November is the best month of the year for two reasons. First, because I was born in November. And if I was never born, you’d never be able to read this post. Secondly, it’s the month of the Mo—also known as Movember. Which means it’s an opportunity to let your inhibitions run free and your moustache make a difference for men’s health.

The time has come to sign up at Movember.com and get ready to grow your moustache for 30 days. Do you need a little guidance to help you transform your upper lip? Well, you’re in luck, as I’ve polled some of my closest and hairiest stand-up comedian pals for tips on how to craft the most glorious of face brooms.

Disclaimer: Please use your best judgment when crafting your own moustache. Some of these guys are big-time losers, despite having beautiful nose skirts.
