A parody of The Walking Dead

walking dead theater

When I was in Paris earlier this month, a friend introduced me to Hyperkult, a French theater company known for on-stage parodies of popular TV shows.

Their first performance, now already ten years ago, was a comical reproduction of Dallas, heavily influenced by Ben Stiller, Les Nuls, and Monty Python. The concept was successful and other parodies followed, including Dexter, Game of Thrones, ER, Star Trek, and Baywatch.



This month, I went to see their latest show, Les Morts Qui Marchent, a parody of The Walking Dead.

Only four actors/characters graced the stage: Rick (Franck Taillez), Daryl (Vincent Bekaert), Lori (Charline Bonrepaux), and Shane (Dimitri Vaillant).

In Les Morts Qui Marchent, Rick has promised Daryl to go into town to search for his brother, but the town is invaded by “walkers.”

You'll recognize important scenes and situations from season one and season two of The Walking Dead, such as the love triangle between Rick, Lori and Shane; Rick taking responsibility for the survival of the group; the zombie chase; and the battle for dominance between Rick and Shane.

Fake advertising breaks interrupt the show, and they end the evening with “rehearsal bloopers.”

The entire show (which lasted a little over an hour) was hilarious, and I left the theater with a large grin.

Hyperkult performs in France and Belgium (and only in French), but if you're in the neighborhood and want to give their shows a try, you can check out their tour schedule on the Hyperkult Facebook page.

Are you a fan of The Walking Dead? Would you consider watching Hyperkult's parody on stage?

  1. That does sound like fun. I watched some of the first two seasons and then lost interest. But a parody of it would be hilarious. And ending with bloopers? Priceless.

  25. I really liked this post. The truth is that it is a joy that there are these theater companies that dare to parody any series or movie. What does matter to me is that they have uploaded the activity license (licencia actividad) to be able to open the theater. Since today everything works with these licenses. Thanks for sharing. I like your blog very much.

  26. Soy muy fan de esta serie, y la verdad que no me gustaria perderme esta parodia, he oido hablar de ella y tiene muy buenas criticas. Me estoy aficinonando al teatro ultimamente. Aqui en españa algunos teatros no tiene dinero ni para la licencia de actividad que necesita el recinto y es una pena, por culpa del covid. Esperemos que salgan pronto adelante.
