ComediHa!: a well-cooked hilarious sex, drugs and rock and roll by Normand Brathwaite

Throughout his career, he has never been afraid to pay the head of others, more like the title of the first consenting victim of the series of the Grands bien-cuits of ComediHa! Fest-Québec, Normand Brathwaite has proven that he can also take the worst bullshit with a smile.

However, nothing was spared him, Monday evening, at the Capitole Theater, his life of sex, drugs, alcohol and rock and roll providing ample material for his one-night tormentors to send him in the face of greens and not ripe .

Five days of his 64and birthday, it was the party of the one who had long been without pity for his Turkish heads at chilli pepper.

The host Laurent Paquin was the first to pay the bill, he who had decided to sum up the career of Brathwaite from the youth show pumpkin pop to TV comedy rough viewby the way At Denise’swhere his Haitian accent was so bad it was cultural appropriation, he taunted.

Laurent Paquin hosted the evening.

It is impossible to summarize all the subjects covered by the guests/friends of Normand Brathwaite. Obviously, his arrest on the Jacques-Cartier Bridge for drunk driving, his habit of showing his buttocks on stage and his sometimes gruff appearance in everyday life have been mentioned many times, as has his omnipresence on screen. .

“The one who opened all the doors for the people of my community, but who kept all the keys,” said Richardson Zéphyr on this subject.

We also knew that he liked women and that he had many conquests. Maxim Martin, however, released the gossip of the evening by telling that his friend is waiting for love with Belgazou in an allegorical float during a parade of the Carnival of Quebec.

“It was in a carriage,” Normand Brathwaite corrected him later, in general hilarity, without denying the anecdote.

Among the roasters, there are also expected names such as Yves P. Pelletier, Alex Perron, Réal Béland as well as the drag queen Mona de Grenoble.

Even if she is an old friend of Normand Brathwaite, the presence of Luce Dufault clashed among all his pros of humor. Or, despite being the newbie to the band, the singer did just fine.

Luce Dufault did well.

She was funny and just pungent enough in a monologue where she enjoyed reminding Brathwaite of the time he said on TV that a radio manager wouldn’t play his songs because she didn’t. was “not potentially fuckable”.

Luce Dufault’s attraction to men then occupied a good part of Normand Brathwaite’s response, who did not hide, once again, under the risores, his crush on the one who had a version reworked in scotch parties.

It was a lot of intimate details, moreover it was also frankly hilarious, a good kick-off for the Grands bien-cuits which continues, Tuesday evening, with Michel Barrette in the seat of the roast and Gildor Roy at the animation .
