Mon dieu! C’est Antoine de Caunes, French TV presenter and all-around funny-man. Perhaps you know him from Eurotrash, the sensational British late-night show he co-hosted with Jean-Paul Gaultier.

As you know, I was in Tokyo to co-host a French documentary (for the station Canal Plus) about theme restaurants, subcultures and all that jazz. Antoine de Caunes flew in from Paris, and we kicked off our epic journey with a dinner boat cruise in Odaiba.

The TV crew boarded a quaint boat in Tokyo Bay…

Yellow boots: John Fluevog
Takoyaki-chan plush toy: from an Osaka convenience store

Behold, the traditional Japanese dinner we feasted upon! Sashimi, tempura, edamame, chawanmushi (egg custard). And alcohol. Lots of it. Nama-biru, sake, umeshu (plum wine), shochu… my memory gets fuzzy from this point onward…

Sound director Steve and I show ’em how to pose like an Asian. (Remember my CNNGo dissertation on this serious subject?)

Apparently, the oysters were laced with LSD.

Monsieur de Caunes and I compared our new Canon cameras (I have a Powershot S90).

Once we were plenty juiced, I got the karaoke started. Driver Hiroshi and I did the Bon “shovel dance” together.

The TV crew was hand-picked from all over the globe, and everyone clicked from day one. By the end of the shoot, we had accumulated a Mount Fuji of funny memories.

Antoine didn’t partake in the sing-a-long. When the producer took over the microphone, he pretended to vomit and jump out of the boat!

Have you watched Eurotrash? Any French readers here who know of Antoine de Caunes? He’s as hilarious and nice as you’d expect…

    I had a minor freak out when I read the word “tempura” because it’s spelled similar to the word “tempera” which is a type of paint. lol
    I’ve heard of Antione de Caunes but I’ve never seen any of his work. I’ll have to look him up.

    Glad you had fun! (:

    Yes, he’s very famous in our country, he used to do funny sketches with José Garcia and he is a respected actor.
    I’ve never seen Eurotrash (since it was aired on a private channel and I’ve never wanted to pay for watching tv), I didn’t know that Antoine was fond of japanese’s culture. Quite a good surprise.

      He had a great time in Tokyo! The episode will air on Canal Plus in November. :)
