It’s never too late to get caught up in technology. At the invitation of ComediHa !, Yvon Deschamps launched his own YouTube channel last month, where he posts some of his most memorable monologues, songs and acts. On Saturday, in an interview with RDI Matin, this monument of humor, which has more than 50 years of career, explained that he wanted to make his work more known.
The comedian’s YouTube channel allows him in particular to place in context certain extracts already published by others on the platform, but too short according to him to be understood in the second degree.
Of course, it is very delicate because of the content, of what I was writing. My characters have said terrible things, but when we have the whole monologue, we understand why, he told journalist Anne-Andrée Daneau.
But if we take just 30 seconds off YouTube, sometimes it can be like: “eh, what is he saying!”
This YouTube channel also allows him to receive copyright.
Either way, it’s full of business on YouTube. It is also good to pick them up on a channel, so that we have small rights in addition, that we did not have before.

ComediHa! Also broadcasts on its paid online platform a dozen recordings of its shows and monologues, from the 1970s to today.
desire to express things, Yvon Deschamps does not intend to return on stage.
If I go on a stage, it’s because it’s a friend of mine who is doing a show and who put a chair next to me for me to look at him, he said with a laugh.
He is taking advantage of his retirement to continue working with young people in the Center-Sud district with the Yvon Deschamps Center-Sud Foundation, which sends 500 children to day camps every year. She will also be holding an online auction from June 11 to 20, which includes unique prizes, such as 30 minutes of conversation with Ginette Reno on Zoom, Véronique Cloutier’s ball gown, a sweater signed by Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. or
