Why See Gad Elmaleh?

Widely dubbed "The French Jerry Seinfeld", Gad is a household name in his native Gaul - he has played at a few select American venues in recent years, but 2017 marks a huge milestone; he is about to embark on his first US-wide tour! Praised for his combination of quick-fire observational comedy and physicality, he has opted to leave sure-fire success behind in France and start over in America - from scratch. Realizing that merely translating jokes from French to English wouldn't be enough, his repertoire has exploded into sharp and witty observations about his move to New York City, American culture and the trials of learning English.

Riffing on the cultural differences and aburdities he has encountered since emigrating in 2015, Gad can turn the most innocuous misunderstanding into belly laughs, and has earned him the respect of his peers, including one Jerry Seinfeld and Sarah Silverman.
