Mike Ward laughs in both languages

Mon 21 Jul, 2014 - Spotlight

Mike Ward grew up in Quebec City, the offspring of an anglophone father and a francophone mother. Bicultural through and through, his comedy career has taken place largely in French, but he recently got a chance to show his dual roots at Just for Laughs' Les Anglos gala. According to La Presse, he ended up stealing the show.

His lighthearted approach to the question of language and culture in his home province is on full display in this interview with La Presse, conducted ahead of the gala. Ward jokes, «J'étais plus anglo à Québec et, à Montréal, je suis plus franco. Aujourd'hui, plus personne ne me juge, mais c'est peut-être parce que je passe à la télé!» ("I was more anglo in Quebec City and in Montreal I'm more franco. Now, nobody judges me anymore, but maybe that's because I'm on TV!"). He also takes the opportunity to dispel three common stereotypes of anglos, squeezing in a jab at Toronto mayor Rob Ford and defending Albertans while he's at it.
