French Moroccan Jewish Comedian Gad Elmaleh Points Out Absurdities in English Language



Gad Elmaleh is a Jewish Moroccan-born French stand-up comedian and actor. He has starred in several feature films, including Coco, Priceless, La Doublure and Midnight in Paris.

He has been voted the funniest person in France and was named knight of the Order of Arts and Letters by the Minister of Culture. He was also named knight of the National Order of Quebec. 

He is often referred to as the "Seinfeld of France". In 2015, Elmaleh did a national comedy tour across the United States. His new comedy special American Dream is now available on Netflix.

In this video clip from the Conan late night show, Gad is learning English and having trouble coping with the fact that he will never know how old a toddler is and how much is actually in a bunch.

Enjoy!
