Death of Abderrahim Tounsi, known as Abderraouf
Sad day for Morocco. Comedian Abderrahim Tounsi, known as Abderraouf, has died following a long illness, according to information published by his son Osama on social networks.
Born in Casablanca in 1939, Abderraouf joined the resistance movement in 1953. He was even imprisoned for a year. As soon as he was released, he started in the theater.

The character of Abderraouf was born in 1967. “It’s the costume that created Abderraouf. While having fun trying on several costumes, I discovered that one in particular inspired me. A silly character I mimic a voice that I think goes well with the character. I liked it,” he explains. One of Abderraouf’s former classmates, a true embodiment of silliness, would also be behind the birth of this hilarious character.
He then becomes the quintessential comic character, a kind of “National Charlot”. In everyday language, it is even synonymous with ridiculous. And even if young people don’t know it at all, the expression is still relevant.
