Tout le monde en parle (French pronunciation: ​[tu lə mɔ̃d ɑ̃ paʁl], Everyone's Talking About It) is a Canadian talk show hosted and co-produced by Guy A. Lepage, broadcast on Télévision de Radio-Canada / Ici Radio-Canada Télé since 2004, and simulcast on radio on Ici Radio-Canada Première. It has been adapted from the since-cancelled French show of the same name, created and hosted by Thierry Ardisson.

Concept[edit]

It is a talk show recorded in front of an audience, then edited. Every week, the show welcomes, on the same set, personalities from different spheres of interest: politics, sport, show, literature, journalism, religion, affairs, etc. They usually have taken part in news of the week, and although they are mostly Quebeckers, they sometimes are international guests. They get invited to discuss, freely express themselves and share their opinions on hot topics or on topics directly related to them.

Sometimes it consists of interviews or games, sometimes only discussion, the host pilots debates and conversations. A co-host dubbed Le fou du roi (English: the jester), meanwhile, must react promptly and spontaneously, in a humorous way, to the ongoing debate.

Host[edit]

Since the debut of the show, the host is Guy A. Lepage, a former member of the humorist group Rock et Belles Oreilles (RBO) and "the guy" in the sitcom Un gars, une fille (English: A Guy & A Girl). Le fou du roi is Dany Turcotte, former member of the humorist group Groupe sanguin.

For the December 3, 2006 edition, Guy A. Lepage was momentarily replaced by Véronique Cloutier so Lepage could participate in an interview with RBO.
