Although the angle of the interview was not revealed, Julien Lacroix should all in all return to the denunciations that have overshadowed his career in recent years, discuss his journey away from consumption and encourage his return to space.
Recall that the comedian left public life in July 2020 after being accused of sexual violence against nine women who denounced him in an investigation by the daily Le Devoir.
The comedian then tried several times and with different approaches to return to the media sphere. In particular, he tried to move away from a first public lecture on social networks, assuring that he was following “a therapeutic process to overcome his alcohol addiction”, then almost 11 months later he granted the “Devoir” an interview in which he had awkwardly opposed denied the alleged facts.
After canceling a first return to the stage this summer, the comedian began performing to small rooms (about 30 seats) for the recording of a podcast “Humor and Confession” just before Christmas, Questions – Answers by the way.
Shortly before, a controversial file from “La Presse +” and “98.5” breathed new life into the affair, discredited the statements of some victims and paved the way for the comedian’s return to the committees.
The program “Le monde à l’envers” is broadcast live on TVA every Friday at 8 p.m.
