Gala des Olivier should have been renamed: “Down with my uncle!”

During Sunday’s party, we celebrated with a festival of jokes about “old men,” all tossed in the same basket, as if they were all confused and out of touch, as if everything done before millennials came to Earth was going to be trashed.

Gala des Olivier should have been renamed: “Get off my uncle!”

old, sticks

It’s strange: for the new generation, all forms of discrimination should be prohibited with one exception: discrimination against the elderly.

gender discrimination ? Naughty. racism? Horrible. But ageism? No problem !

During the comedy party hosted by Kathryn Levac (33), we were treated to:

A dirty tribute to a giant of humor (died at 87).

– a whole number of mockery of “old” comedians.

– jokes about Luis José being “too old” (he’s 46!), Guy Nantel not being “exhaustive” enough (he’s 55), and Christian Begin not being fast enough (he’s 60).

At one recital, Virginie Fortin, 36, and Arnaud-Soleil, 33, disguised as Pat and Matt, two big, unfashionable colonists, sang, “Humor was better than before, when we were only eight white men, when we were fighting with jokes We can only say: Come hereWe’re kidding! “.

  • Don’t miss Patrick Delisle Crevier’s column at Mic Every day on waves :

What interested me most from the song was the following: “We didn’t apologize for getting our hands dirty, there were no victims, just the lucky ones.” Hmmm. So the new generation of comedians treat women really well? Haha, this is the best joke of the evening!

As if sang these primitive stereotypes about “humor from before,” as if for forgiveness, a group of children dressed as Marie-Lise Pilot, Daniel Lemaire, Mario Jean, Claude Meunier, Soul, Michel Barrett, and Pierre Brassard sang: “Imagination with our legendary characters.” Hey boy, ten big seconds to get to know those who “paved the way.”

Even Danny Turcotte, though he was Canadian on the radio, tweeted: “It seems that the new generation of comedians’ contempt for aging is completely generalized!”

But the biggest annoyance of this evening is the hungry and anemic tribute to Jean Lapointe. All in all, it took 30 seconds…to get to the commercial break. Music over the black and white photos, there is no narrative to call out the highlights of the comedian’s career. What an insult to have such a great artist swept under the rug!

Even MC Gilles, also a Canadian radio handyman, tweeted with a bit of sarcasm: “Did you miss honoring Jean Lapointe? My damn habit is blinking too…”

Want to know the best? Olivier Guimond was a great friend of Jean Lapointe. Who would have thought that one day a party named after the first would ignore the memory of the second?

Desert ahead of them

The party organizers probably remember that Olivier Gimond was born on May 21, 1914.

What an irony: we have a party and hand out figurines named after a comedian born 109 years ago, but we act as if only comedians born after 1990 rush!
