Come for the medical information; stay for the laughter! Jonathan Jarry and Dr. Christopher Labos take their bickering-infused science-based medicine podcast to the stage with The Body of Evidence Stage Show! It’s medicine that tastes funny and science made easy.
First, Jonathan Jarry hosts a comedy quiz show on the topic of celebrity health fads! Do you know what Gwyneth Paltrow rubs on her face? Have you heard about Demi Moore’s secret for staying young? None of these claims make scientific sense, so we will skewer them and have some fun! The panelists on the show will be comedians David Pryde, Bianca Yates, Darren Henwood, and permanent panelist Dr. Christopher Labos. Amazingly cool prizes to be won by members of the audience.
Finally, we will go back in time to learn how cancer went from “that thing where cells divide too quickly” to a disease caused by mutations. Chromosomes, grasshoppers, white eyes, and Gerard Butler will feature (it’ll make sense).
Doors open at 19:00. Entrance is 5$, payable inside. The venue is 18+, so no underage science fans!

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).
You can listen to the entire show here.
Here is the Mad Libs we did at our November stage show based on Mr. Deepak Chopra’s words of wisdom.
You can hear audio from the entire quiz show for free by streaming or downloading a special edition of Within Reason, the monthly podcast that looks at contentious issues from a rational perspective: http://withinreason.podbean.com/e/episode-205-funny-you-should-think-that/
A very warm “thank you” to Angie Radczenko from Ng RAD Photography for the incredible photos. If you are looking for a photographer in Montreal, consider giving her a buzz.
FYSTT 6 was the culmination of an amazing weekend that included Moutons No More talking about skepticism on CJAD radio. Over 40 people came to see our show. We had the amazing talent of David Pryde, Darren Henwood, and Chris Sandiford on stage with us. If you missed it, I hope you had a good excuse.
