In a letter addressed to the author after his death, Christian Gonon defines his one-man show: “It will be everything I like best about you that I can say on a theatre stage.”

Pierre Desproges passed away 30 years ago, “carried away unbeknownst by a hungry crab gnawing away at his lung”. From the Petit Rapporteur where he started out in 1975 to the one-man shows of the final years, this writer of a unique, black humour proved that we can laugh about anything… but not necessarily with everyone. Ten years ago or so, Christian Gonon devoted a carte blanche performance to Desproges that has been revived on several occasions since, combining excerpts from Chroniques de la haine ordinaire [Chronicles of Ordinary Hatred], daily radio broadcasts on France Inter in 1986, La Minute nécessaire de Monsieur Cyclopède [The Necessary Moment of Monsieur Cyclopède] an irresistible series created in 1982 for France 3 television, as well as the book Vivons heureux en attendant la mort [Let’s Live Happily while Waiting for Death].
“Real sketches with real big chunks of bravura in them, all tied together by a lowness of inspiration that will fly below the belt of the shortest dwarf” announced Desproges for his 1986 show. In a letter addressed to the author after his death, Christian Gonon defines his one-man show: “It will be everything I like best about you that I can say on a theatre stage. A fraternal alliance. You would have come to the opening night and, with your cyclopean smile, you would have said ‘Desproges at the Comédie-Française… surprising, don’t you think?” And I would have replied: ‘No’”.

VIGIPIRATE

En raison du renforcement des mesures de sécurité dans le cadre du plan Vigipirate « Sécurité renforcée - risque attentat », nous vous demandons de vous présenter 30 minutes avant le début de la représentation afin de faciliter le contrôle.

Nous vous rappelons également qu’un seul sac (de type sac à main, petit sac à dos) par personne est admis dans l’enceinte des trois théâtres de la Comédie-Française. Tout spectateur se présentant muni d’autres sacs (sac de courses, bagage) ou objets encombrants, se verra interdire l’entrée des bâtiments.
