Sundays at MBAR!

We have shows Sunday nights, 8:15pm at MBar (1245 rue St. Andre).  Shows are Pay-by-Donation.  Come in, enjoy the show, and later one we’ll request you to pay us what you think the show’s worth. We think it’s worth $8-$10, but don’t just take our word for it.   Folks on TripAdvisor seem to get a kick out of what we do!


Hilarious pro & up-and-coming comics from Montreal (and elsewhere) get onstage for travellers (and locals) simply to make ’em laugh. Credits of (some) performers include festivals like Just For Laughs, Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne Comedy Festival, clubs all around the world, and TV & film.  Swing by, swap accents with the person next to you. Hope to see you!

October 5, 2014: Jason and The Touss!

The greatest challenge of a comedy show website's copywriter is to serve up intriguing, eye-catching headlines that can also double as children's novel titles.  If that's true, we nailed it this week.  And so will Jason and The Touss! Francois Tousignant headlines Sunday's show.  He's serves...


September 21, 2014: F*** NO!!!!

"Fall's my FAVORITE season! The leaves are so pretty, and the air is crisp, and the apples! Oh, THE APPLES!!!!". - the type of pronouncement @jonselig truly hates hearing, upon autumn's arrival. Because that means winter's coming soon. Thus the title of this week's post. Summer's gone. How...

September 14, 2014: S.I.N.T?

Seth Meyers is the new Jimmy Fallon! Chipotle is the new honey mustard! Sunday is the new Thursday (or it could be)! Look, anything's possible.  If "Bullets and Burgers" can be #1 on TripAdvisors's Las Vegas rankings, a Sunday night comedy show in a hostel can...
