Just for Laughs And English Comedy Brussels proudly presents their first International Comedy Night, held at espace Lumen, just next to place Flagey (chaussée de Boondael 36, 1050 Brussels)
For the 4th edition of the Just For Laughs festival in Brussels it was obvious that we had to put english speaking comedians on the map of Europe's capital first and only humor festival.

Al Lubel, the 5 times star of the Late Show with David Letterman and former support for Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Hicks will headline the festival on may the 2nd. Al’s award-winning Edinburgh show ‘Al Lubel is Mentally Al’ mesmerised audiences with his stunningly well crafted and self aware observations full of terrific little asides so much that you’ll never forget his name.
