The comedy L'os à moelle returns to the Artistic Théâtre until April 28 for its final dates. A comedy about comedian Pierre Dac, the story centers on the weekly newspaper "L'os à moelle", which he founded in 1938, at the dawn of the Second World War.

L'os à moelle, imagined and directed by Anne-Marie Larizini, returns to theArtistic Théâtre in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. The comedy is based on texts from the newspaper "L'os à moelle ", created by 20th-century French humorist Pierre Dac.

The stage features Emmanuelle Galabru, Michel Ouimet and Cédric Colas, in a simple but effective set, with the political humor of the "L'os à moelle " texts and partisan songs, reminding us that we are at the dawn of the Second World War. Anne-Marie Lanzini brings Pierre Dac back to life in a show that at times verges on the absurd, where the trio of comedians have no shortage of repartee.

"L'os à moelle", first published on May 13, 1938, was a weekly humoristic newspaper,the "official organ of the zany ". It was named after the humanist writer Rabelais, and his father, a butcher. Highly satirical and sometimes absurd, as it was completely out of step with the coming war, "L'os à moelle" concealed political criticism. After 109 highly successful issues, the paper ceased publication on June 7, 1940, as German troops closed in and the weekly was very anti-Hilterian.

The staff left Paris and Pierre Dac was arrested in 1941 while trying to reach London. Locked up again a few years later in Spain, he finally managed to reach London in 1943 and took to the radio, where he parodied fashionable songs, mocking the Vichy government and the Germans. Pierre Dac, ultimately as much a humorist as a Resistance fighter, enabled the French to laugh at "everything" in a context where laughter no longer had its place.

Anne-Marie Larizini 's fine texts plunge the audience into a political dimension, where laughter is a weapon.

L'os à moelle can be seen atArtistic Théatre until April 28 for its final dates!
