Les Stones du cirque et de l’humour, ce sont les précurseurs du comique et du cirque moderne du Québec des années 70…
 
Une décennie plus tôt, le Québec sortait de sa « grande noirceur » et commençait sa « révolution Tranquille »…
 
En comédie il y avait du variété, du cabaret, du théâtre et de la télé...
Vinrent ensuite, sur scène, les formations comiques, comme : les Jérolas (Jean Lapointe et Jérôme Lemay), les Cyniques (groupe universitaire), Jean-Guy Moreau et Claude Landré (imitateurs), Sol le clown (Marc Favreau), Clémence Desrochers et Yvon Deschamps (monologuistes) et  l’Ostie de show spectacle mythique et locomotive du début des temps modernes…
 
Les Frères Brosse, (Théâtre débile) voient le jour débuts 70', les Mimes Électriques (Bruiteurs-comique, décédés), les Carcasses (écran + scène), les Foubracs (cirque et scène) et Paul et Paul (trio), emboîtent le pas… En même temps que des amuseurs publiques, Les Clowns (Chatouille & Chocolat) des jongleurs et des acrobates, qui innovent dans le fascinant  monde du Cirque sans animaux… Et de la contre-culture, Québécoise !
 
Le 8 septembre, les Stones du cirque et de l’humour (Ou le retour de nos comiques) seront sur la scène et dans la salle du Club Soda de Montréal. C’est la toute première fois, en 50 ans, que toutes ces formations se retrouvent sur la même scène, en même temps un soir seulement…
 
Venez prendre le temps de découvrir, ces précurseurs de l’Humour Québécois, des années 70', bien avant l’industrie de l’humour, actuelle !
 
Le Livret de la soirée est écrit par Pierre Huet et France Castel assurera l'animation du Spectacle.

BEYRIES is a singer-songwriter and self-taught musician born in Montreal. She released her debut record Landing in February 2017. In its first week, Landing quickly shot to #1 on the overall album sales charts in her home province of Quebec and #7 in overall album sales in Canada. La Presse’s Émilie Côté has described her music, saying that a peaceful strength springs from her voice and comforting melodies. The result is soft and intense music that is also touching and powerful. Her songs are without pretension, and tend to bring people together with their universal and timeless themes. Her music is captivating and takes us back to what is essential: the heart.
