Alain Chabat has the ability to to transform what he touches into gold and TF1 has understood this well. By entrusting him with the controls of an exclusive late show, launched this November 21 at; 10:55 p.m., the front page is betting on succeeding there; where all previous attempts have failed. The Chabat leg could well be the key; of vault which will allow to the chain of the Bouygues group to achieve this feat.

Animator “ in all forms”
When asked how he defines himself, Alain Chabat responds with his trademark humor. “My most beautiful role is that of father,” in the best way to define themselves. Comedian, host, producer, agitator… His many years of career have allowed him to tick many boxes. “There are plenty of shapes to choose from. exploiting is çthat”s great,” he concludes simply.
Among the latest challenges that made him look good but which he had not yet had the chance to face, that of hosting his own “late show”. View of the lights of a city at night, desk for the animator and sofa. for the guests. The codes mobilized for the program embodied by the ex-Nul leave no room for doubt, it is a “” the American” Facing this setting, 300 people have taken their places in the audience and are impatient to discover the contours of the program broadcast. on the sidelines of the World Cup in Qatar.
Coming out from behind the imposing blue curtain arranged to left of the stage, Alain Chabat is acclaimed; while the Laters – the band that performs the show’’s jingles live – sing a tune in which his name is repeated. to many times. Side styling, the host of this new show has opted for for simplicity in a black three-piece suit.
“”Get your ass kicking”” with the guests
Many prestigious guests will follow one another on the list of guests of the new program. Because Alain Chabat is also an address book that takes place at; like an endless parchment.
The host knows how to mobilize his friends when it comes to filling the sofas facing him on the show. But the objective for him is not “to send heavy stuff”, it’s mainly to “see them kick their ass and come out happy”.
< p>In the meantime, given the reception of the public, there is no doubt that the star of the recordings is him. From left to; right, he greets the public, smiling, addressing some “thank you” to some spectators seated on the bleachers. Before settling in his desk, he lets himself go a little swaying as if to thank the musicians who accompany him on set.
Interviews in the form of sketches
Once at his office, Alain Chabat sorts through his files and settles into his role as host of the evening. Hidden behind the curtain, his guest – whose identity we cannot reveal to you; – waiting to be announced to trample on turn the stage. “We shake hands to say hello?”,” asks the host. His guest nods. “I would have offered; a finger in the ass but I think it’s too familiar,” said Chabat. The audience is hilarious, the show hasn’t even really started yet.
A far cry from a traditional news interview guests, it’s a crazy dialogue that takes place between the host and his interlocutor once installed. in the sofa. That evening the guest presents his “gift” from its barcode. In total, three personalities follow one another facing each other. the ex-Nul and even the guest musical bends to a drunken interview second degree, 1,000 leagues away. where we are used to seeing it.

And fortunately they understand that everything we say is not true, otherwise we would be in deep shit,” the host during a press conference a few hours before the taping.
“Qatar, home to polar bears”
The evening is also punctuated by pre-recorded video sequences. What to give to the show a more political dimension. If no news item hot is approached due to the temporality recordings almost a month before the broadcast, Alain Chabat does not hesitate to evoke major societal themes.

[…] Qatar, the world’s first home to polar bears”, will be heard in a fake advertising spot. A real snub to; the World Cup in Qatar, which was broadcast before Le Late with Alain Chabat. Proof of “freedom” total” from which the facilitator benefits.
Especially since even in the event of success, he remains skeptical as to the possibility to renew the format once the ten episodes have been broadcast. “”” aside from shaking up the entire TF1 grid, I don't see how that would be possible.” In the meantime, he intends to take advantage of the specifications of the show that have been given to him. presented like a blank page. “I was told that the audience was not a subject for TF1.
