Zut alors! The star of BBC’s Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3), Live at the Electric (BBC3) and Sky’s Set List (Sky Atlantic) is coming to Swindon.
Marcel Lucont, flâneur, raconteur, bon-viveur, and easily the greatest UK-based French comedian around, arrives fresh and somehow unruffled from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe just in time for a tour of the UK.
The suave, witty and utterly irresistible Frenchman has proved to be a cult hit worldwide, performing critically-acclaimed sell-out shows at Melbourne Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe, and New Zealand Comedy Festival, as well as gigs in Singapore, Scandinavia and all over Europe. This, his first UK tour is a compilation of his best material, as well as some new gems thrown in for good measure.
Devastatingly funny, the debonair misanthrope delivers slick, sensual comedy featuring deliciously wicked poetry, diary entries, songs and many a jeu d’esprit. Expect acerbic Francophile waggishness, a laconic disdain for the British and a turtleneck jumper.
