Theatre through and through:

Bruno is so immersed in theatre that it is impossible to separate this side of him from the rest. He was born on a wine-making estate in Burgundy, but it was the stage that was to be his calling. After training at the Cours Simon drama school in Paris, he debuted his career on the French television comic sketch show Le Petit Théâtre de Bouvard. However, Bruno's true passion is for the stage and he acts, writes and produces to suit his mood. He is behind several successful plays featuring major French humorists. His play 'J’adore l’amour, j’aimerais bien le refaire un jour!' was co-produced by Acte Sept and he and Olivier Yéni co-wrote the latest staging of their successful comedy 'Court sucré ou long sans sucre?' He is also director of the Théâtre de l’Archipel in Paris.

Bruno enjoys a strong bond with Olivier and writes regularly for Acte Sept bringing his humour and sense of theatre to many of the events created by the agency.
