Moutons No More is back on stage for a third season of shows!
Moutons No More is changing its game in 2016 and we’re excited to bring you the following changes.
But first, the sad news: our stage show, Funny You Should Think That!, is going on hiatus indefinitely for personal reasons. Our multimedia productions, however, are not affected in the least. The podcasts and videos we put out will continue to regale you this year.
While FYSTT is going away for the moment, we are not ready to step off the stage, especially since we found an amazing new location that we will surely come to call “home”. The Katacombes, on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, two steps away from the Saint-Laurent metro station on the green line, is welcoming our troop of freethinkers with a gorgeous stage, enough room for 125 people, and a column made of skulls (they’re not real).
Two new shows will be rising from the ashes of FYSTT. Here’s what they are, why you should be thrilled, and what to do to be kept in the loop:
THE BODY OF EVIDENCE: LIVE ON STAGE!
You listen to the podcast; you watch the videos; you read the blog. Now you can come and see us on stage! Dr. Christopher Labos, cardiologist, and I will be co-hosting a stage show version of the podcast three times a year at Katacombes. The comedy quiz show I hosted for FYSTT will return, with stand-up comedians and permanent panelist Chris Labos trying to answer my questions on health, medicine, and science. Plus short talks, Q&As, interviews, and bickering. Always.
To come to the show, 2 ways:
- Find us on Facebook by searching for “The Body of Evidence” (if you see our faces, you haven’t landed on the Madonna movie fan page) and “like” the page. Stage shows will be created as Facebook events through this page.
- Go to our website at http://www.bodyofevidence.ca and enter your email address under “Subscribe”.
LE MONDE MERVEILLEUX DU SCEPTICISME
Le podcast sceptique animé par Isabelle Stephen et Christopher Hammock fera un retour sur scène en début d’été aux Katacombes avec sa combinaison usuelle de contenu fantastique, d’invités hors-pairs et d’enthousiasme démesuré! Le seul spectacle sceptique francophone au Québec s’attaquera au paranormal, à la religion et à la pseudoscience et continuera de démontrer que le scepticisme n’est pas frustrant mais bien merveilleux!
Pour assister aux spectacles, 2 façons de procéder:
- Cherchez “Le monde merveilleux du scepticisme” sur Facebook et cliquez “J’aime”! Les spectacles seront annoncés sur cette page.
- Visitez le site Web du podcast à http://www.lmmds.ca et écoutez l’émission pour être informé des spectacles à venir!
A final word on the past two years: we extend our warmest thanks to all the people who have come to our shows. We have had a blast putting together 15 shows and seeing our audience grow, especially the friends and relatives who were invited even though they were not skeptics. We firmly believe skepticism should not be solely addressed behind closed doors but should be made accessible to all, and we will continue to apply this mantra with our newest stage shows by combining discussions, humour, education, and good, old-fashioned fun.
Our Meetup page will disappear in April, since we are no longer receiving money to keep it going. We don’t want to lose you, so please find Moutons No More on Facebook or subscribe to our website at http://www.MoutonsNoMore.com to see the content that we generate.
We hope to see you at the first Body of Evidence show in a couple of months and the Monde merveilleux du scepticisme show at the beginning of the summer. Thank you for supporting us and enjoying our productions. With your collaboration, we will continue to spread the word about critical thinking in the Montreal community and beyond… in both English et en français!
