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.
