Michel Choquette

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Michel Choquette (born March 14, 1938) is a Canadian humorist who has written for print, for television and for film, and a comedian who has performed for television.

Life and career

Choquette was born March 14, 1938 in Montreal, Quebec to a French Canadian family.

He attended Selwyn House School and did his undergraduate studies at Sir George Williams University. Afterwards, he studied for a master's degree in archaeology at the University of Pennsylvania, but did not graduate.[1][2]

In 1959 he created a record called "Songs of Murray Bay", which made fun of a summer resort town on the St. Lawrence which was widely popular locally. Because of this song, Choquette, at age 22, caught the interest of Cambridge-based musical satirist Tom Lehrer.

Along with Peter Elbling, Choquette was half of the comedy duo "The Times Square Two" from 1964 to 1970.[3]

Choquette wrote for the Harvard Lampoon, and for National Lampoon magazine, where he was a Contributing Editor from 1970 to 1971, an Associate Editor during 1972, and a Contributing Editor from 1973 to 1974.[4]

During the 1970s, Choquette put together The Someday Funnies, a large collection of original comics about the 1960s that were created especially for the book by 169 writers and artists. The book was released by Abrams on November 1, 2011.[5]

Choquette presently teaches screenwriting, comedy writing and creative writing at McGill University and Concordia University in Montreal.
