On the September 16, 2023 edition of the Richard Crouse show we’ll meet Jon Heder, Jon Gries and Efren Ramirez, the stars of “Napoleon Dynamite,” the movie Jim Carrey said “changed comedy movies.” The story of a listless and alienated teenager who decides to help his new friend Pedro win the class presidency in their small western high school, while dealing with his bizarre family life back home, is one of the most quoted movies of all time, and now you can revisit the fun when the stars bring “Napoleon Dynamite” to Toronto for a special screening and Q&A at the Elgin Theatre as part of Just For Laughs Toronto on September 27.

Then, we’ll get to know comedian Ronny Chieng. You know him as a senior correspondent on The Daily Show, the star of Ronny Chieng Takes Chinatown, one of the stars of “Crazy Rich Asians” and the recent blockbuster “M3GAN,” and as one of the most I demand comedians out there. Today we’ll talk about why he waited until he was in university to give stand-up comedy a try and why he says, “I’m still trying to figure out if I am funny,” despite selling out theatres across the world, including two shows at the Meridian Hall in Toronto on September 23 and 24th as part of Just For Laughs Toronto.

Just for Laughs 2017: “In Conversation” with Trevor Noah on Trump & more!

JFL Pro calledRichard’s on stage Just for Laughs “In Conversation” with Trevor Noah “one of the best ‘In Conversation’ events ever.” Read all about it in the Hollywood Reporter! Some excerpts: “There are things to be angry about. There are reasons to mobilize. But some of this stuff Donald Trump does — hey, just laugh at that.” “The idea of him being in control of this country is a frightening thing. I also know you cannot be afraid when you’re laughing, but you also have to acknowledge there is a certain element of danger.”
