Victor Boucher was born in Rouen in a house on the rue Saint-Étienne-des-Tonneliers. His parents had a café-restaurant in Bihorel. Educated at the école Bellefonds in Rouen, he began acting in youth groups.
He worked as an accountant in Rouen. After his military service, he moved to Paris. He married Mariotta Claire in Neufchâtel-en-Bray in 1902. 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.
In 1927, he became a director of the Théâtre de la Michodière. He was president of the Association des artistes dramatiques.
He died in Ville-d'Avray on 21 February 1942, from a heart attack.
