Contestant Search for the Hilarious New Entertainment Show Lâcher Lousse

Co-hosted by Charles Lafortune and his hypnotist sidekick Messmer


The TVA Network will soon introduce Quebec audiences to a hilarious and unpredictable new show called Lâcher Lousse, adapted from You’re Back In The Room, an original concept from the independent production company Tuesday’s Child and represented by BBC Worldwide North America.

The new program is produced in Quebec by Pixcom and Entourage Télévision, and developed in collaboration with Quebecor Content, whose acquisition team obtained the format through a deal with BBC Worldwide North America.


A new entertainment show like no other

Each episode will feature teams of contestants executing different challenges, but with an added twist: before they start the game, they’ll be hypnotized by Messmer, who will make it his mission to distract the contestants and make things as difficult as possible for them. The results are sure to be totally outrageous – and incredibly funny. The better each team can play the game, the bigger the winning jackpot.

Hosted by Charles Lafortune

Beloved TV personality Charles Lafortune will orchestrate the proceedings for every wild and wacky moment. His vast experience will undoubtedly be a great asset to guide our contestants along as they work without a net!

Lâcher Lousse is pure entertainment and comedy therapy,” says Ginette Viens, Vice-President, Brands & Content, at TVA Group. “The show is designed to create surprising situations that will showcase Charles Lafortune’s amazing improvisational talent as host, as well as the spellbinding skills of Messmer. We’re convinced that contestants will experience unforgettable moments of joy when they appear on the show.”

“Diving into this exciting adventure represents a tremendous opportunity for me,” comments host Charles Lafortune. “What a treat to work on a show where anything can happen! I’m convinced that Messmer and I will make a great team – together, the sky’s the limit. All that’s missing is you! Come see us at the auditions on April 8 and 9.”
