Piment fort

Network: TVA Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1993 to 2001

Broadcast Medium: Television

This program, hosted by Normand Brathwaite from 1993 to 2001, was built around all kinds of humorous pursuits and games. Three comedians would be invited on to each show to make the TV audience laugh. The guests would lampoon current events and trends, as well as politicians, artists and all kinds of other personalities.
Normand would begin each show wearing an eccentric hat. He and his guests often commented on certain artists and other personalities in a manner that generated considerable controversy, and which ultimately led Brathwaite to abandon Piment fort.
