Funny You Should Think That! 12 (May 23rd)

FYSST 12 Poster v1 300

A show of comedy, reason, and alcohol. FUNNY YOU SHOULD THINK THAT! is a monthly event (intelligently) designed to make you laugh and think. Moutons No More takes to the stage with amazing guests to talk pseudoscience, lambast religion, and get you to think more critically. It’s like the Rolls Royce of Skeptics in the Pub and just what Montreal needs. Come for the show; stay for the conversation.

For our last show before the summer break, we focus on how to think about contentious issues. Do you want to be more rational? Andrew will give us pointers on how to be better critical thinkers and how to debate intelligently. He will then launch us into table discussions centred around three topical issues. Will you fall prey to rash judgements? Will you commit the sin of identifying too strongly with your ideas? Will your beliefs cloud your reason?

To end this awesome show and usher in the summer, we are proud to feature stand-up comedian Eddy King. You may recognize his name: he did a one-man show at Théâtre St-Denis after opening for Rachid Badouri and he’s performed at Just for Laughs. His perspective on racism and gay marriage will make you laugh then think, which is the best kind of comedy, we think.

You know the drill:

6:00 – 7:00: Come and order food and drinks, relax, talk with us, while something skeptical, rational, and entertaining plays on the stage television.

7:00 – 9:00: Moutons No More entertains you like no others with its show.

9:00 – midnight: Stick around as long as you want and talk! FYSTT is more than a show: it’s also a place to come and talk to other like-minded and on the cusp-of-being-like-minded individuals.

Pay what you can. We always ask for donations to help us keep this the best skeptical show in town.
