The “Marrakech of Laughter” forced to take a break. The 2023 edition of the great festival orchestrated by Jamel Debbouze and long awaited by the Marrakchis will now be postponed for “logistical” reasons.
The organizers of the “Marrakech du Rire” Festival and the M6 Group have just announced, in a joint press release published this Thursday, the postponement of the 2023 edition given the impossibility of receiving spectators at the Badii Palace this year. . ” DThe restoration work of the Badii Palace will be carried out, thus preventing the reception of the public at this time“, they let know.
” It is with regret but also out of attachment to the identity of the Festival that it has been decided to postpone it, no other site can replace this emblematic place which saw the birth and growth of the Festival.“, add the organizers.
” Jamel Debbouze and all the Festival teams would like to thank the public for their loyalty“, they concluded.
Initiated in 2011 by comedian Jamel Debbouze, the Comedy Festival brings together every year on the stage of the Palais Badii, in Marrakech, countless comedians, from here and elsewhere, acclaimed by the public, including the famous Gad Elmaleh, Frenchman Kev Adams, comedian and actor Malik Bentalha, comedian Ahmed Sylla and Franco-Moroccan comedian Mohammed Benyamna, known as Booder.
The “Marrakech du Rire” has since become a real meeting place for spectators, especially French speakers. This famous show has also highlighted many artists, who have become great today, including Inès Reg, Waly Dia, Nawell Madani, Ilyes Djadel…
Indeed, Jamel Debbouze has sweated blood and water to bring together this skewer of comedians and make this great festival last. ” This festival cost me dearly, humanly, physically, mentally, of course financially, but it brought me so much, nourished me. He allowed me to become in a way the artist and the man that I am today“, had entrusted the comedian in the pages of the Parisian.
