STAND-UP COMIC Dieudonné M’bala M’bala, 47, known professionally as Dieudonné (god-given), haunts the front pages of France’s major newspapers and news magazines. And apart from the French president’s amours, television and radio talk shows debate little else than his challenge to the authorities and to French society in general.Once a trendy and respected comedian, Dieudonné, the son of a black African father and a white French mother, first dabbled in politics when he stood unsuccessfully for parliament in 1997 as an anti-racist candidate opposed to extreme-rightist JeanMarie Le Pen’s National Front (FN) party.
