Martin Vachon on Tour
Though he first made a name for himself in the theatrical world, Martin Vachon believes he was destined to have a career in comedy, too. Growing up in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, he recalls going to sleep every night while listening to the monologues of the great Quebec humorist Yvon Deschamps on his Discman. In his first stage appearance at school, he cracked up his classmates with jokes borrowed from Deschamps and other comedy heroes like Pierre Légaré and Jean-Michel Anctil.
At age 17, too young to enter the National School of Humour, he instead tried theater school. Upon graduating from l'École de théȃtre du Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe, he soon racked up credits in theater companies and productions all over Montreal.
Yet comedy remained Vachon's passion, such that whenever he wasn't treading the boards or scoring roles on TV shows like ‘La galère' and ‘Mémoires vives,' he was performing on club stages. In 2010, he appeared alongside other young comedy hopefuls on Just for Laughs' newcomer showcase and the festival's reality TV competition show ‘En route vers mon premier gala,' making it to the semifinals.
In 2013, Vachon began hosting the same Thursday night show at Chez Maurice à Saint-Lazare that helped launch such stars as Louis-José Houde and Dominic Paquet. In addition to appearances at Just for Laughs, the ComédiHa! Festival, and Zoofest, he served as Peter MacLeod's opening act for his hit show ‘Libre.' Meanwhile, Vachon got another chance to showcase his comedy skills on stages all over Quebec as an actor in a French language production of American playwright Ken Davenport's international hit ‘My First Time.'
In 2018, Vachon realized his long-held dream of presenting his own one-man show, ‘Premier rendez-vous.' Mixing and matching his influences and inspirations just as he did as a boy on-stage in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Vachon describes his style as a combination of Jean-Marc Parent's storytelling, Louis-José Houde's humorous observations, and Stéphane Rousseau's physicality. Intelligent, bold, and engaging, the result proves that Vachon is a comedy natural.
