Dany Boon to announce shock retirement from comedy?

Boon created a stir on Friday when rumors have surfaced that his career was over.

Being a comedian isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being a comedian-actor-director just isn't fun anymore,” he might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that he may branch out into other creative fields he is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Friday evening, #ThankYouDany was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made him make the decision.

“Dany Boon was unlike any other comedian we’ve ever seen! #ThankYouDany”
