Le Groupe Maurice and Just for Laughs present Juste pour Séniors!

Share this post:

Le Groupe Maurice has teamed up with the Just for Laughs comedy festival to offer Juste pour Séniors, an exclusive festival pass for those 65 years and older.

 

This summer, Le Groupe Maurice, in partnership with the Just for Laughs comedy festival, will be offering the Juste pour Séniors festival pass for seniors aged 65 and over. From July 13 to 28, the festival will feature a series of special performances including Michel Barrette, Lemire Verville, Ben voyons donc and a seniors’ stand-up comedy night (Gala des retraités). Juste pour Séniors pass holders will have access to numerous perks like discounts and VIP treatment, including the chance to meet and take a photo with your favourite comedians!

 

Seniors’ gala

After the smashing success of Les retraités en spectacle in 2017, where Le Groupe Maurice residents got to try their hand at stand-up comedy, we knew we had to do it again! We wanted to give seniors the chance to relive the incredible experience of performing on stage before a laughing audience.

This time, they’re in the big leagues, as 10 Le Groupe Maurice residents will perform as part of the Just for Laughs festival at the Monument-National theatre. Trained by Quebec’s comedy school (the ENH) and equipped with a repertoire of amusing stories and anecdotes, these 10 residents will become stand-up comics for a night and deliver guaranteed laughs.

 

[The comedy potential of] Quebec’s seniors has been a well-kept secret for far too long! In teaming up with the Just for Laughs festival, we wanted to put the spotlight on seniors and celebrate an audience that seeks adventure as much as laughter therapy. Besides aligning with the mission and values of Le Groupe Maurice, Juste pour Séniors is an ideal way to build engagement between senior citizens and the Quebec audience. It’s yet another opportunity to prove that getting older doesn’t mean you stop having fun!”

Juste pour Séniors pass

The Juste pour Séniors pass offers senior festival-goers a VIP experience, with numerous perks including:

  • Discounts on front-row seats
  • Access to VIP lounges at performance venues
  • Access to Le Groupe Maurice’s VIP space at Place des Arts
  • Photo meet and greet with participating comedians
  • 10% discounts on the festival’s entire program, including musical comedy Mamma Mia!, Soirées Carte Blanche, Le Cabaret à Laurent and much more

 

The pass is available with the purchase of two tickets to any of the following four comedy shows:

  • Michel Barrette, who will be performing his most recent comedy routine, Drôle de vie, featuring stories and anecdotes delivered with warmth, humour and nostalgia.
  • Daniel Lemire and Pierre Verville, real-life friends and comedic accomplices, have prepared a show full of improbable dialogues between wacky characters (played by Lemire) and celebrities (played by Verville).
  • The series Ben voyons donc ! will feature a beloved Quebec personality, who will perform for one night only. Who will be the mystery guest?
  • And of course, Gala des retraités (seniors’ gala) featuring stand-up performances by 10 Le Groupe Maurice residents.

 

With these events and more, festival-goers can expect a rich, diverse and accessible program at this year’s Just for Laughs festival!

“The Juste pour Séniors initiative stems from our desire to make Just for Laughs more inclusive and to offer an entertaining program for all audiences. None of this would have been possible without the major sponsorship of Le Groupe Maurice, which shares our vision of celebrating age and experience in luxury and comfort. With the Juste pour Séniors pass, we want to show appreciation for our seniors and unleash their potential!”

Patrick Rozon, Vice-president for French-language content, Just for Laughs
