Each year in November, Movember makes mustaches pop up on thousands of male faces in Canada and around the world. Thanks to their “Mo”, these men collect large sums of money essential to men’s health research, particularly for prostate cancer and men’s mental health, to raise awareness. For our seventh edition’s closing night, M for Montreal and its partners Movember MTL, Movember Canada, Just for laughs, Sid Lee, Zoofest, CHOM, Radio NRJ and Moosehead are proud to join the cause and present the very first edition of M for Movember. On Saturday November 17 at Club Soda starting at 10 p.m., a unique evening will take place gathering comedians, musicians and one of a kind local figures to end this 2012 edition the way it should be!

Radio host MC Gilles, musicians Yann Perreau, Arthur Comeau of Radio Radio, Catherine Pogonat, DJ Mini and Tim of The Stills, and the humorists Adib Alkhalidey, Neev Benshimon and Jérémy Demay will step up on stage one after the other for the cause in an evening staged by Marie-Lise Chouinard. Five hours of musical acts, stand-up comedy, iPod battles between key figures and guests, “M for Mustache” prize-giving, DJ sets, crowning of a Miss and Mister Movember. An exclusive event and a night of joyful “capillary” action where all profits will be given to the cause. Mo Bros and Mo Sistas of this world unite!
