Fallen comedian Julien Lacroix will make another comeback to the stage before Christmas.
In a question-and-answer formula where “comedy and confession” merge, Julien Lacroix tries to pick up the pieces with his people and restore his reputation in a bar in Montreal’s Maisonneuve district as Hochel. Denials of his misconduct and sexual misconduct charges have been pending against him for two years.
“One of the things the last few years have taught me is that conversations in person rather than through social media are always more rewarding. I am performing this evening in front of an audience (of 30 people) in Montreal on December 21-22,” he indicated on the event page.

The comedian has not performed on stage since March 12, 2020. He said he was “terrified, but excited” at the thought of getting back on stage.
The exact location of the event, accessible at a cost of $15, will be notified to ticket holders 24 hours in advance.
Note that this is not Julien Lacroix’s first foray into the limelight.
Last July, he held a similar event to mark his two years of sobriety, but had to back out at the last minute after receiving threats, some of which were directed at his family members. The protesters also promised to disrupt the evening.
For the occasion, he had to record a Q&A podcast in front of an audience of 25 in which he wanted to talk about his rehabilitation. He said to himself: “Very excited at the thought [jaser avec ses “fans”]”.

Is Julien Lacroix trying to get back into the limelight because his ex-girlfriend, Genevieve Morin, recently cleared him of the accusations made against him in a controversial report by columnist Isabelle Hache of “La Presse”? This journalistic work of “La Presse” is the subject of a podcast by journalist Marie-Yves Tremblay of FM 98.5.
On social networks, reactions to Julien Lacroix’s return on Thursday afternoon were mixed. Some asked him to give him a second chance, while others laughed it off.
