By 1872 he was engaged at the Théatre de Châtelet and in 1873 at the Théâtre de l'Ambigu-Comique. He resided in Berlin for two years and after his return to Paris he was employed at the Folies-Dramatiques in 1879. From 1881 to 1884 he worked for the Gaîté and from 1894 to 1890 at the Théâtre de la Porte-Saint-Martin.

Another engagement at the Théatre de Châtelet and one at the Théâtre de la Renaissance followed. In 1911 a fall on a staircare prevented his return to the Théâtre de l'Ambigu-Comique. He died in 1913 in Paris and was buried at Père Lachaise. The bronze bust on his tomb was sculpted by Gustave Deloye.
