But if you take good care of it, you get through it without any after-effects.” he confided.

If Gérard Majax had never talked about it before, it’s because he believes that “if you stay in a wheelchair after an illness it’s interesting to talk about it but here it’s an illness that comes like that .” For his part, it was a carotid vein that became blocked and caused him problems. “In the morning when you wake up everything is fine and then suddenly your fingers no longer move, you no longer feel anything.” he explained to the host.

Enough to seriously handicap him in his profession. “Doctors will tell you that if your hands are shaking, there is no way to cure it. They call it essential tremors unlike common ones. I’m lucky not to have had this but it’s a disease that can happen to anyone. I have always had tremors but it is linked to emotion.” he said.

Note that during his visit to C8, Gérard Majax also spoke of his poor retirement. “Oh well, that’s pathetic… At the time, when I was doing cabarets, touring, etc., we gave you a declaration, a ‘paid’ stamp and then that’s it, so it doesn’t add up to much for pension organizations”, explained the 81-year-old conjurer. With 1,500 euros in retirement, Gérard Majax explained that he was forced to continue working to live. “It’s nothing, but I’m working. It’s good, it forces me to work!” he concluded.
