In real life

Daughter of an engineer and a speech therapist from Nantes, Caroline Vigneaux received a rather strict education in private religious establishments.

A law graduate from the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne, the young woman takes an oath and puts on a lawyer's robe after passing through the Bar Training School.

She pleaded for several years, working for prestigious firms, such as the American firm Dewey & LeBoeuf, which she joined in 2005.

But his vocation is elsewhere.

In 2001, she joined the theater troupe of the Union of Young Lawyers.

In 2008, she dropped her brilliant career as a lawyer to embark on humor.

She enrolled at the Cours Florent and worked on her first show, There was a fairy.

She stood out with her second one-woman-show,

Caroline Vigneaux quits la robe

, where she describes with great self-mockery her past as a lawyer and her career change.

His last show entitled

Caroline Vigneaux bites the apple

, nominated for the 2019 Molières, has been a hit since its launch in 2018. On stage, the “optimistic feminist” comedian distills with crazy energy a history of feminism as joyfully quirky as it is instructive, with a hilarious finale in apotheosis on taboos feminine.

"At one point, I said to myself that we had to break these taboos, I'm going far because I'm on stage," she laughs.

A show that will take him to the Olympia in Paris from April 13 to 16.
