And when it's over, it's over. TV, I never dreamed! Besides, on Much Different, when it stopped, I said, 'Whoah!' and you can ask everybody in Paris. I never tried to go back there.” Today, the discreet man made it known in the media that he is grateful to be able to live from his passion and to have found a balance between stage and radio: “Life has offered me great roles. I love being on stage, it's really my thing. Besides, I always told my friends: 'You'll see, when I'm old, I'll be an actor!' I knew I would make it. Between radio and comedy, I found a good balance.” A nice life for one who served on the most beautiful radio stations in France.
