Artistically, Florence Foresti knows what she wants, and has never deviated from her guideline. Thursday, September 15, the famous humorist was invited to the program En Aparté, on the occasion of the release of Désordre, a series signed Canal +, in which she plays her own role.
Questioned by the soft voice of Nathalie Levy, Florence Foresti reviewed her career. From her beginnings in 2000 with Les Taupes Modèles, to her emblematic show Motherfucker, then in recent years, Florence Foresti has remained one of the most emblematic comedians.
This hard-held place has earned Florence Foresti several moments of doubt, at certain key moments in her life and career. At the time, his shows were for people who were similar to him: single and childless. Only here, from a carefree single life Florence Foresti passed to that of a mother.
Florence Foresti: “We were crossed by this thought that we were going to lose this young, single and childless audience”
Inevitably, this change greatly influenced her artistic choices: “I arrived with this desire, this urgency, to talk about pregnancy and motherhood”, she recalled in En Aparté.
This desire was not easy to put into action for Florence Foresti, due to several fears and reluctance on both sides: “My producers and I were afraid of losing part of the public. At the beginning, the public was my age, they were young people. We were crossed by this thought that we were going to lose this young, single and childless audience”, recalled the new companion of a certain Alexandre.
It is with the back of the hand that Florence Foresti and her team swayed this apprehension. Thanks to a phrase that she says has become her leitmotif: “I’ve aged, I’m not going to lie to them, and those who want to will grow old with me. If I lose the young people, too bad”, she said. declared.

On Canal +, Florence Foresti spoke of the importance she attached to her authenticity. The renowned comedian has always refused to be someone she is not during her one-woman shows: “I’m not going to lie and try to put on a show for a thirty-year-old girl, I I’m almost fifty. So I talk about what I know, what I live, and then who loves me follows me,” she continued.
The artist then wanted to make an ode to old age, which she chose to take the side of: “It’s not just young people who make the world, there are also fifty-somethings, seniors, etc. There are people who want to laugh and who may not recognize themselves in the humor of the very young,” she said.
Florence Forest’s choices are clear and her target well defined, regardless of the dissatisfaction: “I decided to take this side and stay myself, even if it means seeming old-fashioned at one point in my career, I I don’t give a fuck. What I want is to be faithful to what I say and to who I am”, she finished.
