This one woman show, the 49-year-old comedian christened it Renovated. “Reconditioned is what has been repaired and restored,” she explains. There is the idea of making something new with something old. I’m telling the public that they will find the same Chollet, but that it will be brand new! »
And behind this mockery, this title translates the artist’s optimism. “I think the word ‘refurbished’ is full of hope,” she explains. Refurbished is an organic approach, a new way of consuming. Today, everything has been refurbished and I think it’s great. »
Laughter and songs
On stage, Chollet’s signature does not change. Surrounded by her musicians, the actress puts into her sketches and her stand-up passages with songs. “That’s my artistic line! When people ask me if I’m a comedian or a singer, I answer that I’m a singer, ”she laughs.
“When I started, when I sang on the street or in bars, I couldn’t help but make jokes, and the public liked it,” she recalls. I think I have this comic base in me, this clownish nature that always comes back. »
But that does not mean that the actress does not know how to change register. “I know and can do something else, make the viewer go from laughing to tears,” she says. At certain points in my show, I like to turn the situation around and completely turn the mood around. »
When she’s not singing, Christelle Chollet brings her characters to life. In this show, the public will especially deal with an influencer, a DJ, a love coach, a music teacher or even a sexual predator.
“The predator is in the custody of the police and defends herself for what she has done,” explains the actress. and as we one day discover what they have done. “
In this gallery, only one character is male: a bull. “The idea got me while I was watching my dog, who himself saw me live, the comedian remembers. So I put myself in the place of a bull who observes human life and asks himself a lot of questions. »
All of these ideas form an explosive cocktail that delights its creator: “I’m very happy with this show, very proud.”
