    After starting his career in radio, as a host and comic, Alain Chabat joined Canal+ in 1984 where he formed Les Nuls with Bruno Carette, Chantal Lauby and Dominique Farrugia. The quartet created Le JTN, a parodic news broadcast, which become the channel’s trademark. In 1994, they starred together in the now cult classic La Cité de la Peur by Alain Berbérian.
