Michel Courtemanche (December 11, 1964 in Laval, Quebec, Canada - ) is a comedian and actor. He has drawn hundreds of thousands to his one-man shows in Quebec, France, Belgium & Switzerland.
His debut one-man show, A New Comic is Born, ran for more than five hundred performances and earned him two Felix nominations. His second, The New Adventures of Michel Courtemanche, filled theatres in both North America and Europe and spawned his second international hit video.
Courtemanche has internationally sold out enormous houses usually reserved for rock stars (although such shows are quite common place for comedians in Quebec). He has even inspired a popular one-of-a-kind hardcover comic book. He has starred in Qu├ęb├ęcois films La Nuit de Noces and Karmina 2, and on the Secret Adventures of Jules Verne television series, on the Sci Fi Channel (United States).
His style of comedy can be best summed up as mime, as he is most often seen interacting with invisible objects or even people. He is also particularly good at making remarkable grimaces.
