Gala ComediHa!: flawless course for Laurent Paquin

For the ComediHa! which he hosted for the very first time, Laurent Paquin was very present. We saw him in numbers, both solo and with guests, who enhanced an evening with very pleasant humor and in his image.

He said he was approached by the ComediHa! Fest to put a little intelligence in the Gala evenings presented at the Capitole de Québec.

With a friendly face and at ease on the boards, Laurent Paquin launched the Gala with a nice entry on the “small talk”, these small innocuous conversations on the street and in the shops.

It’s okay, he said, to talk about the weather and the mundane to strangers. No need to go into big meaningful interactions.

“The dogs ‘sniff’ each other the fart, we talk about the weather. I prefer the second thing,” he said.

He got a kick out of birthday wishes on Facebook, which he compared to tsunamis of love.

“Take your birthday off of Facebook, you’ll see people laughing a lot at your party,” he remarked.

Anthony Kavanagh and Laurent Paquin then played the nice comedians without preventing themselves from saying a few dirty words. A duo that the guest compared to an Oreo cookie… double cream.

Lacroix and Bond

“I invited you to spread love,” Paquin told his guest, reminding him that there had been a lot of hate and negative this year.

“Who writes your lyrics? Julien Lacroix and Philippe Bond,” Kavanagh replied.

Guillaume Pineault has forged links between the professions of priest and comedian.

In an issue on religion, because he wanted to become a priest when he was younger, Guillaume Pineault explained that the profession of comedian was close to that of a priest.

“I am standing, I say church words, I tell you anything and you listen to me and I too have colleagues who have done unacceptable things,” he said.

Just before the intermission, Laurent Paquin took his ukulele for a number, very successful, with topical songs.

“I saw the price of gas and I wanted to set myself on fire, but I can’t afford it,” he sang. He also made reference to the Montreal Canadiens who, like fruit, don’t last long and rot the rest of the time.

After the break, he returned for a well-shot and very funny segment on fatphobia. We also saw him in fetus with Simon Boudreault.

Julie Ringuette and Pascal Morrissette then paid tribute to BBs with humorous and revisited versions of Be careful, you are in the moon and give me my chance which referred to their life as parents.

New dad, Ludovick Bourgeois joined them, to the delight of the crowd, to make a new version of Alone in battle.

♦ Guillaume Pineault and Anne-Élisabeth Bossé will host the last Gala ComediHa! The guests will be François Boulianne, Jean-Michel Martel, Jean-Thomas Jobin, Katherine Levac, Suzie Bouchard, Florence Longpré, Guillaume Wagner, Matthieu Pepper and Martin Perizzolo.
