French jewish humorist and freemason.

During World War II, Pierre Dac was one of the announcers of the BBC's Radio Londres service to occupied France. He produced a series of satirical songs which were broadcast on the station. After the war, he participated in a comic duet with the humorist Francis Blanche.

Dac is also viewed as the creator of the comic term "Schmilblick," an imaginary object that is absolutely useless, and can therefore be used for anything. In French language the word was sometimes used as a synonym for thing or stuff, or something designating a strange or unknown object. Nowadays, it is frequently used to refer to some limited help provided by someone to solve a difficult problem.

He died on 9 February 1975 in Paris.
