Rozon sisters sacked by Juste pour rire

Juste pour rire’s new owners have sacked Gilbert Rozon’s four sisters, who must have thought they had a lifetime contract with the festival. Item notes that the twins Luce and Lucie took charge of the festival at the end of the 1990s when their brother pleaded guilty to sexual assault. A few others who’ve been in management for a long time were also let go.

Full disclosure: I worked for the festival in the summer of 2009 and encountered the twin sisters then, but as a contract graphic designer for the season I would have made no impression. The sisters did act like they owned the place as I suppose, in a sense, they did.
