After announcing that he would never return to stage, Yvonne Deschamps is now considering lecturing.
“It would only be for the sake of having a conversation with a small audience,” he said magazine 85-year-old comedian, retired for ten years.
Last October, in an interview to talk about a hypothetical presentation of his birthday, Yvonne Deschamps was categorical: The stage was no longer lacking. After giving his last shows a decade ago, he said it took a good two years to “get rid” of the adrenaline that came with performing in front of a crowd.
But here, six months later, the comedian tweaked his speech a little. In an interview with Newspaper To talk about a new project with ComediHa! – On a file to read on Saturday in his Weekend Book – Yvonne Deschamps himself said he would like to return to the theater … to lecture about his life.
“I have reached this age … (laughs) It would just be flash From my life, he said. You wake up, you are 85 years old. It finished in 85 minutes. It is something! I would like to talk about funny cases, but also horrific cases. ”
However, the legendary monologue does not intend to reintroduce a new comedy show. He bluntly said, “It would be like the chains I’m laying on myself.” I don’t want to do a thing on this day. ”
You are no longer driving
At his age, Yvonne Deschamps states that he no longer wants to return to the road. “I never want to be on a snowy or icy road again. You’ve risked my life a thousand times.”
But when the idea of a conference thrown at him at Théâtre Maisonneuve, where he says he’s presented at least 600 times in his career, Yvonne Deschamps’ eye lights up. “It’s a good idea! I would like to tell people to come see me. Like Celine in Las Vegas! She’s global. Me, I hope I’m at least regional (laughs)!”
However, this desire to speak to the public should not be seen as a very tangible project. ComediHa! Currently working on a show about Deschamps’ work, Sylvain Barent Bedard mentions that the comedian has always been clear that he doesn’t want to return to the stage.
“I never insisted, nor did I intend to,” he says. I have always respected a man who was very much. “
