Gad Elmaleh is Huge in France

Which country has the best sense of humor? Comedian Gad Elmaleh would know, after leaving his stardom in France behind to make it in America. He sat down with Brut to talk about how he had to alter his jokes, besides just changing the language. 🇫🇷

    This is how he alters jokes (before his time in the US): he sees a joke in English, translates it to French, and then performs it as his own.

    I've met him...we had him at The Comedy Store in LA perform a series of shows in about 2007. Every person with a French accent and/or France heritage showed up within a 150 mile radius...shows sold out in hours. He is a seasoned performer...he is very clever...and he was very respectful and intrigued with The Comedy Store 's legacy. I was in charge of talent at The Store for 10 years...and I have seen thousands of comedians...he technically did well...just never made ME laugh...but either do many famous comedians.
