Mehdi Bousaidan, Comedy, from class to stage

About Mehdi Bousaidan

Native from Algeria, Mehdi Bousaidan didn’t stop since his graduation from l’École nationale de l’humour. Finalist of the show En route vers mon premier gala in 2014, he since presented two solo shows during the Zoofest. We can also see him in television shows at Radio-Canada and VRAK. Inspired by actuality and his own reflexions, Mehdi uses difficult themes on stage to make his public laugh, turning every show into collective therapy.

Details of the project

With his first one-man show, Demain, Mehdi shows that his ambition are more than laugh. Original, cultivated, charismatic, he uses themes like gun’s control and prison system, but also tell numerous personnal anecdotes. Improvisation master, he adapts to every public making every performance unique.
