Biography


Very early on, CharlyPop developed his improvisation talents in high school and college at the CEGEP de Saint-Hyacinthe. In 2003 he was awarded the second “jury prize” and the “people’s choice award” at the “Cégeps en spectacle” competition. Since then, his hunger for stardom has taken him to the Just for Laughs Festival where he was spotted by another talented comedian, Christopher Williams who, in 2005, offered to have him take part in his “No Parents Allowed” show (more than 20 performances in Quebec).

Charly’s career continued to rise in 2006, appearing in the big festivals and in a growing number of TV shows. His appearances, as guest for the well renowned Just for Laughs galas (Normand Brathwaite, Peter MacLeod and Arturo Brachetti) as well as the Grand Rire in Quebec’s comedy festival, were received with standing ovations. He also received two nominations at the Just for Laughs Festival for the “prix de la relève” (emerging artist) and “Révélation” (discovery) prizes the same year.

He made a much noticed incursion into the Anglophone community at the renowned Montreal show of Just for Laughs in 2006. Notably the first Francophone artist to take part in the Lipton Just For Laughs Comedy Tour, the largest tour of its kind in Canada, with which he went on to present in front of captive audiences in the 24 largest cities around the country. By the end of that year, he was welcomed in Europe at the Montreux Comedy Festival in Switzerland where he was discovered yet again as an upcoming phenomenon.

Summer 2007 was a busy one. Charly took part in the Normand Brathwaite gala at the Grand Rire as well as the prestigious Brachetti Dragone galas, Just for Laughs Festival’s 25th anniversary and reached new heights at the International Balloon Festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. The fall was no rest either, Charly returned to Europe where he made a very big impression on the Incroyable Talent (France 2) television show, connecting with more than 5 million spectators that enjoyed his performance.

The year 2008 began with the pedal to the metal: Charly distinguished himself at the Show du Refuge with Dan Bigras (SRC network), at the Célébration gala hosted by Garou and Mitsou (TVA network) and he received a nomination for an Olivier as the “discovery” of the year. In the spring he was invited to the Festival Paris to do his comedy act, at the Olympia in Paris and for the Festival Juste pour Rire Nantes-Atlantique.

The following year, he set a record as a performer at the Just for Laughs Festival with no fewer than 23 performances in 17 days, including the Urban Show, the Maboul variety show, the galas of Mike Ward and Patrick Groulx, the Rachid Badouri gala and on the Anglophone side of the Just For Laughs Festival with American comedian Jimmy Fallon. A very well-received performance that resulted in an invitation to perform at the Toronto Just for Laughs Festival, accompanied by Jason Alexander and Jimmy Fallon. In Quebec he appeared at the Grand Rire once again for the Martin Petit and Normand Brathwaite galas. In October and November 2008, he took part for the second time in the Just for Laughs Comedy Tour (22 shows and 18 large cities). Later that year, Charlypop became the spokesman for the Journées montérégiennes de la persévérance scolaire (a high school dropout prevention campaign). His support was deeply appreciated by all the young lives he moved during that campaign and he was asked asked to return in 2010 and 2011. This amazing year took him to Switzerland for the Comedy Nights of the Festival Rose d'Or, came back home to Montreal and presented his own mix of Charlypop and Friends at the Zoofest and the Charlypop Workshop at the “Urban Arts” of the Just for Laughs festival. He also took part in the Just For Laughs galas of Normand Brathwaite, Rachid Badouri, Mike Ward and the “Best of” show.

In 2010, with accomplice comedian Korine Côté, he created the “Humour et perseverance” show as a part of the Journées montérégiennes de la persévérance scolaire. The concept was to make high school students aware of the pitfalls of dropping out of school. The tour proved to be a big success in the schools of the Montérégie region of southern Quebec. He then flew 4 thousands kilometers west Canada to perform at the great Vancouver Olympic Games.

In July he was invited to the Just for Laughs galas of Louis Morissette, Jean-François Mercier, and Gregory Charles accompanied by the Qwartz vocal quartet. He was also part of the Pink Cendrillon cabaret show at the outdoor main stage of the Just for Laughs Festival. In the fall of 2010, Charlypop became the spokesman for the Relève en folies event, which encourages emerging artists while benefitting youth organizations, a role which he engaged in again the following year.

Variety artist, expansionist creator, imaginative team builder, he has been in the field for over fifteen years now and continues to progress at the rhythm of his passions.
