MARCEL LUCONT, flâneur, raconteur and bon-viveur is the self confessed greatest UK-based French comedian around. Just ask him and he’ll be sure to tell you! An unforgettably sardonic character creation, performed by the uber talented Alexis Dubus, Marcel has toured the world with his dry wit, bawdy chansons and exquisite sex poetry.
Often seen with a glass of wine in hand and whiff of nonchalance pervading the air, his dry wit and mocking scorn of the English has brought him international acclaim, TV appearances on Sky Atlantic‘s Set List, and BBC Three’s Live At The Electric, and the publication of his book: What We French Think Of You British … And Where You Are Going Wrong – a collection of observations gleaned from Marcel’s time spent in the UK.
Winner of the Buxton Fringe Award 2009 for Best Comedy Individual and the Three Weeks Editors’ Choice Award at Edinburgh 2008, Marcel Lucaont was also named the best sketch, character or improv act in the 2015 Chortle Awards, a year after being nominated in the same category. He currently resides in London – for as long as he can put up with your moaning…
“Fresh, accessible and hilarious”
