Bettina Atala likes trying out what she doesn't know. Here she is taking up a new challenge: stand-up comedy. Together with the reference book on the subject – the Comedy Bible by Judy Carter – she rushes into the battle. But the sidekick of the collective Grand Magasin is more used to twisting codes than following instructions. Doing it with passion yet unconventionally, she breaks down the mechanisms of laughter and tests the supposed tricks of the trade. Both judges and subjects of the tongue-in-cheek experimentations, we slalom between true and false good ideas, miraculous recipes and intimate cracks. Thus revealing a tasty form of humour: the cheeky art of counterpoint.
