Roger and Max Jendly

Has anyone ever heard of Roger Jendly or Max Jendly.
They are both my cousins, and my father told me that they are both pretty well known in CH. Roger is an actor/comedian of some sort, and Max is a jazz pianist.

Re: Roger and Max Jendly

Google is your friend

The French Wikipedia has a brief biography of Roger Jendly, born in Canton Fribourg March 8, 1938 (according to Wikipedia, see below).

Last year he was awarded the prix culturel 2006 de l'Etat de Fribourg, bio in article claims he was born in 1940 (details, details ...). The following may help you locate him:
Quote:
Roger Jendly poursuit aujourd’hui ses activités de comédien et de créateur dans le canton de Fribourg. Ainsi, il sera associé, durant la saison 2006-2007 à deux productions du Théâtre des Osses.
I would guess that someone with access to a Fribourg phone book could get his phone number.

As for Max Jendly, according to the Big Band du Conservatoire de Fribourg site:
Quote:
Le BBCF (Big Band du Conservatoire de Fribourg), placé sous la direction du pianiste, compositeur et arrangeur Max Jendly, a été créé en 1991 sur l’initiative du Service de la culture du Canton de Fribourg.
If you dig deeper into that web site I suspect that you will find some kind of contact information. Again, a Fribourg phone book should provide an answer.

Re: Roger and Max Jendly

Oh, no, I think you might have misunderstood me.

I know who they are. They are my cousins. Max and I keep in good contact, I actually talked to Max on the phone today, which prompted me to create this thread. Though I have not heard from Roger in a long time.

My question was have any of yall Swissies heard of them. Because my parents told me he his like the Dane Cook of the alpes, though I do not believe he is quite that good.

With a fair number of exceptions we're not the Swissies, we're the expat Brits, Indians, Serbians, Croations, Irish, Amercians, etc, etc .

I've been here 5 years. Never heard of them but I haven't heard of Dane Cook either.
