Les Enfoirés, the long-running televised benefit concert in aid of the Restos du Cœur charity, has been an annual fixture in the French schedules since 1992. Existing academic accounts of the concert have highlighted the diversity of its performers and a sense of solidarity, unanimity and consensus. Drawing on archive research carried out at the French broadcasting archives (Inathèque, Paris), this article shows how television coverage of the Enfoirés concerts over the last 25 years has reinforced and problematised the television variety genre, gender identities and the French Republican model.
