On December 17th of 2019 I recorded the voiceover for a documentary that pays tribute to a new type of show which made its appearance in 1960: the one-man-show. The director, Christophe David, had one guideline only; keep it simple, “don’t overdo it”. What a pleasure! A tribute to legendary artists who shined through this new art form, from Fernand Raynaud to Muriel Robin, from Raymond Devos to Florence Foresti, not to mention stars such as Jacqueline Maillan, Coluche, Pierre Desproges and Sylvie Joly. Airing Friday January 31st on France 3. You can see an excerpt from this documentary, “60 Years of the One Man Show”, here on this page.
