The respect artists have for Serge Fiori is deeply touching. This is what we chose to remember from the project the songwriter is presenting today, the so-called web show Chez Padre with Serge Fiori.
Posted at 8:00 am yesterday
In this series of intimate interviews posted online on Tuesday, the musician (along with many others) changed his guitar for the host microphone to interview 11 people he particularly admired. And apparently, the concept is mutual. We realize this by watching his one-hour interview with Luke Picard, during which the actor and filmmaker respond with great generosity to the sometimes clumsy and often enhanced questions asked by the unparalleled leader of the harmonium.
Because Serge Fiori does not have a tight interview plan. In fact, he does not appear at all. But what he has is the result of a close relationship with the guest, many years of friendship or high respect. And it leads to some scenes, but we never have a chance to witness Chez Padre (Nicknamed him for a few years) followed the traditional talk show format. Among them, let us point out the moment of giving up by imitating Luke Picard to please singer Michelle Chartrand. Or when he talks about his 20-year-old son Henry.
We can compare Chez Padre with Serge Fiori To Another afternoon at the next table, The ICI premiere radio show is now available on the TV version, in which the two artists dine and have an intimate conversation. But it is dishonest and most of all negative Chez Padre. The budgets of the two meetings are not the same, the projections must be on the rhythm side (strict editing is possible to eliminate many dead times), research side and side decoration (a black screen, two chairs, a green plant, a side table covered with tablecloth and a Buddha head).
Of firing Chez Padre It all happened last year at Serge Fioris in Sagune-Lock-Saint-Jean, where he has lived for almost two years. Along with Luke Picard, Michelle Coat, Guyline Tremblay, Normand Brathwaite, Luke Dion, Isabel Richer, Michelle Barrett, Frances Castell, Regis Labyum, Anne Dorval and Louise-Jean Carmire took part in the expedition.
In the videoconference, their love and affection for Fiori The screen crossed. Luke Picard praised his qualities as an interviewer, emphasizing that he “completely forgot that he was being interviewed”. “Serge introduced me to people in a way I never did,” the actor said.
In a pre-recorded message, Michelle Barrett talks about the “between buddies” interview and the “extraordinary” experience.
I forgot I had a camera. It allowed me to be standardized and without censorship.
Normand Brathwaite felt so comfortable with Fiori that they had to do the interview entirely. After a few minutes things were out of hand, the host revealed Beautiful and bum.
For his part, Luke Dion says he has left himself and that he has no judgment from the artist, just listening.
Finally, Regis LaBeouf declared in an interview that he “did not go that far”. “You can only do this with someone you like,” said the former mayor of Quebec.
When we questioned him about the unpublished revelation he alleged, Mr. Labeaume continues to escape. “I’m been spitting two pieces that I ‘ve had for a long time, for example, on my parents. And professionally, people often tell me about the successes I have achieved. Serge has taken me on my failures.”

This business model fits Serge Fiori, who co-produced the show with Michael Gagnon, Suzanne Richard and his wife Helen Lewesk. In the virtual round table, the composer Dixie By creating his own download platform, he indicated that he was enjoying a freedom that was not available anywhere else.
There is no Spikey Haired Director who can tell us what to do.
