Ennio Marchetto – the award-winning international comedian dubbed
‘The Living Cartoon’ - is on his way to the UAE capital to bring a touch
of humour to Gourmet Abu Dhabi
– the 16-day culinary festival which runs across 20 host venues from 8 to 23 February.
The Italian transformational artist will make his Abu Dhabi debut
at a special themed event at the Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi Yas Island on 9
February, when his brand of humour will be accompanied by exquisite
culinary creations from one Michelin-starred Chef William Ledeuil, the
Frenchman noted for having redrawn the contours of contemporary cuisine.
Ennio Marchetto has revolutionised the art of origami into
theatrical magic. Backed by an eclectic soundtrack, he uses his dynamic,
physical comedy and ingenious costumes to magically morph into parodies
of superstars and historic characters. A winner of the Cannes Best Show
and Golden Lion Venice Entertainment Festival awards, Marchetto has
performed in 70 countries with Associated Press dubbing him “hysterical”
