“Clearly the revealed star of this byeit seems that the match star of this 54e edition – produced by Simon-Olivier Fecteau and Guillaume Lespérance – goes to Pierre-Yves Roy-Desmarais. The 28-year-old comedian, who delivered a comedic song during the two bye precedents, was at his first presence within the central core of actors.

Internet users hailed his interpretations of comedian impersonator Stéphane Rousseau in the series STATfrom the eccentric host ofOD Jay Du Temple (special mention to the famous camisole that had been knitted by Safia Nolin!), by Sébastien Delorme in the series Indefensible (renamed entrenched) and the seductive Ovila Pronovost in the updated version of Daughters of Calebafter censorship this year by the Netflix platform.

“Clearly the revealed star of this bye! What versatility, congratulations!” wrote Maggie, an Internet user.

Justin Trudeau and Gregory Charles

One of the sketches that seems to have won unanimous support from the general public is the one in which Simon-Olivier Fecteau and Normand Brathwaite impersonated Justin Trudeau and Gregory Charles on the piano, singing songs that were totally inappropriate in various situations and various places around the world. A nod to their singing session in London during Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral week. “That, I laughed very hard!”, took the time to write Guy A. Lepage.

Emilie Bordeleau, entrenched and the vaper from Tulum

Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse, 31, confessed during the show Making-of feeling extra pressure for not having had any humor training. “In the making-of from bye, I heard you say that it stressed you, because you have no training, wrote a surfer nicknamed readings of Kathia. Let me tell you, you clearly don’t need it! I loved every one of your impersonations…”

The public particularly praised her interpretation of Émilie Bordeleau, the character of Anne-Élisabeth Bossé in entrenched and the famous vapoteuse of Tulum in the plane of Top Gun (renamed Top Connes). “You were truly excellent!!! Julie Snyder and Émilie Bordeleau among others: perfect!”, shared a viewer in Instagram.

The return of Rogatien and a surprising Rambo

Patrick Huard, 54, delighted his admirers by putting on the legendary cap of Rogatien, his popular character as a taxi driver who doesn’t have his tongue in his pocket, in one of the most mentioned numbers on the networks.

This return also made possible an appearance that we first believed to be very real, that of Rambo Gauthier interpreted by Marc-André Grondin (we had to watch the show Making-of to get to the bottom of it!). “I thought it was true for a while and I don’t know what made me doubt it was you, wrote a certain ig_louly. And I got the confirmation afterwards, behind the scenes. It’s crazy, it’s the best makeup.

A nice special mention that must have surprised Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse who was unaware that her lover would make an appearance in the bye.

Patrick Huard as Éric Duhaime also caused a lot of reaction. The latter even posted a screenshot of the character played by Huard on Twitter asking his followers “Do you think he looks like me? Yes? Nope?” The comments that followed are, shall we say, not always eloquent.

Hockey Canada’s escapades

Guylaine Tremblay has repeatedly been praised for her character as a hockey player’s mother, getting angry with a representative of Hockey Canada over the fund dedicated to settlement payments aimed at silencing victims of harassment and rape by players. “Heart stroke […] for Guylaine Tremblay as a mother who breaks her mark, ”wrote Alain Leclerc.

The 62-year-old actress also resumed her imitation of Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge who came to spoil the last words of the dying queen in her bed.

A bearded man without a beard

Last but not least, the comedian François Bellefeuille, pulled off quite a bang by completely shaving off his famous beard to very effectively personify the host of the Upside-down world, Stephan Bureau. “The bearded man no beard, we really liked it here!” Wrote an admirer. The 46-year-old comedian looks like the host like two drops of water without his big salt-and-pepper beard! The skit on the working children (and the baby) also pleased the spectators.
