Marc Favreau


Marc Favreau

Marc Favreau, OC, CQ (born November 9, 1929 in Montreal, Quebec and died December 17, 2005 same city) was a Canadian (Québécois) television and film actor and poet.

Favreau began his television career as a regular on La Boîte à surprise, a long running children's TV show on Radio-Canada. At that time, he was teamed with another clown in an act called Bim et Sol. Favreau developed Sol's monologues into an enormously popular one-man show. Favreau then teamed up with another clown for Sol et Bouton. Finally, Favreau created, with Luc Durand a popular television series called Sol et Goblet.

Later, he played numerous roles on stage and on several TV series on Canadian television, such as Parlez-moi, an instructional program on the French language on TVOntario in the late 1970s. Many English Canadian children got their first exposure to the Quebec French through Favreau's work. He is best remembered for the witty deconstructions of the French language which he invented for Sol.
