2023 Série Hommage is… RBO

This new opus is a festive exploration of the eccentric world of Rock et Belles Oreilles, an unconventional journey into the explosive, deliciously slobbery world of the famous Quebec comedy group. Gleefully controversial and masters of the art of the ridiculous, RBO have redefined the boundaries of humor with their colorful characters, burlesque parodies, memorable sketches and the ever-popular “The Tounes”. Come and enjoy an evening inspired by Rock et Belles Oreilles-style delirium-performance. This new edition will perform from July 17, 2023 to August 17, 2023 at the Amphithéâtre Cogeco in Trois-Rivieres, QC.

And more…
