Bruno Blanchett has always been mocked Anne-Marie Losec – particularly in “Les videos du pubic” – in his new humorous series “Le Mélancolite”, which contains moments as silly as they are funny.
The host and producer somehow take the elevator back to him by ringing his vengeful clock. It sets off a “brown alarm” to “destroy” Blanchett who returns home to save his old friend Jay Goodwin, who suffers from “the blues”…a severe crisis of nostalgia.
Let’s say it’s pure Bruno Blanchett who again offers silly and crazy humor, as in the good old days of “Apocalypse at Seven” or “The Studio” or “N” Tune Your Dryer. The fans of the first hour will be defeated again, and the others will be angry again.
So Jay Goodwin barricaded himself at home and constantly watches old VHS for the sketches he filmed with Bruno. The latter, who has faced the plight of his companion from the beginning, has no choice and must urgently return from Thailand to help Guy. He then embarks on a journey with Gaye’s nephew, Vincent (rapper Foki) and his adopted daughter (Jade Barshey) with Guillen Tremblay. The point of this trip through Peel County is to show Jay how much we love him… To do so, Bruno collects testimonials from Gatineau to Gaspe.
We also find, with archival photos, such Bruno Blanchett characters as “Monsieur pas de cou”, “El Mimo”, the magic plumber, Gros gin or even Madame Totonski, to name only those who appeared in the first episodes that were made available to journalists.
For the series of 10 episodes of about ten minutes each, Bruno Blanchett, who wrote the scripts, also surrounds himself with Emmanuel Auger, Christian Beguin, Marc Labrich, Francis Reddy and Georges St-Pierre.
- The comedy series “Le Mélancolite” produced by Must Media and directed by Arnaud Bouquet, is available on ICI TOU.TV starting Wednesday, April 27.
