He also had success in comedies on the big screen, such as with ''Film/TheWingOrTheThigh'' (alongside the legendary Creator/LouisDeFunes). He ended up PlayingAgainstType in 1983 with ''Tchao Pantin'', which earned him a number of awards. Upon seeing that many people living on French soil could not afford food, he created the charity association "Les Restaurants du Cur" in 1985 (literally "Restaurants of the Heart" but meaning "Restaurants of Love"), commonly and familiarly known as "Les Restos du Cur".

* [[invoked]]FunnyCharacterBoringActor: Rather "unhappy" than "boring", as Coluche's close ones said about him outside of his stage and screen acts. He was depressed (specially after his friend, actor Creator/PatrickDewaere, committed suicide in 1982, with a gun that Coluche offered him no less) and sought escapism in alcohol, drugs, food, motorcycling and other things. Very much a RealLife example of SadClown.
