Ready to giggle, snicker, whoop and chuckle? Royalton Luxury Resorts has announced its inaugural “Just For Laughs Resort Week,” a comedy event in partnership Montreal-based entertainment group Just For Laughs, which produces the world’s largest annual comedy festival. This November 8-14, comedy’s crème de la crème, including a Saturday Night Live alumnus, will take over Royalton’s newest addition, Royalton Riviera Cancun, for seven days of non-stop laughter and light-hearted fun. Complimentary to all resort guests, the weeklong event will feature stand-up comedy performances, busker-style sidewalk shows, and “sleight-of-hand” workshops.
Noted headliners include Saturday Night Live’s Jim Breuer, Last Comic Standing’s Alonzo Bodden, Vegas magician Ben Seidman, and more soon-to-be announced Just For Laughs comedians. “This partnership brings guests a uniquely entertaining experience to enjoy the world’s best comedy without ever having to leave our luxurious all-inclusive resort,” said Francisco Jorge, general manager at Royalton Riviera Cancun. “We’re thrilled to bring our popular entertainment to Royalton Luxury Resorts vacationers in Cancun,” said Christine Melko-Ross, VP of operations and business affairs for Just For Laughs.
“As one of the top comedy brands in the world, we produce festivals and large-scale tours across North America. This time, we’re very excited to pack our bags and head south with some of our funniest alumni for the inaugural edition of Just For Laughs Resort Week – which we’re confident will be the first of many.” At Royalton Riviera Cancun, luxury accommodations range from family-friendly suites to adults-only rooms at the boutique hotel within a hotel, Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun. All guests can enjoy Royalton’s All-In Luxury™ offerings, which include reservation-free gourmet dining at nine restaurants, free WiFi throughout the resort, and an onsite à la carte Royal Spa which features a hydrotherapy circuit and full selection of pampering treatments.
