Le Morning Night :
Le Morning Night marks the return to television after 20 years of famous comedian and TV personality Michaël Youn.
In each episode of this comedy game show, Michael Youn invites two teams of celebrities to compete in zany and exciting challenges: performing a karaoke with funny lyrics, hosting a hilarious news segment without laughing, or even trying to hide emotions while looking at disgusting, awkward or funny videos. The best two contestants face off in a surprising finale where they have to sing while doing what Jesus did: dance on water!
The winner of each episode of Le Morning Night will be given free airtime immediately after the show and the losing guests will get amusingly punished. During the show, Michaël Youn and his comedy friends will guarantee laughter and fun by performing shameless parodies, irreverent sketches, provocative pranks and hilarious musical performances.
