He became a legend with Les démons du midi, a daily show that he co-hosted and which commanded a huge daily audience across Québec. In 1967 he bought the old Dominion Playhouse on Papineau Street in Montréal and renamed it the Théâtre des Variétés, which specialized in keeping the art of vaudeville alive.
