With the song Funny, Fanny Herrero opens her comedy club on Netflix

Netflix – On Demand – Series

From Instagram to Parisian cellars, passing by France Inter, it seems that an entire generation has found in the art of humor a form of catharsis, or at least an outlet for contemporary anxiety. How many, in fact, every evening, go up on stage while one lies on the sofa, recounting sorrows, insults, frustrations, and tantrums, hoping to win the support of the audience, even their attention as a producer?

Showrunner Fanny Herrero dedicated the first series developed under her exclusive contract with Netflix to these millennials, who are connected and fun – the first French American “talent”.

Excellent Mariama Gueye (Gloria) lends her rep and sense of rhythm to Aissatou, a talented but weary young mother. Backed by Nazir (Younes Boussef, who came from the rap scene, is revealing the series), a talented and florid delivery man, she enjoyed resounding success thanks to the deliciously delicious graphic that went viral.
