Philippe Geluck, Le Cat's Whiskers
Philippe Geluck is a Belgian humourist, writer, illustrator, actor, comic, star of stage and screen (the small one), and the French-speaking world's most popular and successful cartoonist.
He is someone to whom the not-always-flattering epithet Big in Belgium can be genuinely applied - a phrase actually coined by Queen Victoria about Philippe Geluck during one of her trips to visit her Uncle Leopold. Most famously Geluck is the creator of Le Cat (or Le Chat as it is written on his birth certificate). Twelve million copies of his 20 albums (yes 12 mill!) have been sold since Le Cat was born 30 years ago, mostly in (the few remaining ...) Francophone countries.More
Cartoon [noun]: a humorous drawing in a newspaper or magazine, often with words written below or in speech bubbles; a series of drawings that tell a story, especially a funny story.
a. Geluck cartoon [compound noun]: a humourous drawing or series of drawings, most often involving a fat talking cat, post-modernised archive images, and edible mice; all Geluck cartoons carry a health warning as their surreal and absurdist content has caused irreparable brain damage in some unprepared readers.More

We at CatComics™ do our very best to report news that is recent or hasn't happened yet - and whose dateline is later than March 2004. (This is one of our KeyValues® which you can consult in the glossy CatComics™ company prospectus). What is described as News on many websites is at least nine years old, and we believe that this is actually History, therefore infringing the Trades Description Acts of most countries, and punishable by law. Neither we nor Le Cat wish to go to prison (the prison regime for felines is notoriously harsh, and unspeakable acts have been performed on some of our furry friends by fellow inmates), so our News will be just that - News. And if we don't have any, we'll tell you, or we'll make something up.More

PHILIPPE GELUCK AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, AN EVENT ORGANISED BY 'CINÉMA ET CULTURE FRANÇAISE À OXFORD'
Thunderous applause welcomed Philippe Geluck as he entered the packed main hall of the Taylorian at Oxford University. Despite having only visited Oxford once, nearly 40 years ago he later told us, he has a fondness for the city, the country and the English culture and language. A few words of introduction (fittingly in English) and less than five minutes were enough for Geluck to put his audience at ease and make us laugh. We are already all under the spell of a comedian without affectations or pretentions.

He starts by talking to us of what first influenced him, of the golden age of comics in Belgium. At a very young age, he had a leaning towards a certain genre of humour; satirical, even black. He mentions Hara Kiri, the Monty Python and Ricky Gervais and we discover what makes him laugh on the way: the challenging of authority, ribbing those who are too serious, a fly on Hollande’s nose…
If Geluck knows how to make us laugh, he also knows how to make us think. When questioned about humour, he gives a myriad of definitions. Humour is courting with bad taste; humour is unexpected disorder; humour is synonymous with life, with love; it is a virtue that is both positive and vital; humour is also a means of discussion. But above all, humour is freedom.
In the sensitive context of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, saying freedom makes one think of the freedom of speech, which came under fire on the 7th January 2015. The comic returned to the question raised in his 2013 article, Can we laugh at everything? A little less than before, Geluck says regretfully, before rapidly retrieving his positive outlook and correcting himself: yes, we can laugh at everything, but not with everyone. He talks of the importance of easing up discussion with humour, of focusing on common ground, on universal values. Courting with bad taste yet without going too far… because we haven’t all learnt to laugh in the same way, because the defence of freedom of speech is all very well but getting a laugh with responsibility is even better.
Geluck stimulates a reflection of our duty towards speech, openness, tolerance and listening. For him, freedom of speech is never complete; it is in constant evolution and is not exempt from moments of regulation.

LE CAT IN TAIWAN
Continuing his “Going Global Tour”, Le Cat has once again left his beloved Brussels and flown off to Taipei with some of his Belgian buddies. He’s introducing the Taiwanese to a part of his Feline Humour Product Range –cartoon albums, T-shirts, mugs, chocolates, and more…–
With a literary agent in Taipei –GrayHawk– this trip may help the process of finding a publisher for Le Cat’s albums’s in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. So keep your fingers crossed and wish him luck!
SHOCK AND HORROR... LE CAT SAYS STAR WARS STORY IS A "HOAX!"
Speaking in New York where he is the guest of old friends Bill and Hillary Clinton, an angry Le Cat said he had no connection with Star Wars and that the whole story was a “complete hoax” fabricated by cartoon rivals jealous of his fame and fortune.
“Why would I, Le Cat, want to be associated with cardboard cutout cartoon characters with silly names like Han Solo and Luke Skywalker?” He did not however deny his reported affair with Princess Leia...
Angry fans, disappointed that Le Cat will not be in the new Star Wars movie, protest outside his luxury hotel in New York
"I would personally like to thank Chris, Frank, Michael, Hugo, Tiffany, Francesca, Chris and the whole of the New York Fire Department for saving me from certain death at the hands of these dangerous hooligans!"
Let Skywalker walk the sky... Le Cat strides le Globe!
“The fact that my new album – available now in selected bookshops and on my Webshop – is called ‘The Cat Strikes Back’ is a complete coincidence and the words ‘May the laughter be with you!’ were invented by the man who draws me. If anyone is to blame, it’s him. Go and talk to Philippe Geluck, if you can find him. He’s probably on one of his yachts or private jets”.
A publicity stunt?
In other developments, the magazine “Hello Celebrity Nobodies!” quoted anonymous sources that the whole Star Wars episode had been invented by Le Cat’s own publicity department to promote sales of his new album.
More in later editions…
EXCLUSIVE... BREAKING NEWS...
Over a year before Disney releases Star Wars Episode VII, the studios have asked Le Cat to kick off and head up their advance promo campaign! The studios clearly realised that bringing Le Cat on board so early would be a sure-fire way of creating worldwide interest in the new movie. Both Han Solo and Luke Skywalker applauded the move and said they could think of no-one better to bring the style, class, chutzpah, and sheer pre-paid bums on seats needed for their new adventure. Princess Leia, who is believed to have been in a relationship with the feline for several months last year, said "I’ve never known anyone who can be so intelligent and stupid at the same time. He is just so cute and utterly adorable. We are still very good friends, and he often comes round for a game of strip scrabble."
New album to mark campaign launch
Coming close on the heels (or should we say paws!!) of his recent cartoon album "Le Cat", the world’s favourite feline has published a special Cartoons Volume 2 to mark his Star Wars connection. It’s called… wait for it… "Le Cat Strikes Back" and is now available from Le Cat’s Webshop.
The content of the album has got absolutely nothing to do with Star Wars (they didn’t pay him enough to go that far) but its cartoons, strips, engravings, exclusive extracts from Philippe Geluck’s Universal Encyclopedia… and the Venus de Milo (who appears and reappears in every shape, size, form, age, place and avatar) make up an even more eclectic mix than in his previous album.
Burning speculation – will there be a Cat Vader?
It is not yet known if Le Cat will have a part in the new movie, but all the celebrity magazines are awash with speculation, following Le Cat’s cryptic words on the cover of his new album … "May the laughter be with you !"
WHAT'S IN A NAME? THAT WHICH WE CALL A CAT
BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD BE JUST AS FUNNY
So wrote Shakespeare in his play "Romeo, Juliet & Le Cat" over 400 years ago.
Pssst! Adrian! That’s the WRONG PLAY…
He realised way back then that entertainers will always change their names for fame, fortune and money... or because their own is too long, unrememberable, or just crappy. Bob Dylan (Robert Zimmerman), Sting (Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner), John Le Carre (David Cornwell), Bono (Paul David Hewson - now that's a crappy name, but then so is ‘Bono'...), David Bowie (David Jones), Iggy Pop (James Newell Osterberg Jr.), Cher (Expensive), and Johnny Hallyday (Jean-Philippe Smet)*, are just a few.
Following this age-long tradition Le Chat changed his name to seek fame and fortune in the AngloWorld, and he became The Cat... for a while. Until somebody told him that there's a whole giga-bunch of AngloSpeakers out there who think that everything French is really really cool, not realising that this is because the Frenchies are the biggest self-promoters, BSAs, and snow-job operators on the planet.
Frenchie is Cool
So Le Chat - now The Cat - decided that he was pretty Frenchie himself, and he'd call himself... Le Cat (you’re still following I hope). There were two reasons for this. The first was to distinguish himself from all the other cats in the AngloEntertainment world (Fritz, Sylvester, Garfield, Azrael, Butch, Duchess, Felix and... Hello Kitty, amongst others). And the second of course was to ride the WeLoveEverythingFrenchie wave and surf himself to the top.
So there you are. When you meet him he might even do a little Maurice Chevalier-cum-Inspector Clouseau on you if you're really lucky ("Ello, ello, mamwazelle, I just lerrrv zat leetle black dress. Eet eez so... black, so... Odraay Epberrn !").
Ladies and Gentleman, please welcome... Le Cat!
Johnny Hallyday - Belgian Rock 'n Roll singer who changed his name in the 1960s and went to France in the hope of becoming the French Elvis Presley. Unknown outside France, he has become a French national monument and treasure, has sold millions of albums, and is loved by all, from young girls to ageing rockers, ex-hippies to coal-miners, philosophers and intellectuals to Prime Ministers and Presidents. But nobody outside France has the slightest idea why.
OCTOBER 2014 - LE CAT GOES TO FRANKFURT
Yes it’s that time of year!
Summer is over, autumn is setting in and beginning to get chilly and boring, and the publishers, writers and agents of the world need an excuse to get away from home and have a merry knees-up at the global shrine where books meet business – the Frankfurt Book Fair!
And Le Cat is no exception. This year for the first time, he will be there, not only promoting his own albums (more of that later …), but giving a keynote speech “Gender Discrimination in Feline Neutering”, and moderating a discussion organised by Cats for Social Change entitled “Feline Inequality – From Park Avenue Persians to Homeless Dumpster Tabbies”.
He will be meeting with Hoffmann, Quentin & Wu (not an international law firm, but his agents for the US, China and Japan …), and waddling around revealing his works to an unsuspecting world. They won’t know what’s hit them.
Three albums will be on show, ready to be snapped up by wily publishers:
• “Le Cat (Cartoons Vol.1)”
• “Le Cat Strikes Back (Cartoons Vol.2)”
• “The Bible according to the Cat”
And if you miss him waddling around, go see him on Stand 'Association des Editeurs Belges' (ADEB) Hall 6.1 A 36!
SEPTEMBER 2014 - IT'S "LA RENTRÉE"
La Rentrée (The Coming Back) dear readers, is a very European event, and more specifically a French and Belgian thing. Children have two months' holiday from school in July and August - a time when parents have to juggle their calendars, mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts and best friends to be able to find a way to get the kids looked after for 8 weeks without losing their jobs. After this ordeal, and maybe a holiday on a sun-soaked beach or a house in the country - there comes La Rentrée, which occurs round about the beginning of September, when all this happy holidaymaking comes to an end, the kids go back to school, and some sort of economic activity slowly restarts for an interim period before the end-of-the-year holidays...
You will have noticed that Le Cat has also been away for the summer - no News since July - but now he's back too. And what a Rentrée!!
While the rest of Europe was sunning itself on beaches and sipping cocktails under parasols, he was preparing his "Cadeau de la Rentrée" - a new cartoon album in English entitled "Le Cat", and it's just been published.
Last year's "The Bible according to The Cat" was a complex, hilarious, graphic novel. "Le Cat" is a collection of Classic Cat Cartoons for those in the Angloworld who don't know this side of him.
So wait no longer. Revel in Le Cat for La Rentrée! Buy a copy! Click here!
JULY 2014 - LE YEAR OF LE CAT
Yes, Le Cat's travels around the globe over the past 10 months have been a real eye-opener for Francophonia's Favourite Feline, and now he can speak English he can understand and converse with a whole new swathe of the world's population.
A year of achievements
"The Bible According to Le Cat" is shortly to be published in Brazil (yes!) and the Netherlands and Flanders (following closely on a collection of cartoons entitled "De Kat"), and an album of cartoons is to be published in the Lebanon. And finally a new album of cartoons in English will be published in September, simply called "Le Cat" (a lot of costly marketing and branding people were involved in coming up with that title, I can tell you). The feline is now a regular contributor to the California-based comics platform AlphaComedy, and to cap it all, he has found three super literary agents for the USA, UK, China, and Japan (but more about that in the accompanying News item...).
Le Cat's travels
Le Cat has travelled to Japan, New York, Mexico and India, meeting a whole bunch of interesting people who couldn't wait to have their photos taken holding one of the feline's albums (see all my News items below) and has been followed avidly by yours truly, your roving reporter, Farhat Ajnabi, who has produced not only these exquisite News items, but a mini-series of video reportages on the feline's Indian Tour (which I thought were pretty good, given the meagre budget they gave me...).
So, what a year, eh?
And what does next year have in store? Keep reading these pages and you'll find out...
Enjoy your summer!
JULY 2014 - AND THAT MAKES THREE
One of Le Cat's big international achievements this year (I'm just quoting him on this) is finding three excellent literary agents to represent him in the USA, UK, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Japan. With their collaboration we are all pretty sure that it won't be long before the feline is published in these major territories.
Markus Hoffmann of Regal Literary in New York will represent him for the USA and the UK; Nicholas Wu of Gray Hawk in Taipei will represent him for China, Taiwan and Hong Kong; and Corinne Quentin of Le Bureau des Copyrights Français in Tokyo will represent him for Japan.
The deal with Mme Quentin was wrapped up at the end of Le Cat's recent trip to Japan, and she was delighted to have her photo taken looking through one of his albums.

All three agents will start work this summer with the new album of cartoons in English, "Le Cat" a companion volume to last year's "The Bible according to Le Cat".
We wish all three agents lots of luck, and we encourage you, Dear Reader, to keep following the News here to find out what happens next...
JUNE 2014 - LE CAT IN JAPAN
Yes, it's a long way from Brussels to Tokyo (and it's even further coming back if you keep going east...) but that's where Le Cat is right now - preparing to publish his cartoons of wit, wisdom, spiritual reflection, and logic turned upside down.
At the Belgian Embassy he had a meeting with Ms Yuko Miyake - Head of Brussels Invest and Export, Japan, and Ms Yuka Morita - Head of AWEX, Japan.
And your reporter was there to collect all the tidbits of news and info...!
The two Japanese ladies very helpfully told him of the actions, events and support they could provide when his albums are published in the Land of the Rising Sun!
A successful meeting indeed, and Ms Miyake (L) and Ms Morita (R) happily posed for photos with copies of Le Cat's albums.
So - after the USA, India, and Mexico, Japan is the latest stop on Le Cat's Going Global Tour. Where will it be next? Follow these pages...!

FEBRUARY 2014 - THE CAT MEETS MORE "INTERESTING INTERNATIONALS"...
After Belgium's Ambassador to the U.N. and the European Commission's Vice-President, more "Interesting Internationals" meet The Cat as he continues his tour of India.
Latha Reddy (pictured left), former Indian Ambassador to Portugal, Thailand and Austria, and until recently India's Deputy National Security Advisor, took delight in reading "The Bible" before leaving India for Paris and an international conference on cyber-security. So watch out you hackers... Latha and The Cat are watching you!
Josi Jacob (pictured left), translator of Arundhati Roy's international best-seller, "The God of Small Things", came all the way from Kerala to meet The Cat, and to discuss the new translations of his cartoons into English. Josi translated Arundhati's book from English into Malayalam, the language of Kerala. As you can see from our photo, she clearly finds them hilarious!
Keep watching The News for more on The Cat - as he continues to go global...
FEBRUARY 2014 - THE CAT GOES TO INDIA
Our reporter accompanies The Cat on his first trip to India... and discovers that his reputation precedes him!
12/26/2013 - THE CAT GOES EUROPEAN
The Cat's speechwriter tells all...
It was The Cat's Europe week...
Philippe Geluck first told the speechwriters of the European Commission how he writes The Cat's speeches, and how their close, complicitous relationship could be a good model for the speechwriters and the European Commissioners whose speeches they write. The title of the talk was "Communication of Minds" and The Cat thought this was very clever. With humour and much mirth, stories were told, examples shown, and a good time was had by all.
The Commission, The Cat, The Communication
The following day Philippe Geluck and Alan Ward - the translator of "The Bible according to The Cat" - entertained the 300-strong audience at the Annual Meeting of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Communication. Amidst gags, jokes and cartoons, they gave their ideas on communication, and showed how Geluck draws on all his forms of artistic expression (actor, artist, TV and radio host, programme creator, comic ...) to communicate different messages to different audiences.
To end the show, Philippe and Alan launched into "Translating the Untranslatable" (another title The Cat thought very clever ...), and showed how the 'untranslatable' "La Bible selon Le Chat" had managed to be adapted into English using a whole bunch of imaginative devices and creative cleverness - illustrating once again they that communication is about keeping your audience in mind and using all your creative imagination to get your message - or funny story - across.

12/17/2013 - THE CAT KEEPS GOING GLOBAL...
The Cat continues his World Tour, meeting celebrities and key political figures and spreading The Word of The Cat.
After visiting Belgium's Ambassador to the Unitied Nations in New York (See news item of 11/19/13), it was a logical next step for him to meet a leader of the European Union - and who better than Viviane Reding - Vice-president of the European Commission and Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental rights and Citizenship.
Mme Reding was delighted to receive a copy of "The Bible according to The Cat" from Philippe Geluck himself.
So who will be the next Lucky Leader to get The Bible? Keep reading these pages...!

11/28/2013 - THE CAT GOES ENGLISH IN THE VERY HEART OF FRANCE
Mumblings of "sacré bleu", "perfide Albion", "remembère Jeanne of Arc", and "he iz a traitor zis Geluck" could be heard from the long and patient crowd of CatFollowers at WH Smith's venerable bookshop in Paris to buy the Cat's first album in English, "The Bible according to The Cat".
But true to Gallic form, most fans refused to buy only the English edition and also bought the French one ("Pour la Patrie!", our reporter heard one elderly lady saying). The Sales Department of WH Smith's and Cat Inc™ were both delighted with this double sales bonanza.
The Cat's guardian, Philippe Geluck, had to be treated for acute 'signing-wrist-itis' after drawing bi-lingual Cats in so many albums. But he was happy to have planted the flag of The Cat in the heart of France, without being dragged away to the Bastille on charges of High Treason.
At the start of his "Go Global" mission, The Cat's first stop was the United Nations in New York, where he was welcomed by Belgium's Ambassador to the U.N., H.E. Bénédicte Frankinet.
The Cat presented Ambassador Frankinet with a copy of his new album, "The Bible according to The Cat", which she was delighted to receive. And being a clever and thoughtful feline, The Cat also gave the Ambassador a second copy for her staff.
Ambassador Frankinet and The Cat spent some time discussing world affairs, and when our reporter asked them about the rumours that The Cat would shortly be addressing the U.N. General Assembly, they made no comment, but a slight smile could be detected on both their faces.
So let's wait and see...
Ambassador Frankinet receives "The Bible according to The Cat" from... The Cat himself.
A first in the 30-year life of The Cat was the publication on 30 October of the feline's first original album in English, "The Bible according to The Cat". A spectacular launch party was organised at Waterstones bookshop in Brussels to celebrate this major event.
1. Because of my first sentence above...
2. Because it's the Cat's first "story album" -a real 192-page story and not a collection of cartoons‑.
3. Because of the story -the creation of the world by The Cat and his sidekick Steve the Sheep-, a tricky subject if there is one, and which is bound to attract controversy, despite it being clever, thoughtful, satirical... and very funny.
4. Because it marked the beginning of The Cat's journey out of Francophonia and into the Global Kingdom of Angloland.
Philippe Geluck addressed his followers in English -also a first- and actually made himself understood. Very well in fact. Congratulations Mr Geluck!
In a state of grace, they sang along
The evening began (in a very UN-signing-of-a-new-book-STYLE) with the performance of a "The Ballad of God The Cat", specially composed for the occasion by Gospel-Blues legend the Reverend Big Al Abama, fronting his band Phil & the Phelines. The line-up of Gospel singers Hope & Charity, children's percussion and Holy Water spray maestro Phil O'Stine, and Steve the Sheep on electric guitar (in his earthly manifestation, specially flown in from heaven for the occasion) carried the audience on a wave of devotion as they sang "Lordy, lordy, lordy, we are the children of the Cat" with the band.
The dawn of a new age
As the holy wine gradually stopped flowing, the flood of signings became a trickle, and the disciples drifted away into a new dawn, Philippe Geluck's CatTeam™ knelt and prayed for a blessed future, on this, the first day of the Age of the Global Cat.

Radio X - The Cat Philippe Geluck (podcast)
'The Bible according to The Cat'
Doubt is out! Light is the new Dark! 'The Bible according to The Cat' answers all the questions that have tormented humans since the dawn of time. And helps us understand why it's been such a bloody stupid waste of time doing nothing but massacre each other ever since.
This is Philippe Geluck's first full-length story, of the creation of the world by God Le Cat and his sidekick Steve the Sheep, and he invents a whole bunch of hilarious characters - human and animal. From the first living creatures (quite moronic and therefore destined to be wiped out) to Adam (only slightly less stupid), no creature escapes Geluck's scathing and hysterical graphics tablet. He nails the creationists and settles scores with those who would have us burn in hell. Yes, you can laugh at everything, and yes, it does you good to dust off the old dogmas because, as someone once famously might have said, God is Laughter.More
