Gad Elmaleh is a world-renown Moroccan-French comedian. Regarded as the French Ben Stiller and the Jerry Seinfeld of French comedy, he is arguably the biggest and most loved comedic star in France. In 2006, he was awarded the "Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres" by France's Minister of Culture and was voted "The Funniest Person in France." Shortly thereafter, he followed up with his fifth one man show "Papa est en Haut" which premiered at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal as well as to sold out audiences in Miami, Los Angeles and The Beacon Theater in New York City.

In December of 2007, Gad made history when he sold out the prestigious L'Olympia (Paris' Carnegie Hall) in Paris for seven consecutive weeks, a task never before achieved. Immediately after his stunt at the Olympia, Gad performed for another seven sold out weeks at Le Palais des Sports. Most recently, Gad starred in the Academy Award winning Woody Allen film "Midnight in Paris," as well as the Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson film "The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn."

As few artists stray from English at the Keswick Theatre, this is a must-see event and a rare opportunity to witness a live, authentic French performance. Don't be intimidated! Stop by and seize this amazing chance to practice your French and have a good laugh!!
