New York City
One of France’s most popular comedians, Gad Elmaleh rarely performs in English — until now. The Moroccan-born actor and comedian was voted “Funniest Person” in France in 2006 and made history in 2007 when he sold out the prestigious L’Olympia in Paris for seven consecutive weeks. Most recently, he appeared on Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” starred in the Academy Award–winning Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris as well as The Adventures of Tintin and Priceless. His new show, “Oh My Gad,” will be performed in English.
