Funny You Should Think That! 13

FYSST 13 Poster v2 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.

To usher in a new season of shows, we bring back the ever popular comedy quiz show! A panel of stand-up comedians try to answer Jonathan’s questions on a skeptical topic, and the audience gets to play as well, with prizes to be won! Who brings the funny this month? It’s Thanos Michailopoulos (The Body of Evidence podcast); Daniel Carin and Chris Sanford (The Ladies and Gentlemen Comedy Show); and our permanent panelist, Andrew Cody.

For the second half of the show, Jonathan and Dr. Christopher Labos take to the stage to talk about the pitfalls of biomedical research, from the lab to the clinic. Why is it so difficult to bring a drug to market? They’ll try not to insult each other too much.

It’s all happening on Saturday, September 26 at Pub St-Paul in Old Montreal!

You know the drill:

6:00 – 7:00: Come and order food and drinks, relax, and talk with us!

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 contributions to help us keep this the best skeptical show in town.

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.

Funny You Should Think That! 11: April 25, Brass Door Pub

FYSTT St-Paul Banner

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 need. Come for the show; stay for the conversation.

This month, we bring you an all-new skeptically inclined game show: SKEPTICAL PASSWORD! Members of the audience will be paired up with a stand-up comedian who will work up a sweat trying to make them guess what the password is by saying only one word. Each round will be centred on a particular myth or misconception and Moutons No More will shed some light on those mistaken beliefs in between rounds. Prizes to be won, fun to be had, plus stand-up comedy in the second half! It’s educational, entertaining, and the food will be amazing!

**We are hosting our show at the Brass Door Pub, 2171 Crescent Street, in the heart of downtown Montreal. The staff is amazing, the ambience is just what we need, and we have tried at least four different dishes and the food is really, really good (take it from Andrew, who is a harsh food critic). The alcohol is also more affordable, so we hope to see even more of you and we hope to make the Brass Door our new home!

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.
