Antoni Remillard

With a charisma of a first class actor, Antoni Remillard distinguishes himself by his comical and dramatic acting. These qualities allow him to bring the audience to experience delirium and discomfort with confidence. A harmless provocateur, he tackles delicate subjects with sensitivity. Taboo subjects or banal anecdotes, his approach is thoughtful, because after all, he is passionate about exploring the human, society and the absurdities that envelop them. We understand that with Antoni, everything is conducive to the joke.

Jessica Chartrand

With her wry humor, striking honesty and refreshing angles, Jessica knows how to surprise where you least expect it.

Jessica shares the stage with her turtleneck and takes on the weekly challenge of taking out her garbage by herself. Don’t be fooled by her store-bought germaine looks, her sharp humor won’t leave you wanting more.

Mario Jean

Mario Jean is back in force and in great shape, with a desire to renew himself, to progress and to surprise again. His unique style, versatile and unifying, allows him to address themes that people recognize themselves in, while surprising them. Some of Aller de l’avant’s favorite topics include intelligence and human stupidity, the joys and sorrows of growing old, overconsumption, television and advertising, his children still at home…

Michel Roy

Similar to the Canadian geese, Michel Roy makes his bi-annual migration to stand-up! For more than 20 years, he has set up shop in St. Boniface, in St. Pierre, in the basement of the church in St. Georges, depending on his mood and who is willing to pay him a meal. His travels have brought him to share his hilarious humor at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Rendez-vous de la Francophonie and the Rire Zone. His mom thinks he is “pretty funny”!

Luc LeBlanc

Luc LeBlanc was born in McKendrick, New Brunswick. Comedian, humorist and host, he has been working for 30 years. His talent and passion have allowed him to travel throughout Canada and internationally. Well rooted in Acadia, he is also the general and artistic director of Le Pays de la Sagouine, where he has played the role of Pumpkin for 25 years.
