Franglish Comedy Festival: bilingual stand-up comedy in Méribel

January 08, 2024

Bilingual stand-up in Méribel!

From 29 January to 2 February 2024, French and English comedians will be cracking up the stages in Méribel. After skiing, head to the auditorium and bars for hilarious, intimate, multilingual stand-up shows.  It’s an unmissable event with laughs guaranteed!



Franglish in a nutshell:

Bringing together French comedians who speak English and English comedians who speak French? That’s the idea behind the Franglish Comedy Festival, an event born of collaboration between the Méribel Tourist Office and the agency Piste Productions.

For your enjoyment, Méribel welcomes 9 renowned artists from the international comedy scene, to make you laugh after your days on the slopes. A true linguistic and cultural mosaic!

This year’s event, dubbed “American stand-up“, draws its inspiration from the New York clubs of the 1950s. By combining direct interaction and improvisation in response to audience reactions, this style provides an authentic experience of exchange with the public. The artists will also be challenged to create a show in their own language…

Who will you see? English, American, French and Irish! We’re talking about the crème de la crème here, winners of prestigious awards, headliners on the most prestigious stages, regulars on television screens…

Et Voila ! Here they are, your comedy dream team : Jérémy Charbonnel, Nick Doody, Marcus Brigstocke, Tatty Macleod, Andrew Maxwell, Rachel Parris, Rémi Marceau, Tania Dutel et Sebastian Marx. 

So, be sure to be there, 29 January to 2 February 2024 from 8-11pm, for the gala shows at the Auditorium and for after ski in the bars of Méribel.



Message from the co-producer of Franglish: 



“Stand-up has had a strong tradition in Méribel for over 20 years and it’s important to celebrate it. We decided to organise this event because I believe that comedians are the most lucid commentators on our times. And in these special times, we need lucidity. And above all, a good laugh.”

Richard Lett, director of the agency Piste Productions
