This episode was drafted rather a long while ago, and recorded before the Juste Pour Rire festival took place in July, but took a while longer than we expected to be finished, so things are a little out of date now. Mind you, they would have been in the end, anyway, so that will teach me to talk about time-sensitive material, eh?
I also decided I had to record it while I was sick with a miserable summer cold, and I didn't realize how terrible my breathing was until I listened to the final edit of the episode. I had to record standing up to avoid sounding like I was going to suffocate any minute, so really, it could have been worse.
However, to avoid turning my podcast into a toaster, I'm going to post the episode anyway, and hope that you can find something in it of value. And in the spirit of Neil Gorman's talk, I tried something different in this episode.

Burl the Bubble Guy -- seriously, click on the link to watch his video.
There are a lot of links for Arturo Brachetti on YouTube, but this one is a pretty classic routine. I once saw Arturo Brachetti on the street outside the Galeries Lafayette in Paris and was too star-struck to approach him -- he was wearing a fabulous silver jacket at the time.
I found a fascinating report on YouTube about magician Dani Lary that came from France3. And a lot of the numbers he created specifically for Le plus grand cabaret du monde can be found on YouTube as well -- start with this water number for example, which will give you a taste for Le plus grand cabaret du monde, or this one (which is a particular favorite of mine).
And of course, things wouldn't be complete without Shirley et Dino!
La fille du bas étage (Corrine is actually a really good singer, it's phenomenal what she does to sound so awful!)
And the official site of the film that started all this: Cabaret Paradis
