While Zoofest (July 7 to 30) branches out into a uniquely cool indie humour vibe with everything from straight-up stand-up (by Janeane Garofalo, Andy Dick and George Wallace, among others) to weird yet hilarious stage shows, Oh My Fest! (July 16 and 17) is all about celebrating YouTuber talent from all over Quebec, live and in the flesh. Here are five shows you won’t want to miss at both events.
