Guy Bedos was an artist - humorist, actor, director - but he was also a committed man, a figure of the intellectual left.

Hence the many tributes that were posted on social networks on the announcement of his death. And the death of a man of spectacle can only be accompanied by a few words from the Minister of Culture.

Guy Bedos shared his humor and his convictions with the same sincerity and the same passion. We will remember in particular his great roles in cinema, his unforgettable shows and his free speech. I think of his family and loved ones whose grief I share.

The League for Human Rights pays tribute to one of its own, the humorist had been a member. “He was on the side of the weakest, the undocumented, the homeless, the lawless. Guy Bedos was on the side of humanity, against injustice and racism. Guy Bedos made us laugh by making us think and reminded us without complacency of our weaknesses. "

Dear Guy, you have made me laugh so much for so long, you were the Free Man, always free, who made others benefit from it so much. Thank you for being Guy Bedos and for staying until the end. Up there, I know you're going to go on like crazy. Always with you!

On the side of SOS Racisme, “we will remember the comic on the left with a sharp tone, sharp texts and engaged sketches, like the famous Holidays in Marrakech . "And the association recalls that Bedos and Coluche had animated" the concert of the place of the Concorde in June 1985 "then" in February 1991, it is with the same evidence that it will form with Smaïn and Michel Boujenah the trio of Sunburn at the Olympia . This resoundingly successful spectacle was then the result of desecration by far-right activists in the Carpentras cemetery where, a year earlier, the body of a Jew had been removed from his vault. This alliance between a Tunisian Jew, an Arab from Algeria and a Christian Pied-noir was therefore timely for another news: the context of the Gulf War which created so many divisions between Jews and Arabs in France and elsewhere.
