What did you miss?
A comedian who lives in an apple.
Another one who doesn’t know if he can stare our host in the face.
A Mads Mikkelsen impersonation.
And the answer to everyone’s question: do people of different races taste differently?
Look, it’s going to be awesome. You won’t want to miss it.
Remember the last comedy quiz show on energy, how amazing it was? We’re doing it again but, this time, we’re talking about food! Plus, we’re revealing a brand-new Moutons No More production on stage by reenacting it in front of your very eyes. It has to do with natural health products and we’ve got a special guest star, Dr. Christopher Labos, to help us along.
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 take a skeptical look at nutrition and health! It’s the return of a FYSTT crowd favourite: the comedy quiz show! Regular panelist Andrew Cody is joined by comedians Brad MacDonald, Kuba Kierlanczyk, and returning guest JP the Apostate! We’re uniting comedy talent from Montreal, New York City, and Toronto to talk about food! We will slaughter you with laughter and take a bite out of pseudoscientific nonsense! Then, Jonathan brings to the stage Dr. Christopher Labos, cardiologist and medical journalist, to reveal a brand-new Moutons No More project as the two talk about natural health products. By the end, you will ask yourself, “Who knows what’s inside if it’s natural?”
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 – 8:30: Moutons No More entertains you like no others with its show.
8:30 – 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.

Thanks to Guy Renaud for making available in full the debate we had last January on stage on the following question:
Is criticism of religion necessary to freedom of speech?
On the side of “yes”, Andrew Cody; on the side of “no”, Jennie Laure Sully.
In December, Isabelle talked about sex, baby. Just you… and all the people who showed up! If you miss the show, here are some clips for you! And if you like them, be sure to “like” them! Share them with friends, and check us out on Facebook or Meetup to find out when our next show is happening (it’s March 28! Ssshh!)
We talked Black superstars, genetics, and microaggressions in racism! As always, pictures courtesy of Angie Radczenko (Ng RAD Photography), keeping it fresh with grainy black-and-white for Black History Month!
If you want to come to our shows, click “Follow Independently” (in-joke) on the right-hand side of this blog and you’ll be kept in the loop!
Moutons No More’s monthly show moves to Saturdays and we inaugurate our first such show with a rational look at all things, well, Black!
Our own Guy Renaud hosts a show that contains so much awesomeness, we’re not sure we’ll be able to contain it! Neil deGrasse Tyson, a role model for any aspiring Black scientist, explains evolution and extinctions on Cosmos! We talk about how genetics can be useful to trace back our roots to Africa and to explain differences in skin colour! And we tackle the hot topic of microaggressions: are they tiny acts of racism or bulls#!t?
The show starts one hour later than usual (dinner at 18:00 with us, show starts at 19:00)! Come join us in our digs in Old Montreal, and be sure to stay after the show. Talk, drink, strike up new friendships, debate: as long as it’s civilized, we’ll all be fine!

Here’s a very cool 10-minute summary of our one-hour comedy quiz show on energy that took place last November (Funny You Should Think That! 6). It features Andrew Cody, David Pryde, Jonathan Jarry, Chris Sandiford, and Darren Henwood (and his mustache).
