Marcel Lucont Etc: A Chat Show (Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

Monsieur Lucont saunters on-stage sans shoes and glass of vin rouge in hand. He is charmingly arrogant, shamelessly plugging his book and boasting of the aphrodisiacal qualities his voice possesses. Whether this is true remains to be seen. However, the delectable ‘Frenchman’ certainly works his magic on the audience and his ‘chat show’ fellow comedian guests, asking them a series of bizarre questions with the help of the audience, and offending with such guile they don’t realise what’s happening. He even has a bell to ring a warning in the event of boredom. The combination of egotism and deadpan humour accompanied by original poetry and song make for a hilarious combination. Vive la France!

Underbelly, 4 – 28 Aug (not 15), 9.20pm (10.20pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp113.
