  Summary  

Alain Chabat is a French actor and director who appeared in La Cité de la peur, French Twist, The Taste of Others, The Science of Sleep, and Happily Ever After.

  Biography  

 life and career
Chabat was born in Oran, French Algeria. He is Jewish.

His media career began in 1987 when he founded the comedy group "Les Nuls" with Bruno Carette, Chantal Lauby and Dominique Farrugia. Les Nuls' first appearance on French television, on the subscriber channel Canal Plus, was a sci-fi spoof entitled Objectif Nul. The show shares striking similarities with the British TV series Red Dwarf, although both shows were released at roughly the same time and it is unlikely one influenced the other.

Both as a member of Les Nuls (in La Cité de la Peur) and in his solo efforts (including Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra, in which he both directed and acted), Chabat is one of the few French comedians who has managed to successfully emulate the heavily referential, pop-culture-based writing style of the Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker trio and adapt it to the tastes of the French audience.

Chabat also voiced the title character in the French dubs of all three Shrek films, replacing Mike Myers. He won the César Award for Best Debut in 1998 for Didier.

He also acted in Happily Ever After and in Prête-moi ta main alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg. He played Napoleon Bonaparte in the 2009 film Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.
