Stéphane De Groodt

Stéphane De Groodt (born 3 March 1966) is a Belgian comedian, humorist and former racing driver. Stéphane De Groodt is the son of an engineer at Texaco and a housewife who takes care of handicapped children in foundations. Dyslexic, he has a chaotic scholarity, which already translates his wills to play comedy. He did not obtain any graduation and decided to become a comedian as well as a racing driver. His parents offered him a racing driver suit and a helmet. He then went through several small jobs, including barman, journalist, marketing assistant, editor and advertiser, while entering little by little the field of the competition. He learned to become a comedian in the evening on stage while dedicating the weekends to auto racing. While cooking meal to sell it at restaurants, Stéphane De Groodt paid the auto racing school of La Châtre near Châteauroux where he met the Belgian racing driver Eric van de Poele. He was a professional racing driver from 1985 to 2000, and rose to fame especially with Formula Renault, Formula 3000, Porsche Supercup at the 2001 Spa 24 Hours, and even at the BMW M1 Procar Championship in which he received the title of Champion of Belgium in BMW Compact Cup. In 2000, he left the auto racing competition to become a full-time comedian. Stéphane De Groodt created the series File dans ta chambre, broadcast since 14 January 2002 on channels RTBF, Canal+ Belgique and France 2, and in which the texts are co-written by his wife Odile d'Oultremont. The series are small episodes in which he portrays Lucien, a totally uncultivated father attempting to answer the questions asked by his 10-year-old son Clovis about a definition or an expression. At the end of every episode, his son answers that he thought it meant something else, which is in fact the real sense of the definition or meaning of the expression. After that, the father does not believe his son and orders him to go to his room, which is the reference to the title of the series. In September 2012, Stéphane De Groodt features every Sunday on the program Le Supplément on Canal+ with Maïtena Biraben, in which he presents a column of a few minutes titled Retour vers le futur. This column functions the same way than the one he presented until 2012 on the program La Matinale on Canal+ and also with Maïtena Biraben and Caroline Roux, where he talked about his meeting with famous characters with a humoristic tune and a mixture of word plays and puns. He also presented a courrier des téléspectateurs (French for "mail of the viewers"), imaginary and funny. He pursued this column weekly on RTL with Stéphane Bern on the radio program À la bonne heure where he comments a fake mail of improbable auditors. In September 2013, after having left RTL, he joined France Inter on the radio program Comme on nous parle with Pascale Clark every Thursday, where he presents a column of a few minutes titled Mes mails, in which he comments a number of fake E-mails of auditors addressed to France Inter and Pascale Clark. ...
