REVIEWS

“★★★★ Delightfully Weird.” – TIME OUT

“★★★★ Likeable, sweeping the audience in the sheer energy of his performance. The strength of his scatty character rips through the room like a mini-hurricane. ” – CHORTLE

“★★★★ The undeniable intelligence of Eric Lampaert’s stand-up rarely stops him from indulging in silliness or, occasionally, outright weirdness.” – TV BOMB

“★★★★ He makes it look so easy but this is a man with very funny bones. Definitely one to catch.” – DAILY EXPRESS

“★★★★ Brilliant silliness.” – THE FEST

“★★★★ Superb banter that was clearly improvised. The sign of a good comedian.” – THREE WEEKS

“★★★★ Lampaert is at ease with the performer-punter dynamic, displaying a cool comic ease that grounds the show. Natural comic flair and the knack for a decent hook, action-packed and rapid, exploring the less-traditional delivery style really works for him, and should prove enough comic bite to take him to the next level. ” – THE SKINNY

“Quirky with an eye for the absurd and a couple of near-Izzardian flourishes… energy is such that it’s almost osmotic” – THE STAGE

Alien of Extraordinary Ability

This Franco-British maniac knows no borders; both with his neurotic oft taboo approach to comedy, and literally, by sporadically gigging in the UK, France and Germany, in English, French and pigeon German. Can comedy translate across all frontiers? His European upbringing melanged with his marriage to an American, making him according to the US immigration, an "Alien of Extraordinary Ability", has disorientated everything he knows about anything.

En Français

Vous le connaissez probablement de « Mon Incroyable Fiancé » en 2014 sur TF1 et « Edward » de « Les Profs 2 ».

Ce Franco-Britannique totalement déjanté ne connaît pas de limites. A la fois par son sens de comédie névrotique sans tabou et en jouant tant en Angleterre qu’en France ou en Allemagne. L’humour peut-il traverser les frontières? Ses origines Européennes et son mariage avec une Américaine, font de lui, d’après l’immigration américaine, un « étranger aux talents extraordinaires » qui détourne tout ce qu’il connaît du monde en n’importe quoi…

Vous pouvez le trouvez sur tout les réseaux sociaux, probablement en Anglais. Il va toujours essayer de venir au pays Francophones pour faire son stand up. Promis!

“Eric Lampaert, Français élevé en Angleterre, était un peu plus allumé et a bien adapté son numéro au défi bilingue de la soirée” – LE JOURNAL DE MONTREAL
