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.

The Body of Evidence – Episode 007 – Red Wine

We’ve all heard it: red wine is good for your heart. It was even on 60 Minutes! But how strong is the science behind this claim? And will drinking a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc make Dr. Labos more interesting to the women around him?

The Body of Evidence – Episode 005 – E-Cigarettes

TBOE Logo 2015 300

E-cigarettes are all the rage these days, and their manufacturers are claiming all kinds of things: they help you quit smoking, they’re healthier, they’ll enhance your sex life (OK, maybe not the last one). Is “vaping” better than smoking? Jonathan Jarry and Dr. Christopher Labos look at the body of evidence on e-cigarettes. Their addictive discussion is laced with lines from The Lion King, quotes from Shakespeare, and obscure phonological references.
