Just for Laughs Festival: Pari Rési for Math Duff

The madness of Mathieu Dufour is at the center of the appearance of Bell, Saturday evening, or is held by the 13,000 admirers of the humorist with the mane. After making himself known through social networks during the pandemic, the young comedian is now playing in the big leagues.

By way of opening, a double emerged on a platform on stage. At the same time, Mathieu Dufour made a surprise entrance to the floor before going up the aisle where he had to ask the security guards for help to get on stage, because steps had or had to be installed.

Moreover, when you know Mathieu Dufour, you suspect that he could not be satisfied with such a simple entry. He therefore asked the public to forget the ten minutes that provided to happen to go backstage and redo an entrance of a big star.

Presented by Justin Morissette, Math Duff finally arrived on top of a platform, accompanied by pyrotechnics, dressed in a a play sequined and perched on boots with huge stiletto heels.

Mathieu Dufour told different anecdotes in connection with shows he saw at the Bell Center, such as the time he had to come back to see Celine Dion the next day, not remembering the show he had seen the day before because of an excess of alcohol and polpettes.

As the comedian is in improvisation mode on stage, the show is uneven and disjointed, between two really hilarious and effective flashes.

Pier-Luc Funk then arrived on stage, activated by the same boots with much too high heels as Mathieu Dufour. The two engaged in a wacky imitation of Marie-Mai on the song Snake. Pier-Luc’s boots ended up in the public.


The evening was captured by Netflix, which offered a 60-minute digest at a later date, plus the mechanics of the filming sometimes broke the rhythm of the show a little.

Mathieu Dufour then remembered the period when he was in the Cadets. “I was never a male, but once they wanted to go paintball. I was so bad that I was the laughingstock of my team. I hated everything. The Game ended when he emptied his magazine into the back of a guy he thought was from the opposing team, but was actually… the club’s photographer! »

The COVID artist of the year at the 2021 Les Olivier Gala then spoke about his medieval at the age of 12. “It’s my sister’s favorite anecdote,” he said. In his head, Math Duff had created a Merlin-style character for himself, with special powers for the occasion, by taking remnants of customs found at home. “When I got to the camp parking lot, I started crying. All eyes turned to me. I laughed so much at myself, I finally stayed in the chalet all weekend doing the dishes.

Mathieu Dufour joins the incredible ability to react to the crowd with ease. Obviously, the public loves him and follows him in all his follies. Our cut-off time, he was starting to tell a few anecdotes about the experience of using marijuana, and more equally surreal stories were expected.
