Personal Quote:

My success is also a sign that humor and talent are universal, and capable of crossing social divisions - and international borders.

Trivia:

Debbouze was born in Paris in 1975 to immigrant parents from Taza, Morocco. The family returned to Morocco when he was one year old, but moved back to France in 1979 and eventually settled in Trappes, a western suburb of Paris. He is the eldest of six siblings and holds both, French and Moroccan citizenship. See more »
