Despite these troubled times, the French, behind their mask, still want to laugh. But how to make people laugh in the time of Covid-19? Overnight, Olivia Moore, a comedian for 10 years, had to leave the boards to confine herself. This mother of three then embarked on writing videos for social networks. “I said to myself, finally, your place remains the one it has always been, that of trying to make people laugh“, she confides.

The Covid-19 inspires. Comedian Karim Duval has decided to turn tragedy into comedy, and created videos that create a buzz, such as “Covidism”, or the new fashionable religion. “It’s impossible not to talk about the Covid. […] Better to laugh about it, because it’s a cure, it’s the best medicine for anger“, he says. Laugh despite the pandemic: the French have never needed it so much.”Laughter will really activate the reward circuit, truly generate well-being, but not only: it acts on physical health, on moral health, but also on intellectual health“, explains Sylvie Chokron, neuropsychologist and research director at CNRS.
