Laurent Ruquier (born February 24, 1963) is a French television and radio host, producer, and satirical comedian. He is also a lyricist, writer, playwright and producer of shows, and owns his own theatre. (P: Laurent Ruquier at the Casino de Paris in 2013)

Ruquier grew up in a large family of modest means. His father, Roger Ruquier, now deceased, was a boilermaker at construction sites in Le Havre and his mother, Raymonde Ruquier (born in 1924), was a housewife.

In high school, Laurent entertained his friends by publishing his first satires in the school newspaper. At first he studied accounting (he obtained a DEUG in Economic and Social Administration (AES) at the University of Le Havre and a Diploma from the Institute of Technology (DUT) in Business Management and Training administration (GEA).

He also attended a course in Constitutional Law given by Patrice Gélard. Upon the advice of the latter, he finally turned to humour. He did 21 months of military service as a conscientious objector at the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs.

His mentor was Pierre Doris, whose black humour he was particularly fond of.

Laurent Ruquier announced openly his homosexuality in the late 1990s.

He entered into a civil union on 28 January 2012 with the actor Benoît Petitjean, whose life he has shared since 2002.
