For the first time ever, this Nov. 8 to Nov. 14, the Royalton Riviera Cancun in Mexico will host Just For Laughs Resort Week—a free comedy event in collaboration with the Canadian entertainment group Just For Laughs.

The weeklong event is complimentary for guests of the Royalton Riviera Cancun and Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun and features stand-up comedy performances, busker-style sidewalk shows, and sleight-of-hand workshops. Headliners include “Saturday Night Live” alumnus Jim Breuer, Just For Laughs veteran and Season 3 winner of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” Alonzo Bodden, and Vegas magician and actor Ben Seidman.

The Royalton Riviera Cancun features 843 rooms and suites separated into three distinct sections that range from family-friendly suites to adults-only rooms—the Diamond Club, the Resort and the Hideaway at the Royalton Riviera Cancun, an extravagant hotel within a hotel. All-In Luxury offerings, available to all guests, include access to 11 pools and one children’s splash park, nine specialty restaurants, and 13 bars, as well as free WiFi, 24-hour concierge service, and the use of non-motorized watersports equipment. Room rates start at $251 pp per night; $335 per night dbl. For more information, visit royaltonresorts.com/en/riviera-cancun.
