Service après-vente des émissions, also known as SAV des émissions, was a French short comedy television series hosted by the comic duo Omar and Fred (Omar Sy and Fred Testot) from 2005 to 2012 on Canal+. The show was a segment of Le Grand Journal, a news show then-hosted by Michel Denisot. Each episode was rebroadcast the following morning on Virgin Radio.[1]

The series[edit]

  • The SAV des émissions is a receiving calling center. The basic concept is to comment on the news in a succession of short scenes. Over the years, the series also gained a number of recurring characters, interpreted by either Omar or Fred. Instead of commenting on the news, each of these usually has their own running gag and catchphrases.
  • Each gag begins with Omar or Fred picking up the phone and saying "Service après-vente, bonjour !". The other plays a character calling the SAV to ask a question.
  • The series often uses surreal humor, either with the costumes or the dialogue.
  • At first, the SAV was a segment in 20h10 pétantes, a program hosted by Stéphane Bern from 2005 until 2006.[2] From 2006, the SAV was included daily in Le Grand Journal of Michel Denisot except on football nights.
