Coming to Australia for the very first time in his stellar career, to headline the Just For Laughs comedy festival, Gad Elmaleh, has become one of the most recognisable comedic talents in the world.

His steady rise to fame has been accentuated by a global tour, and the opportunity he had to support Jerry Seinfeld, at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.

In January 2017, he released his latest comedy special Gad Gone Wild, a Netflix special. Gad Gone Wild, rightfully showcases his notable multi-lingual ability, with the show being performed in both English and French, however these are not the only languages he speaks or performs in. He also speaks/performs in Arabic and Hebrew.

Moving from France to America changed his life, moving from being France’s most popular comic, to a global sensation. This career explosion was aided by a comic residency at Joe’s Pub in New York City, at which he sold out more than 50 nights of comedy.

Before his move to America, Gad Elmaleh was no average comedian. He has completed feats such as selling out the ever-prestigious Olympia theatre hall in Paris for seven consecutive weeks.

Gad Elmaleh has begun the successful transition from comedian to Hollywood actor. Among other film appearances, Gad has starred as “Ben Salaad” in the Steven Spielberg directed film The Adventures of Tintin and featured in Woody Allen’s film, Midnight in Paris, alongside Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams.
