Everything has started out so well. To accommodate this 31st celebration of the theatres, private and public, the room of the Folies Bergère glow of a thousand lights. Alex Vizorek, dressed in a tuxedo without a bow tie, puts a few phrases to make you laugh the assembly. For Michael Field, and France Television, it is the “Hugh Grant of the poor, invested in the role after many disclaimers. “It is always nice to see these people left together for this evening of the right”, to avenge entry humorist belgian, before you confused with Jean-Marc Dumontet, president of the association of Molière, and Franck Riester, the minister of Culture. “At the same time, we know very well who is the most macroniste of the two…” The room relaxes. The pace is good, the valves work: 2h30 will pass quickly.
The “yellow vests” surprise guests
After a joke that mixes Bertold Brecht and the blowjobs of press officers, Vizorek is, however, cut off in his monologue and introduction. A score of “yellow vests” arrives on stage and takes the microphone to support the intermittents du spectacle and other precarious profession. Before addressing the “Molière of the dishonor” to Emmanuel Macron and his government for having cut in the budget of the culture. Little cold in the assembly, a very mixed bag. A few boos. Blanche Gardin, she is standing up and applauds. The “yellow vests” eventually leave the room, repeating in chorus the refrain: “Emmanuel Macron, we will look for you home with you.” A sequence is unexpected that will not be broadcast on television (the ceremony is slightly delayed): “They entered without permission, one has been taken hostage”, we explain later in France 2.

Despite a nice recovery by master of ceremony, the president Emmanuelle Devos has a lot of trouble to give lightness to the atmosphere. Even more than Ariane Mourier, hailed as female revelation for her role in The Banquet , a tribute to the “rebels” looking at Franck Riester in the eyes. The small spikes of any kind are not lacking. “Hey, white!”, greet Fary, who came to the reward Tasting of the Molière of the best comedy. “As much as in the France team football, it’s going to. But there…” The comedian seems to be the only black person in the room. Benjamin Lavernhe and François Breuer, disguised as seminarians, benefit from the Molière theatre for young audiences award (for M as Méliès ) for making jokes about pedophile priests. They were known more inspired. Alex Vizorek, him, threat of looping excerpts from a lecture of Francis Huster to interrupt the speech too long. Unfortunately, the actor of the dîner de cons will often make its appearance. By plagiarizing Gad Elmaleh (a shame), the “MC” even charges of return the Molière of the show humorous to Blanche Gardin, who had given herself in the past year. “Thanks to my speech of last year, I have seduced Louis CK!, explains the actress. So, I thank today Bradley Cooper, who is a great source of inspiration!” She went on, disillusioned: “in this time of loss, our business is more similar to emergency medicine”. Comedian another style, Mr. Fraize simply cross the plateau on several occasions to find out if he has won something.
