About Gad Elmaleh

Gad Elmaleh: The Moroccan-Canadian Comedian Who Conquered the World

Gad Elmaleh was born on April 19, 1971, in Casablanca, Morocco. He grew up in a Jewish family and was exposed to different cultures and languages from an early age. His father was a mime artist and his mother was a painter, which influenced his artistic inclinations.

Elmaleh moved to Montreal, Canada, in 1988 to study political science at the University of Montreal. However, he soon realized that his true passion was comedy. He started performing stand-up comedy in French in small clubs in Montreal and quickly gained a following.

In 1997, Elmaleh moved to Paris, France, to pursue his comedy career. He became a sensation in the French-speaking world, selling out theaters and releasing several successful comedy albums and DVDs. He also appeared in French films and TV shows, including the hit movie "La Vérité si je mens!".

Elmaleh's success in France led to international recognition. He performed in English for the first time in 2006 in New York City and received rave reviews. He went on to perform in English in London, Los Angeles, and other cities around the world.

Elmaleh's comedy is known for its observational humor and cultural commentary. He often pokes fun at the differences between French and American cultures, as well as the quirks of everyday life. He has been compared to Jerry Seinfeld and Woody Allen for his style of comedy.

In addition to his comedy career, Elmaleh has also acted in films and TV shows. He starred in the French film "Coco" in 2009 and the American film "The Adventures of Tintin" in 2011. He also appeared in the Netflix series "Huge in France" in 2019.

Elmaleh's success has not been without controversy. In 2017, he was accused of plagiarizing jokes from other comedians. He apologized and stopped performing the material in question.

Despite the controversy, Elmaleh remains one of the most successful comedians in the world. He has sold out theaters in Europe, North America, and Asia, and has won numerous awards for his comedy and acting. He continues to tour and perform, bringing laughter to audiences around the world.
