André Sauvé with the OSM

Maison symphonique de Montréal

This concert is presented in French only

The critically acclaimed comedy show “André Sauvé avec l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal” was presented for the first time at the 2017 Just for Laughs Festival. Built on an out-of-the-ordinary concept combining humour and music and featuring entirely new material, Sauvé’s zany universe meets the grandeur of classical symphonic music. Here, different classical works comment, support, illustrate, emphasize and represent the comedian’s hilariously twisted forays in his favourite playground: the diverse ways in which his fellow human beings function. In so doing, he continues his own path of self-exploration.


Sauvé’s juxtapositions of competing concepts like the existential and the banal, the crucial and the useless lead the listener to wonder if these opposites have something in common after all. Do seemingly insignificant situations mirror the larger picture? Finding that out with Sauvé is well worth the adventure!


You won’t want to miss this unique and grandiose event, back by popular demand for only 3 nights at the Maison symphonique!

What critics had to say about the show presented in Montreal in July 2017

“André Sauvé’s show with the OSM will be remembered as one of the classics of the Just for Laughs Festival and as part of the legacy of Quebec humour. This comedian has delivered an extremely refreshing perspective, marvellously revealing what is shared by two universes seemingly very far apart. This is really great art.”, Le Journal de Montréal

“When the lights went off after the show we attended on Friday, the audience at the Maison symphonique spontaneously rose to its feet to give the comedian and the orchestra not just one or two, but three standing ovations. They were amply deserved.”, La Presse

“This exploration of life in all its different states is elegantly matched with the symphony orchestra, one beautifully supporting the other.”, Le monde
