Montreal's Just for Laughs comedy festival has been around for decades gaining its reputation as a place where the hottest young comedians take the stage. 

Now they're going to take thousands of hours of unseen stand-up by comics such as Dave Chappelle, Louis C.K., Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan and Jon Stewart (just to name a few), and make it all available on a YouTube channel to watch for free. 

They'll be releasing new videos three times a week at YouTube.com/JustforLaughs.

The channel launched today with: 

Louis C.K. circa 2003

 

 

 

Dave Chappelle circa 2000

 

And Jon Stewart circa 1992

1992, by the way, was not a great year for blazers.
