Sunwing Vacations Announces Partnership With Juste pour rire

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 18, 2015) - Sunwing Vacations is delighted to announce their partnership with the leading name in Quebecois comedy, Juste pour rire. The new alliance was recently celebrated with a one off performance by comedian, Jeremy Demay, at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport where he entertained passengers about to board Sunwing flights to Cuba and St. Martin with a series of hilarious gags in the style of the famous TV show while disguised as a Sunwing gate attendant. The video of the stunt, which was posted on his Facebook page, attracted close to 100,000 views during the first 12 hours.

Over the coming months, the two brands will continue to work together to bring Quebecers a unique blend of sunshine and laughter for the current Juste pour rire comedy tour across the province, running now until the beginning of July 2016. Featuring some of Quebec's most sought-after comedy artists, including Jeremy Demay, Maxim Martin and Laurent Paquin, at each performance venue comedy lovers will have the opportunity to enter a contest to win an all-inclusive Sunwing vacation. Courtesy of the tour operator, four lucky winners and their companions will get to Experience the Difference™ of a being on a Sunwing vacation relaxing at one of two of Sunwing's exclusive luxury resorts -- either Royalton Hicacos Resort and Spa in Cuba or Royalton Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa in Mexico. Also in the program are meet and greet opportunities with the headlining comedians during the course of their tour around the province.

Sam Char, Executive Vice-President of Sunwing Vacations Quebec commented, "Juste pour rire and Sunwing Vacations are both family-owned companies who pride themselves on delivering experiences that make people happy so this seemed like an obvious partnership. Juste pour rire loves to make people laugh; at Sunwing Vacations we are experts in delivering holiday experiences that leave our customers with happy memories which will bring a smile to their face for years to come."

Lucie Rozon, Executive Producer and General Manager for Juste pour rire spectacles added, "To me, Sunwing is a promise of joy and good times […] which complements the business of Juste pour rire; the feeling of relaxing and laughing with a comedian that makes you happy."
