Serge Denoncourt wanted Louis T. to be one of the swingers present during his stay on the set of Pénélope McQuade and his wish was granted during last night’s show, when he went to take Place next to Louis Morissette.
In 2016, the comedian revealed that he had been diagnosed with positioning him in the autistic spectrum, an outing that had joined the director, himself suffering from Asperger’s syndrome. More precisely, it was when Jean-François Breau gave a big wet beak to his swinger sweetheart that Serge Denoncourt wanted to have a look at the summer show, just to talk about the physical contacts that people with autism prefer. generally avoid.
It was the first time that the judge of the gods of dance publicly addressed this neurological disorder for which he was diagnosed in childhood: ” We did not really know what to do with that. My parents were amazing because they just decided to do nothing, to send me to school and to force me, in a way, to socialize. It’s not an absolute success, but it did it: I can give a beak… People, when we say that [he does not like physical contact] , they find it a little funny, fact that they do: »Me, I’ll take you, I’ll hug you! I’m going to kiss you, come on! It’s not the end of the world, but it’s true we do not like it!”
“It’s known in my circle, around me, because sometimes I have funny actions“, he added. I know the number of white lines that exist between the theater and at home, I count bricks, I swing, I know the setting up of 15 actors while they have misery to remember the their. Conceding to having a small Rain Man side , he explained that being diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome is not serious and has not suffered, except perhaps as a child. ” It still creates dysfunctions and teaches you how to work with this disorder. In general, it improves with age, so I am getting better every day. It does not seem, but I’m getting better! He said.
The release of Louis T. had led to an increase in requests for diagnosis in the year that followed. Definitively, it is by speaking openly so that we sensitize the public and we unveil a syndrome that people who suffer from it are still often stigmatized!
