Kad Merad has more than 70 films to his credit and thus has almost 90 million cinema admissions. Inseparable from Olivier Baroux, he collaborates on nearly 20 projects with the other half of the French comic duo "Kad et O" and encounters many popular successesin the 2000s alongside Christophe Barratier (Les choristes), Eric Lartigau (Mais qui a tué Pamela Rose?) or Dany Boon (Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis).

In 2006, he also won the César for best supporting actor for his performance in Philippe Lioret’s Je vais bien ne t’en fais pas and developed his career by going behind the camera in 2011.
