Toronto comedy fest JFL42 already announced a pretty stand-up bill for its 2019 event, but organizers have now added a series of more acts.

This morning, JFL42 revealed a series of additional events, including one dubbed "In Conversation with Broad City," meaning the show's Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are indeed taking part. On September 20, the pair will headline the Sony Centre, where "Jacobson and Glazer will sit down with a guest moderator to reflect on Broad City's early days as a web series, becoming the new queens of TV comedy, their uniquely prolific collaboration and much more," a press release promises.

Besides that, the beloved John Mulaney has added another show, taking place September 22. This comes on top of his previously revealed co-headlining shows with Pete Davidson. The newly added Mulaney show will not feature Davidson but an as-yet-revealed "special guest."

On top of that, JFL42 has added the Doughboys podcast, Jim Norton and Jay Pharoah.

As previously reported, JFL42 will take over Toronto from 19 to 29. Other highlights include a special event honouring Carol Burnett, as well as sets by Eric Andre, Queer Eye superstar Jonathan Van Ness, Gabriel Iglesias, Nick Kroll, the How Did This Get Made? podcast, Marc Maron, Michelle Wolf, Steve-O, Cristela Alonzo, Michael Rapaport and more.
