Coluche (1944-1986)

Michel Colucci was an extremely popular comedian, in the French traditional graphic, often Rabelaisian and even scatological style; he founded the "Restaurants du Coeur" which distributes meals to the poor (60 million meals last year with 40,000 volunteers). Colucci adopted "Coluche" as a stage name at 26, when he began his entertainment career. He became known for his irreverent attitude towards politics and the "Establishment" and he incorporated this into much of his material.
His death in 1986 in a motorcycle accident provoked national grief.

journalists don\'t believe the lies of politicians, but they do repeat them - which is even worse!
