"They are there to have fun. During rehearsals, it's fun, we have fun. But in the evening, when you are facing a room that is afraid and waiting, it's not the same thing ", explains Olivier Benkemoun.

The latter specifies that “all those who have done this job of master of ceremonies come out flat”.
