New Faces for 2016: This Year’s Talent Search Produced a Stellar List

Just for laughs 2016

Written by James Lang

Fresh Faces 2016

If laughter is the best medicine, the New Faces event hosted at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal is the comedic equivalent of the CDC and the FDA. Great potential cures go in, and the only the best come out to help make the world a better place.

This unbelievable event is designed to bring together the most influential talent scouts, TV networks, agents, club owners and record producers for a single event; offering once-in-a-lifetime access to comedy’s most talented up-and-comers.

After a full year of scouring the international comedy scene, the list of those invited to perform and make new connections has been made public.

Here at Best Comedy Tickets, we love all of the people that make comedy the most light-hearted, fun industry in the world. We’d like to specifically highlight the following three comedians, while congratulating them on their selection for this prestigious opportunity:

Neko White

There are few up-and-coming comedians with the ability to handle a crowd like Neko White. Don’t believe me? Check out this clip of Neko hosting a show at The Carolines on Broadway! I am sure that Neko will bring all of that talent and stage-presence to his moment in the spotlight at New Faces for 2016.

Jordan Rock

You might think Jordan Rock gets to ride into comedy on his brother’s coattails. But, as Judah Friedlander puts it in Ladies and Gentleman, Jordan Rock, a famous pedigree in comedy will get people to give you their attention for a moment. But, stand-up success is earned, not inherited. Jordan has proven time and again that he’s his own man and he’s worthy of the Rock name. We’re so excited to see his name selected for the honor of appearing at Just for Laughs.

Sarah Tollemache

Back in 2008 Sarah earned a spot on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. To see her in action, check out Sarah’s performance as part of AXS Gotham Live. She’s definitely got her own style and we’re excited to see how she capitalizes on her moment at New Faces 2016.

Tim Dillon

A late bloomer in the world of comedy, Tim decided to try his hand at stand-up after serving as a juror for a murder trial. A fellow juror thought he was hilarious and told him to try it out. Since his plunge into stand-up at the age of 25, he’s appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and host his own podcast. For a preview of what Tim Dillon is all about, check out Tim’s appearance on Gothem Comedy Live!
