Frédéric Pagès has been working for the past 20 years as a journalist at “Le Canard Enchaîné”. He has been writing many humorous editorials, such as “The diary of Carla B.” or “mock interviews”.

He was a former teacher in philosophy and founded in 1996 the group “Botul”, of surrealistic inspiration, focused on Jean-Baptiste Botul’s thoughts, a mysterious thinker “about whom we know nothing”.

During the 90’s, Pagès was the singer of the band “The Dead Pompidous”.

He notably wrote, “Descartes and the cannabis”, “Philosophy or the art of keeping women’s mouth shut”. He also published “ The sexual life of Emmanuel Kant”, which was attributed to Botul.
