Louis de Funes (27 January 1983), born Louis Germain David de Funes de Galarza, was a popular French actor of Spanish origin, who is one of the giants of French comedy alongside Andre Bourvil and Fernandel. His acting style is remembered for its high energy performance, a wide range of facial expressions and an engaging, snappy impatience. He was enormously successful in several countries for many years, but remained almost unknown in the English-speaking world. He was only noted in the United States in 1974 with the release of The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob. In a 1968 poll, he was voted France's favourite actor.
