Over the years, the French comedy has become internationally famous, fact that makes it unique and unrepeatable. Although many people believe that the precursor of this type of shows was Molière, these shows started before him. It all began in the time of Louis XVI (in 1680), when the actors of the Bourgogne and Guénégaud companies supported the development of French Comedy, which was nothing but humor and drama taken to extremes. Guénégaud was the old Molière’s theater company led by Charles Valet and the famous Molière came a few years later. French comedy and theater have a mission to preserve and promote the legacy left by Molière, which undoubtedly occupies a privileged place from then until now. And since the creation of the Comedie Francaise, his works have been performed more than 30,000 times.
