Marcel Lucont: Les Enfants Terribles - A Game Show For Awful Children

Marcel Lucont, the UK’s favourite French comedian, presents a wild family gameshow, in which kids get to be pests, politicians and pétomanes to be crowned the most awful child. See what happens when international insouciance meets infantile exuberance.

A big hit at Edinburgh Fringe and many other festivals, the multi-award-winning comic channels his acerbic humour and quickfire wit into a series of tasks for the younger generation, which is every bit as entertaining for adults as it is for children.

Marcel Lucont has toured the world over the past 15 years, putting on critically-acclaimed shows at Melbourne Comedy Festival, New Zealand Comedy Festival, Cape Town Fringe and playing shows all across Europe, Scandinavia, the USA and Asia.

He has won the Fringe World Award for Best Comedy Show, the Amused Moose Award for Best Comedy Show at Edinburgh Fringe and was named as one of the Top 10 Edinburgh Fringe comedy shows by The Daily Telegraph. 

As seen on Comedy Central At The Comedy Store, Set List (Sky Atlantic), The John Bishop Show (BBC1), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC3) and Live At The Electric (BBC3).
