Nawell Madani: between mental charge and maternity, the spectacle of maturity

She cut her hair. Quite simply, this is the name of his new show - after 6 years of absence on stage - and it was performed on Wednesday May 8 for the first time at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, to a sold-out audience. For more than 2 hours, the 44-year-old comedian moves us, from laughter to tears. With talent. It's very well written and played. The 44-year-old actress who presents herself as "Belgian, Rebeu and Muslim 2.0" already has some success: an acolyte of Jamel Debbouze and his Comedy club where she started, she has already filled nine Olympia and wrote, directed and produced So Far So Good, a Netflix series last year. With velvet eyes and a biting smile, Nawell Madani reviews the passage of time ("before I was a star on Instagram, now I'm a redneck on TikTok"), the mental load that makes you age faster than men ( “Brigitte is actually the same age as Manu”), cosmetic surgery, her father and her Algerian origins, the secrets of sexuality with her husband Djibril for 20 years, her beef with Rihanna at the Oscars, her “social case” side » which she tries to hide, the daily racism which she calls her "racial charge" ("the Arabs, we are not popular at the moment. We have never been popular. We must "works the marketing"). After more than an hour of an already well-crafted and dense show, she delivers a second part on the hilarious story of her participation in the show Rendez-vous en terre stranger with Raphaël de Casablanca (who takes it for his rank). This 3-week trip to the end of the world will first be a torture (no makeup, -35 degrees, rudimentary hygiene and only yaks) before becoming a revelation (“it took me a while to understand that I I traveled 7000 km to take stock of my life"). Nawell modestly addresses her “fighter’s journey” to becoming a mother and her 11 IVFs. “Her new neckless Mongolian cousin” advises her to disconnect from everything for “two seasons” and reconnect with her husband. And it works. At 42, Nawell had a little Lou. She reads him a very moving letter with her husband and the shadow of their family closes the show. The audience stands up and applauds, Nawell cries: “I fought for 17 years to have my daughter. And sometimes I feel guilty when I'm not with her. She has her place on stage. A must-see! At the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées (full) until May 12, then the Dôme de Paris on November 1 and 2 and a tour of France.
