JFL42 to return in 2013

The Toronto edition of Just For Laughs is in permanent “on again” mode. The festival has announced dates for the second go-round of JFL42, happening Sept. 19-28, 2013.

This time, the festival encompasses two full weekends (last year’s inaugural edition ended on a Friday). No word on acts yet, but the festival is actively soliciting audience feedback through social media.

Check out Third Beat’s in-depth coverage of last year’s edition.
