Waly Dia is back on his years in the galleys : “I played in front of drunk people in bars. But I told myself if I get to laugh with them while they are stuffed, someone who pays for his place, I should arrive there, I think. (…) At the base, I began to Nantes, but after I went to play in Paris. After playing, I was sleeping at the train station in the evening to take the first train. Once, I passed people who were coming out of one of the bars where I had played and who had seen me sleeping at the train station. I explained to them that I was not HOMELESS, that I had no home in Paris, right.

The former participant of’One does not ask only to laugh then turned to the subject of racism, one of the themes of his show. He made no secret of having been a victim : “Unfortunately, it is difficult to miss. We would like not to have lived it, now I have tried to find a way in which that racism does not enter into account. That is to say that I don’t leave the place for those racists to decide if I would have this job or not. I tried to get away, but it is present and you have to fight it.
