Yet another audience card for “The bastards”. The famous troupe which brings together actors, singers, or even French comedians, who sing to raise money for the benefit of the Restos du Coeur association, brought together nearly 8 million viewers on Friday March 3. The opportunity for teams to “TPMP” to debrief the evening and review the highlights of the concert. Cyril Hanouna, who remembered the participation of Jean-Marie Bigard a few years ago, also wanted to know why his columnist is no longer part of it today.
“There was a time, I had a meeting, there was a kind of relief supply box which suited me only very moderately. That’s why … It’s a box in which the Enfoirés kept money”, revealed the companion of Lola Marois. This one did not stop there and continued: “I wanted to follow what Coluche had done. Him, when there was too much money, when in the end there was some left over, he went to see Abbé Pierre. Once he wrote him a check of 7 million francs. To say we don’t keep anything from each season. All the money is paid. And since there was an emergency fund, I didn’t find it good”.

Gilles Verdez wanting to know more, Jean-Marie Bigard nevertheless assured that no artist was used in the box in question. This was simply intended to use the remaining money “for the following season, or use for repairs or the like”.
A fund that Patrick Fiori, Mimie Mathy and the others should not need next year. Indeed, for this edition of “Enfoirés”, Thomas Pesquet made a huge donation during the concert at Halle Tony Garnier in Lyon. “There was a nice financial gesture, it was that of Thomas Pesquet. Because we learned that he had given, which concerned the copyright of his latest book”noted Gilles Verdez before recalling: “the book was sold for 39 euros and more than 100,000 copies have been sold”. This therefore allowing the Enfoirés to collect “between 450,000 and 500,000 euros”.
