À chacun son déclic. Reda Saoui a eu la piqûre de l’humour à l’âge de 6 ans quand son père l’a assis devant le petit écran pour regarder la vidéocassette d’un spectacle de l’humoriste et comédien algérien Fellag (Monsieur Lazhar). « Je ne savais pas qu’il était possible de vivre en faisant des conneries ! Fellag a été le premier à faire du stand-up en Algérie, à dialoguer avec le public et à dénoncer des problèmes de société sur scène. Ça m’avait vraiment impressionné », se rappelle Reda Saoui. Né à Saint-Eustache, le jeune homme a passé son enfance entre le Québec et l’Algérie, son pays d’origine. « J’y ai vécu six ans. C’est là-bas que j’ai “acheté” mon humour!» dit-il.
