Overview

This show happens SUNDAY nights! Shows start at 8:15pm. Comedy Abroad happens weekly, where top Montreal comics perform at M Bar. The crowd is international, the comics are hilarious, and the beer is cheap (swish!). Top Montreal pros and fast-rising-amateurs take to the stage. Our comics have performed at Just For Laughs, Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne International, Halifax Comedy Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, & been on network television in Canada, USA, and Australia. We're a "pay-by-donation" meaning there's no charge to come in, grab a seat, enjoy the show. We'll ask you for a donation later on in the evening. We'd love it if you could kick us a $8-10 - especially if you had a blast, but pay-what-you-feel. Did we mention the beer is cheap? We just did! Showtime is 8:15pm, every Sunday night. Happy hour starts at 7:15 with even cheaper prices. We're near Metro Berri UQAM. Bring senses of humour!

Address correction, actually 1245 rue Saint-André. Very nice environment and crowd. Good time for a younger adult scene!

Personal taste in comedy is totally subjective and so this review isn't based on the performers themselves, but rather, the concept and venue. The venue is very cool; located in the basement of the M Hostel with an awesome vibe. The staff were welcoming and...More
