The coronavirus succeeds in folding the 10th edition of the “Marrakech du rire” Festival (MDR) which should be held from June 9 to 14. Jamel Debbouze announced it on his Twitter account.
It was in simple but sad words that the comedian announced the cancellation of this event which brought together thousands of people. “Faced with too many uncertainties linked to this CONNARD-VIRUS and an impossibility of preparing this festival in good conditions, it is with great regret that we are obliged to cancel this edition of June 2020”, he wrote.
However, Jamel Debbouze was delighted to celebrate the 10 years of this festival which has managed to “occupy a special place among international comedy events”. The founder of the MDR has been preparing for years to celebrate this anniversary, which he says is “a milestone in history”.
Unfortunately, the coronavirus has established itself and destroys all efforts and energies for the success of this celebration. Jamel Debbouze had promised “10 times more laughs and 10 times more kif”, with several novelties and twenty shows. “We will meet again in June 2021 and we will celebrate together as it should be the tenth anniversary of the “Marrakech du rire” on M6 and the party will be even more beautiful,” he said.
He also paid tribute to the public who must be disappointed by this missed meeting, to all stakeholders of the MDR. “A special thought for the MDR teams, for all the technicians, artists, partners and the public who have accompanied us for all these years,” he added.
