Daniel Prévost (born 20 October 1939) is a French actor and humorist.

He is best known for his part in the French television series Le Petit Rapporteur.

Early life[edit]

Daniel Prévost, alias Denis Forestier, was born to Louise Drancourt and Mohand Ait Salem.[1] His father was of Berber descent from Algeria (Kabylie region), a fact which he did not discover until later life.[2] He is the father of actors Sören Prévost, Erling Prévost and Christophe Prévost.


After attending drama school in Paris, Prévost made his theatre début alongside the likes of Michel Serrault in Un certain M. Blot. In his early beginnings he both performed alongside Boby Lapointe and became acquainted with Jean Yanne, later becoming one of the latter's favourite actors.

Although his television and cinema career began in the 1960s, it was in the 1970s that he found fame through Jacques Martin's satirical news programme Le petit rapporteur.
