Mornings and humor: the battle of laughter

The mornings are distinguished by a plurality of chronicles: news, economy, culture, well-being… And humor! This is not new, to wake up the listeners, the radios rely on comedians, who can lighten a sometimes heavy news and diversify the program schedule.

In this fall 2022, the humorous offer is more bloated than ever. Even television is getting involved with “Télé-Matin” which now hosts humor chronicles on its set. A direct consequence of the particularly heavy news of recent months? Still, the Jean Jaurès Institute points to a worrying “information fatigue” felt by a majority of French people.

Humor as a remedy in the face of too heavy information? It remains to sort through the myriad of comedians on the airwaves. “L’Obs” helps you make your choice.

6:40 a.m. to 6:55 a.m. – Early birds on France Inter or RTL

At 6:40 precisely, the day begins on RTL, with Cyprien Cini and his “News Surfing”in which he returns with humor to a news that ignites the web.

6:55 a.m., launch of hostilities on France Inter. Well, not exactly: it’s actually at 5:50 am that the radio broadcasts its first humorous program, but these are reruns. At 6:55 am, therefore, the slot is occupied by the post of comedian Daniel Morin, who has officiated on the first radio station in France for 22 years. He is replaced on Fridays by Frederick Sigrist who delivers a cinema column.
