Comedian Guillaume Pineault presents the show of his Détour tour at the Étoile de Brossard on April 29, at 8 p.m. However, you have to act quickly to get tickets for this performance, which will be broadcast on TV. “The comedian is therefore one of those with whom it is good to spend time, which counts for a lot.

Édouard A. Tremblay’s feature film isn’t just for geeks. Charles (Éric K. Boulianne) is a writer in search of himself. It is his sister, Kim (Catherine Brunet) who will bring him back to reality and help him move forward. “Farador is funny, touching, a little clumsy at times, but quite well thought out.
