Martin Matte confirmed to us that he said no to a second season of Martin Matte live on TVA in order to pursue a major project.
“TVA offered me to do a second season,” said Martin Matte, who had just returned from a trip to Japan. I was very honored by this great show of trust. Unfortunately, because I had another big project coming up at the same time, I couldn’t do both.”
TVA management confirmed that Martin Matte had informed them that he would not be back at the helm of the talk show for the second season.
Despite the mixed response to the first season of Martin Matte Live in the fall, the 53-year-old comedian draws a positive conclusion from the experience. “In the first few weeks there was a mini-storm, there were a lot of comments. It wasn't always free. I thought, “Forget it. You threw yourself into the void and I think it’s beautiful.”

“It’s hard to host a talk show. You have nothing to fall back on. You practice live in front of the world every week. It’s very intense,” the comedian said. “I love the show. I’m very happy with what we put together.”
And how did he react to the Bye Bye sketch, Martin Matte in Not, in which Louis Morissette imitates him? “It's tricky because it's pretty gross humor,” admitted Martin Matte. To be honest, it didn't affect me that much. It was right, it was actually pretty well done. I have to say that Louis imitated me very well,” said the comedian with a laugh.
What is Martin Matte's mysterious project? Comedy show? New show? “I can't talk about it right away, but very soon. In the next few weeks.”
Moved by the generosity towards Les Beaux 4h
As the 9th edition of his Les Beaux 4h Challenge ends on Saturday at Sommet Saint-Sauveur, Martin Matte admitted he was very touched to see that the goal of $600,000 had already been almost reached. The proceeds go to the Martin Matte Foundation, which supports people with head trauma or physical disabilities.
“How touching. I don't have the words… It's really beautiful. It's so close to me,” said Martin Matte, whose brother lives with a head injury. “We suffered so much in our family. We had so many needs . “It is the perfect example of people who benefit from what we do at the foundation: opening houses and offering peace of mind.”
The Martin-Matte Foundation's Les Beaux 4h Challenge takes place from January 10th to February 10th. If remote participation is possible, the ski and board marathon will take place on February 10th at Sommet Saint-Sauveur. Here you find all information.
