    Comedian, actor, director, writer, producer, sketch performer, stand up, playwright... Stuart is a comedy polymath, with a style of distinctively structured surrealism all of his own.

    He has written and performed eight full length comedy shows so far, and continues to be a lynchpin of the alternative comedy scene.

    The creation of English character comedian Alexis Dubus, Marcel Lucont is France’s premier flaneur, raconteur, bon-viveur, misanthropist and lover, whose act involves, in his own words, “dry wit, bawdy chansons and exquisite sex poetry”.

    Performing as Marcel, Alexis has won several comedy awards, and appeared on TV shows around the world, generally pouring scorn on anyone who isn’t, well, him.

First 4 were great .....

The first 4 were great. Alexis Dubus was fabulous. Lots of genuine laugh out loud moments. However I personally hated the 5th comedian. When he started talking about 'mongs' I flinched. After about the 5th or 6th reference I stopped listening. You may call me a snowflake or too sensitive but there is really no excuse in 2019 to be using this language. Not amused. Download the first 4 but leave off Phil Nichol if you have a soul.

Comedic reief

Really enjoyed this comic, his humour really resonated with me and was thoroughly enjoyable. Will seek him out in future.
