Le Directeur de la Comédie is the title given to a short French play by an anonymous author, which was performed in French as afterpiece to Pygmalion (Rousseau) in the African Theatre on 29 October 1803, by the French Company, led by Charles Mathurin Villet. In both pieces the lead role was taken by Mr Delémery, possibly a visiting professional actor.

However, the title is perhaps wrongly cited by Bosman's source as "Le Directeur de Comédie", and may possibly be the well known play Monet
