Two languages, two opposite universes, one hilarious show. Come see one of the funniest comedians in Quebec, Franky, perform with Éric Lampaert, a delightfully weird stand-up comedian from the UK, in both French and English. They will make you laugh, but not just because of their funny accents!
Deux univers différents, deux langages, un spectacle hilarant. Venez voir Franky, l’un des humoristes le plus drôle du Québec et Éric Lampaert, humoriste franco-britannique des plus coloré, alors qu’ils performeront autant en français qu’en anglais. Ils vous feront rire, mais pas juste à cause de leur drôle d’accent!
Éric Lampaert - Éric Lampaert is a standup comedian, writer and actor.
Éric has performed stand up around the world including here at Just for Laughs, where his set recorded for TV went out on Comedy Central UK, several solo shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and opening for Eddie Izzard (in English and French). He performed a theatre run of his solo show in Paris last year, and in June this year he won the ComediHa International Comedy Award in Quebec.
Éric is slowly but surely making a name for himself in TV in both the UK and France. His appearances include Life’s Too Short (HBO), The Midnight Beast (E4), Impractical Jokers (BBC3) host of How To Survive A Disaster Movie (Channel 5) and starred in a prime time show for TF1 France. He’s even starred alongside Bruce Willis in a TV commercial!
Co-starring in this year’s motion picture Moonwalkers, alongside Rupert Grint and Ron Perlman, and with a substantial role in Luc Besson’s upcoming film Valerian & The City of a Thousand Planets, due for release in summer 2017, Éric is fast on his way to becoming a silver-screen star.
"★★★★ Likeable and enjoying, sweeping up the audience in the sheer energy of his performance. The strength of his scatty character rips through the room like a mini-hurricane" – CHORTLE
Franky - Franky has charmed audiences and critics alike with his unique, innovative style of humor. Drumming to his own beat, Franky takes you into an absurd, thoughtful and extremely funny universe.
Franky began his career as a writer, working for several TV shows, including the sitcom Dominic et Martin. Then, Stéphane Fallu, his roommate of the time, forced him to get on stage with a diabolical trick, telling him: "T'es pas game" (You’re not game).
Franky was noticed by Juste Pour Rire and performed as part of a Gala hosted by Franck Dubosc and Stéphane Rousseau. He won the Just for Laughs Discovery Award and was awarded a $ 5,000 scholarship. In 2016, he went on tour with the comedian Julien Tremblay, and the pair will continue touring together until 2018.
