Has comedy and humor finally become international between French-speaking countries? It is on this theme in part that the team has produced this humoristic but serious documentary!

Coming from all over the French-speaking world (Quebec, Italy, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Algeria, Morocco), big names such as Martin Matte, Véronic Dicaire, Boucar Diouf, Anthony Kavanagh, but also Gad Elmaleh, Jamel Debbouze, Patrick Timsit, Yann Lambiel, Pascal Légitimus and several others offer testimonies we are not accustomed to. The remarks are commented by the Quebec comedy historian, Robert Aird. The comedians explain their aspirations and motivations in considering an international career, laughter and its benefits from a social and cultural point of view, their arrival in a foreign country, the adaptation they must face, and ultimately the confrontation with their new audience.

Each time, action shots are used to illustrate their thoughts and better understand the universe in which they live on stage.
