Do you know many of the stars who would agree to reveal their salary? This is what promises Maripier Morin in the series “But why?” This fall in Z, whose new programming begins September 2.
Maripier Morin says that she is no longer the same woman since filming this series of six one-hour episodes, where she literally laid bare. The host invests in circles that challenge her, such as fitness and video games to better understand and judge them less. And she did not go halfway there. To address parenting, she agreed to freeze her eggs, an experience she came out of turned upside down. Other subjects: religion, nudity and video games. I will come back to this, since the series starts at the end of October.
Do you know what? I want to laugh a little. And I have the impression that Jean-François Mercier has the show this fall that will succeed, with topics as delicate as mental illness, disability and even death. For each Laughter program without taboos , the comedian spends three days in a cottage – it’s more than just for true nature – with guests of the public who are often the victims of prejudices. Mercier intends to prove that one can laugh at almost anything. For example, in the program on mental health, the facilitator receives a person who suffers from schizophrenia, another with a post-traumatic shock, another living with an anxiety panic disorder. From their testimonials, he writes comedy acts that he presents to the Golden Lion, with among the audience, his four or five guests from the chalet.
