Les 2 Minutes du Peuple ("The 2 Minutes of the People") is a series of comedic radio skits by Quebecois humorist François Pérusse. Its Quebec French version debuted on radio in 1990, and its French version in 1996.

Each skit is about two-minutes long, and tackles subjects such as everyday situations, the life of historical characters, current events, and parodies of TV shows, game shows, songs, and celebrities. The series dialogue is a never-ending Hurricane of Puns mixed with some Surreal Humor, and is most remembered for its sped-up high-pitched voices, which enforced its Rapid-Fire Comedy.

The series has received numerous awards, and has become a staple of Francophone culture. It has notably been parodied or referenced by numerous Audio Plays.
