Just For Laughs Gags Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Where are the Gags filmed?
A: Our pranks have been filmed in the UK, Asia & Canada. These days we mainly film our pranks in Montreal, Canada. Strangely enough this is also where the Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival is organized every year… weird coincidence huh?
Q: What’s the name of the actor in “insert gag name here” prank video?
A: The Gags are a unique show because our actors are not your run of the mill actors, most are just normal people that consider the Gags a job and don’t want to be known or recognized because it would make their jobs difficult. Because of the show’s format (Hidden Camera) it isn’t in our interests to divulge too much about the actor’s identities since this would get them more recognized by people on the street.
However, if you really need to know we do have an IMDB page.
Q: I was caught in one of your gags/pranks, where can I see it?
A: If this has happened to you, SUCKER! We got you! Ok, back to being serious, please get in touch with us via email or through our Twitter, Facebook or Google+. When you get in touch with us, try to give us as much information as possible, where and when you where caught and what was the prank/gag. It happens sometimes that the gag hasn’t been uploaded to the YouTube channel yet.
Q: What is the name of the blond hot girl?
A: Its amazing how many people ask this question. Now, assuming the girl everybody’s talking about is the one from the Sexy Bikini Nun prank, her name is Marie-Pierre Bouchard.
Q: Why the hell can’t I watch Just Kidding Pranks show in Canada? Just For Laughs is a Canadian show! You guys SUCK!
A: First of all we HATES IT when we want to watch a video on YouTube and its geo-blocked so we know your pain. However this is something we have to do temporarily. The deal is that this show is brand new and will air on TV in Canada this fall on the Teletoon network. Because of this we cannot put any of the videos online in Canada up until it actually airs on TV. So if everything goes as planned we should be able to make all Just Kidding videos available to our Canadian fans by this fall. We apologize for sucking!
If you just can’t wait until this fall to watch it you could use a service like Overplay or TunnelBear, both allow you to unblocks access to content restricted from your location but we didn’t tell you
Q: Is it possible to join Just For Laughs Gags as an actor in the prank videos?
