Steve Martin and Martin Short's cameo in Olivier: “We had to keep it a secret for six months”

25's most surprising elemente Les Olivier Gala's version was undoubtedly Steve Martin and Martin Short in a video with Cathy Gauthier. It is stated that this amazing catch must be kept secret for six months magazine Gala producer.

In the Olivier opening video, we see hosts Eve Cote and Kathy Gauthier travel across town to get comedians to perform at the gala. In a row at the Place des Arts, we find Kathy coming face-to-face with Steve Martin and Martin Short. Then she gave flowers and balloons. Later in the gala, he performed two legends with photos of Quebec comedians.

These two shorts were filmed last November when the two legends visited Montreal for a show. “We told ourselves that we should see if they are interested in doing a cameo at the gala. But because they didn't know Les Oliver the step was too high! Gala producer Joan Pouliot notes.

A few minutes of shooting

Thanks to the partners at Just for Laughs, they were put in touch with the duo's agents several months before their concert. The Gala team put together a file to explain what Les Olivier was talking about. Then they sent out what they wanted to do with the two artists.

“All accepted,” said Bouliet. On the day of their performance at the Place des Arts, they welcomed the film crew in the afternoon. They only had ten minutes to shoot the images, which meant their participation could not be further refined.

The director of these capsules is Francis Cloutier, former member of Chick'n Swell. He was supported by content producer Julie LaMontage and script editor Justin Feeley.

“We agree that the Les Oliver Gala is for them [Steve Martin et Martin Short], it makes no sense, continues Joan Pouliot. But it showed us that even when you're an international star, you can still be generous and willing to give of your time. We were very pleased with this flash, which was kept under wraps until the end. It was on the air for six months. It was a great catch and we are very proud of it.
