Mado Lamotte, the stage name of Luc Provost, is a Montreal drag queen, author, singer and gay community personality.

Career[edit]

Lamotte has been performing for 25 years as of fall 2012. She was a longtime[vague] MC and DJ of Ciel Mon Mardi at Sky, before opening her own drag cabaret, Cabaret Mado, in Montreal's Gay Village in 2002. She usually only lip-synchs the opening number, preferring to simply DJ (on certain nights) and bring her comedy talents to bear as MC though she occasionally favours her audience by singing live.

Lamotte is also an author, writing a weekly column for the Ici weekly newspaper and a monthly article for the Fugues gay and lesbian newsmagazine. In 2000, she published a collection of her columns entitled Tu vois bien qu'est folle (She's obviously crazy).

She has also released in 1996 a single (Le Rap A Minifée), had a cameo appearance in the 2003 movie Saved by the Belles, and starred in the 2007 play Saving Céline, in which she (credited as Mado Lamotte, not Luc Provost) portrayed a drag queen obsessed by Céline Dion who becomes embroiled in a murder plot against the singer.

Lamotte's Full Mado - Le Remix Album was produced by Montreal's producer/remixer ErekMcQueen. The album is a mixture of songs from the 70's, 80's & 90's, remixed in different modern styles with rewritten lyrics from Lamotte.
