My woman takes the opportunity to get away with my best friend, who is her lover and then becomes my ex-best friend.

The Nature Glanders, it’s the story of a true friendship… between a total moron and a big jerk… that deploy treasures of energy to get… to nothing!

28 December: IDEM ET PAPAREIL:

The characters will take us at high speed in a whirlwind of comical situations in our daily lives. From withdrawal of license on the suspension of benefits unemployment, to a “banal” game of Scrabble, they always have the words to laugh, whether they are rather acidic or downright smashing. And then there are the men! The crux of the matter… As evidenced by a tasty parade of characters who have nothing to do with the “top” glossy magazines: “They have all the faults, but we can’t do without them!”


More effective than a capsule, better syrup, cheaper than a vaccine, the sketch show of the two masters of ridiculousness. Their inspirations: cinema, sports, the Belgian surrealism, improvised skidding and all that, of course, in rhythm and choreographed movements. But beware, like every medicine, this show includes some side effects. Sensitive spleens, keep out!
