No Ordinary Path… Martin Dubé has built his career on a whim through impulse and daring gambles.
Who would have thought that this Montrealer would sing at the biggest venues on the planet and perform in the most beautiful palaces – from Las Vegas Ceasar’s Palace to La Scala in Milan to cruise ships sailing the world.
While performing at a show in the United States, Martin met Saturday Night Live producer Joe Bodolai, who went on to becomes his scriptwriter for the English version of his act.
In 1999 he took part in Larry King’s Cardiac Foundation Gala.
When he performed at the Bâle’s Festival in Sweden, the director of the Moulin Rouge in Paris hired him for a series of 67 shows – all in English! “He always wanted to talk to me in English!” Martin Dubé remembers. On some nights, where a more local audience was in attendance, he started impersonating Francis Cabrel and Édith Piaf and as a result his show became more and more bilingual.
One of Martin’s greatest memories was co-hosting the 75th annual Oscar pre-gala with Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominated actress Kate Hudson.
