I didn't stop laughing from the moment Olivier walked on stage. He has absolutely nailed life in Paris. This show is absolute quality and the historic theatre is wonderful. Because the theatre is small, the show is intimate with lots of audience participation. I would see this show again in a heartbeat, it was incredible value. Try not to sit... More

My wife (from Thailand) was concerned that she would not be able to understand Olivier Giraud's show, but we were pleased to see that it was mostly in english, and facial/body expressions were as funny, or more so, as his words. He talks & emotes about living, shopping, eating, travelling, etc, in Paris. He sprinkles jabs about other nationalities and... More

Even if you have no experience with the French in general and Parisians specifically, you'll enjoy this very stereo-typical rendition of how to become a Parisian. Sometimes a little bawdy, but always on target, This one-man-show walks you through how to pull off being a Parisian! This show is hilarious and audience participation is required! Be sure to find the... More

We bought tickets on Saturday for the same evening. No problem on the website. I think you have a great view from every place in the theatre. So don't worry to much about the seats =). The show was really funny and the actor is a sympathic man with a great english for a french man ;). The shows takes... More

Our daughter is currently doing her internship in Paris and was recommended this show so she took me and my husband this weekend. As per the title this is a short one man show but a great early evening treat. He takes us through an hilarious set of observations including how the natives dress, dance, use the metro, shop, order... More

This one-man show starring Olivier Geraud gave us a wonderful hour and a half of laughs. Giraud’s expressive eyebrows and lips provided an amusing insight into Parisian attitudes. Audience participation twice during the evening was a special hit. We were lucky to have talented and enthusiastic people volunteer, the gal from Chicago and the guy from Brisbane. We found the...

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
