!!

    And I'm only a few provinces away (living in Nova Scotia and all)...

    Hmmm...I wonder if my boss would notice if I suddenly didn't show up for three days at the end of July (and, when I *did* come back, if he'd notice that I'm wearing a lot of Muppets/JFL souvenirs and only communicating with anybody by using the phrase "MAHNA MAHNA"?). ;)

    This has been a great year to be a Canadian Muppet fan - Kermit plugged The Muppets on George Stromboulopoulos Tonight and Q (from the TV and radio arms of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, respectively), and Q also interviewed Oscar the Grouch, discovering in the process that Oscar's parents are both from the Atlantic Provinces (with his dad from New Brunswick and his mother from Nova Scotia...oh, Caroll Spinney, you wonderful nut...)

    ...and now, Just For Laughs! If this keeps up the Muppets might just show up in my backyard! I'll take 'em all out lobster fishing if they do! (Although that might give the Swedish Chef flashback nightmares from the TMS days...)

    I'm thinking the lobsters in Canada are unlikely to be banditos. Then again, what do I know? :)

    You're lucky. I live right there!! (Unluckily, I'm off to camp a few days earlier, so I miss the whole thing!) They made sure to annonuce that the show is rated PG-13. Anyone know what's gonna be happening? Or is that just a way to make sure little kids don't show up in that area (with the bar, etc.)
    You're right. It has been pretty good for the Muppets in Canada this year. Recently they had a Muppet bus go around and give out free Muppet stuff to promote the movie. That was great. But I can't get over how unlucky I am for that to be happening on that specific date! :grr:
