His early TV appearances included Chorus , the series Les Enfants du rock, again for A2, and then his breakthrough with Nulle part ailleurs for Canal+.

In addition he appeared in an advertising campaign for Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles ice lollies, which he claimed to be "a French lollipop, on a very British stick."

He provided voices in Aardman Animation TV show Rex the Runt.

He has been a long-time AIDS awareness campaigner, fronting the organisation Soirées de l'humour — Solidarité sida.
