I’m rounding the year off with a month at the Palais des Sports in Paris with standup comedian Gad Elmaleh. He’s celebrating 20 years of performing, and has put together a special show for the occasion, which includes a live band. I had the chance to put the band together, so I called up some of my favorite musicians and friends: Maxime Garoute, Mike Clinton and Eric Sauviat. The French-speaking readers probably know Gad already, but for everyone else you can get an idea of who he is by watching this episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s show “Comedians in car getting coffee”: Click here.
