The Palace of Culture hosted on Sunday, January 2nd, 2011, ‘Bonjour 2011’, the famous end-of-the year sketch comedy show.

On January 2nd, a crowd consisted of teens, adults and children ‘invaded’ ‘Anoumabo’, the 4000-seat auditorium in The Palace of Culture in Treichville, Abidjan, to see ‘Bonjour 2011’, the comedy show performed by a myriad of talented humorists.

The crowds started to gather in the compound of the Palace at 10 a.m, but they flooded through the gates two hours later. The 4000-seater auditorium was fully packed with spectators visibly happy to get close to the stage and to the laugh-provoking artists.

“I am deeply saddened as my country is sick. This hits me a lot, that is why I am here to have fun to help me forget the painful events we have been going through”, said a 30-year old pregnant, when she was asked to convey her new year’s wishes. Later on, the female spectator was joined by humorists among whom, Chuken Pat who came back to the ongoing political crisis and said: “May true peace be the present for all those who live in Ivory Coast”.

‘’May 2011 brings us a lasting peace and stability’’ said, Le Magnifique, another humorist with a loud voice. Next, ‘Zongo’, ‘Tao’, ‘Manan Kampess’, ‘Felicia’, ‘Omega’, ‘Le Prophète du rire’, other humorists, said they all wish peace back to the West African country.
