“Céline Dion poses nude: everyone flips out. I take out the garbage nude, they call the police. Life isn’t fair.”
Truly a comic genius, Simon-Olivier launched his career at age 12 when he received the video camera with which he shot his first shorts. Next came a series of successful comedy projects such as Les Chick’n Swell, En audition avec Simon, and Ces gars-là. In 2016, Simon was behind the camera for the prestigious Bye Bye year-end TV show, for which he received a Gémeau Award for best direction. He’ll be directing the show again in 2017.
