Eric Antoine, magician, comedian, actor, author has been involved with television for a long time. His participation in the first season of the show « La France a un incroyable talent » broadcast in 2006 on M6, has made him extremely popular, which his sold-out performances in the biggest European event spaces have confirmed. As a jury member for the 8th year on this famous show, he has showcased the full range of his talents to the public. He is also a producer and TV host of shows such as “Tous les vœux sont permis”. Currently on stage, he has begun the tour of his 6th show “Grandis un peu!” which is a real success. The 46-year-old magician with a very sharp sense of humor who has just been revealed as « France’s favorite TV host »* is a great fan of artists and shows and knows how to let his emotions flow.
“Since I was a child, I have had a passion for stories, both as a spectator and as an author. This job is the achievement of a childhood dream. And today, to present the closing Ceremony of the Festival alongside Amandine Petit and this, in front of all these creators that I love, is the achievement of a new dream. I can’t wait to see you again,” says Eric Antoine.
Amandine Petit, Miss France 2021, revealed to the large public in December 2020 in front of more than 10 million television viewers, has had an exceptional career ever since. A radio commentator and ambassador of several brands, she has already lit up the Festival’s red carpet during the previous edition. This year, she will also be presenting the Ceremony which will reward the best in international television production. A new challenge for Amandine Petit, a committed and passionate young woman with many projects in the pipeline.
Amandine Petit: “It is a great honour to be Master of Ceremony of this 61st Monte-Carlo Television Festival, together with Eric Antoine. Last year, I closed the Festival’s red carpet as a guest next to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, and this year it is with great emotion that I will present the ceremony on the Grimaldi Forum stage.”
“It is a magnificent and very complementary duo that will present the Golden Nymph Awards. We wanted to make this evening a real show for the ever-growing Festival Fans. It is a true alliance of talent and glamour, qualities that unite these two personalities and reflect the Festival’s image” commented Cécile Menoni, Executive Director of the Festival.
