He worked as an accountant in Rouen.[2] After his military service, he moved to Paris. He married Mariotta Claire in Neufchâtel-en-Bray in 1902.[3] He had the luck one day to replace a sick actor in the Théâtre des Mathurins and made a name for himself with his comic stammering.

He died in Ville-d'Avray on 21 February 1942, from a heart attack.[4]
