Nick Offerman Hosts Esquire's First Movember Marathon of TV Shows and Movies That Feature Serious Moustaches Beginning Monday, November 7th

LOS ANGELES- OCTOBER 26, 2016 - To increase awareness for Men's Health, Esquire has teamed up with Nick Offerman and the Movember Foundation for the network's inaugural seven-day "'Stache Bash"marathon beginning Monday, November 7th through Sunday, November 13th. The channel will air a stache of movies and tv series featuring iconic face fuzz, hosted by New York Times best-selling author and award-winning actor, Nick Offerman. "I am proud to work with Esquire and the Movember Foundation to promote vitality in our robust population of fellows. The glorious abundance of facial hair during Movember is not merely proper comportment, it also serves as a reminder for the male species and those who love them to comprehend their health seriously," says Offerman.

As a pillar of the facial hair community, Offerman will serve as a guide to some of the greatest moustaches of our time while promoting the message of men's well-being through a series of vignettes that support the mission of the Movember Foundation. The Movember Foundation is a global charity focused solely on men's health and raises funds to deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support programs that enable men to live happier, healthier, and longer lives. "Every moustache has the power to spark conversations, which has inspired millions around the world to join the Movember Foundation in the movement for men's health," said Erica Graham, Head of US Partnerships at the Movember Foundation. "With Esquire TV's amazing support, and Nick Offerman's iconic moustache, the Movember Foundation is excited to engage a whole new world of moustache farmers." Matt Hanna, Executive Vice President of Development and Production for Esquire Network, said, "Offerman was the first and only mustachioed man on our list to represent our ''Stache Bash.' And we couldn't be more proud to be partnered with the Movember Foundation on the effort to raise awareness for men's health."

During the "'Stache Bash," Offerman will take viewers on a journey through a virtual Moustache Hall of Fame, featuring "The Crafty Pierre," as seen in the film "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" and of course Ron Swanson's "The Meat Sweeper," made famous in the beloved television series "Parks and Recreation."

About the Movember Foundation

The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men's health on a global scale, year round. We run awareness and fundraising activities, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognized for its fun, disruptive approach to getting men to take action for their health. During Movember, men and women around the world raise funds by growing or supporting a moustache, getting physically active, or by hosting or an event. Not only do these commitments raise vital funds, they also generate powerful and often life-changing conversations. Millions have joined the movement, raising $710M to help us fund more than 1,200 men's health projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. We have one goal: to stop men dying too young.
