In the context of the Brussels theatre summer festival "Bruxellons" , I invite you to join me for this hilarious play, adapted of Francis Veber's Protected content "Le contrat".
"L'emmerdeur" ( literally The Troublemaker) is also a Protected content black comedy film starring Jacques Brel, appearing in his tenth and final feature film. Directed by Édouard Molinaro and co-starring Lino Ventura, Caroline Cellier, and Jean-Pierre Darras.
Francis Veber's humour is as young and fresh as ever and the actor's performances absolutely deserve to be seen !

Synopsis: Ralph Milan is a contract killer who is paid to kill Louis Randoni, whose testimony in various trials could harm the organisation. Ralph waits for his prey in his hotel room, but is interrupted by his comical neighbour, a shirt salesman named François Pignon. Pignon, who is suicidal since his wife left him for a reputed doctor named Fuchs, tries to hang himself on the waterpipes, but only manages to cause a flood. Realizing that if Pignon tries to kill himself again the police will search the place, Milan offers to talk him out of it until after his assassination. Unfortunately Pignon starts irritating him more, and makes it more difficult for him to fulfill his contract killing.
