Thanksgivukkah! An overlapping of American Thanksgiving, and the epochal Jewish holiday of Hannukah. This merger of turkey and potato pancakes is the Haley’s Comet of Converging Celebrations!
We’re going to celebrate this trivial occasion with an American headliner, less Jews than normal, and loads of comics who are indifferent to such nonsense.
We’re seriously stoked! This week’s headliner is one-time Yank DeAnne Smith! DeAnne returns to MBar after a year of performances which included The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, Just For Laughs, the Edinburgh Fringe! She will douse you in oily cranberry sauce if you miss this show! Here’s a clip of DeAnne at the Melbourne Comedy Fest from a couple of years back:
This week’s host is guy who’s demolishing stages coast to…well…Montreal. Morgan O’Shea blew away the Maritimes in September, and the guy’s comedy momentum personified – whatever that means!
Also on the show to ring in the season of commercialism: Shawn Stenhouse! Vlad Levitt! Gina Freeman! John St. Godard! Ali Mohammadi! Jon Selig!
It all happens 8:45, Thursday, November 28th at MBar in the basement of M Montreal Hostel (1245 St. Andre, below St. Catherine, Berri-UQAM metro). Please enter via the door on the back left of the hostel that has a big “M” on it. Parking in the back of the hostel is included!

The show is “Pay-What-You-Can”. Come in, sit down and enjoy. We’re hoping you can afford a $6-10 donation. You’ll be MORE than fine with it by the time the hat comes around! SEE YOU THEN!
