Mini TV shows

These YouTube channels aren’t made by youtubers per se. These are the episodes of short tv shows broadcasted on the French channel Canal+.

Bloqués – Two guys spend their time on their couch doing nothing and talking about life and random things. They use a lot of slang and it’s not too fast when they talk. The two actors are Orelsan and Gringe, two rappers from Normandy (I recommend their music too). They also made a movie « Comment c’est loin » shot in Caen, Normandy. //\\ No subtitles.

bref. – This is the life of a Mr. Nobody in France. Or a Mr. Everybody: The main character goes through life as a normal person. You’ll see him eating pasta, playing video games and dating. All of this while sharing his thoughts in a funny way. There are a lot of references to French pop culture. Each episode has a fast pace and doesn’t last more than a couple of minutes. “Bref” means “brief” in French. It’s also used as “anyways” between two phrases. That’s why every episode begins and ends with the word “bref” and is very short. Disclaimer: this YouTube account isn’t official, that’s why you won’t find all the episodes and why the videos may disappear some day! //\\ No subtitles.

Les Tutos – Absurd and hilarious tutorials. Very energetic character who speaks really fast. At the end of each video, Camille says a few random words before ending with « j’vous aime putain » (meaning « I love you, fuck »). //\\ All videos have English & French subtitles.

Serge le Mytho – The story of a guy who tells stories. The main character is Serge le mytho from the series Bloqués, where he was a recurrent character. In Bloqués, the character of Serge is hilarious! He keeps sharing incredible stories about his life. But “mytho” means he’s lying a lot! These videos are for very advanced learners only because Serge uses a lot of verlan, even with words we don’t usually use verlan with (verlan = phenomenon in spoken French where we change the order of syllables in words, for example “louche” (fishy, shady) can become “chelou”). So good luck to understand him! Random fact: The actor of Serge is also a recurrent character of bref. And he’s also in the popular French tv show Hero Corp. //\\ No subtitles.

What The Fuck France – French habits and costumes seen by a British guy living in Paris. Hilarious and accurate! The videos are mostly in English (with French subtitles) with some sentences or words in French. This channel won’t teach you much French since it’s in English, but you’ll learn a lot about some weird French stereotypes.
