The death of his father had dramatic consequences for him. After the death of Jean Yanne, great master of humor and self-mockery, his son Jean-Christophe lived a very complicated childhood. Its story, revealed by the weekly newspaper Ici Paris on September 1, was extremely difficult to take.

Jean-Christophe is therefore an orphan, at only 18 years old. A life that could not be more complicated when everything was reaching out to him …
