What began as a birthday gift to himself on February 29, 2012 has turned into a two-year love affair with his Quebec fans. Three new dates have just been added to the sold out, bilingual, You’re Gonna Rire show and five more of the all-French En Français SVP! show that is currently touring across the province. As well, the limited-run Illegal English Edition returns for 2 shows. These ten additional shows at the Olympia Theatre are on sale now and additional tour dates will be added shortly. That’s 20,000 more chances to rire out loud.

Illegal English Edition: Friday, January 30, & Friday, Feb. 14, 

En Français SVP: Friday, February 21, Saturday February 22, and Thursday, April 24, Friday April 25 and Saturday, April 26
