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.

  13. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
