A VERY FUNNY ENTERTAINER

Kept us laughing and taught us a lot on how to become a Parisian. Exaggerated, of course. We found the Parisians to be very nice.

Hilarious show. Amazed at how many French people in the audience. I had thought we should see this earlier in our holiday but we couldn't go until our last night. This worked out to be for the best as it meant we really understood the jokes. A little risque in parts and some bad language so may be inappropriate for... More

I would recommend that you spend a few days in Paris before seeing the show to understand the jokes.

Very entertaining show.... and if you already know the French it is even funnier ! Olivier Giraud is a clever performer with amazing stage presence...it is pretty much impossible not to laugh at his spot-on observations and mimicry.

Olivier is very funny and we enjoyed this show. I'd recommend you be in Paris for a few days to really get all the jokes. It was awesome to see Parisians act like Olivier stereotyped in the days we were in Paris following the show. So funny! The audience was from all around the world, but it seemed like the... More

We really got a kick out of this man poking fun at the Parisian demeanor! How true it was! Not just a show for tourists as many Parisians were at the show and got just as tickled as we did!

There were moments in this show that were clever, but, all in all, it was demeaning and crude. On the positive side, the comedian had wonderful facial expressions and did include the audience in part of his routine. On the negative side, the show was pretty raw--it definitely is not a show for the faint of heart or for children... More

We didn't have expectations but if we did, he would have surpassed them. We are still laughing about things he said a month later.

As this comedy sketch is done in English it was a must see for a French man to poke fun at how the French behave. To keep up the pace and as a one man show it was so effortless for him. There was interaction with the audience. I could highly recommend it for the price and the show. The... More

This is a funny show but not world class. He contracts Parisians with all other national stereotypes in a funny way. A fair bit of sexual content, so not for children. Kind of Medium on the scale. The Theatre is very old and quirky - nice place full of Character.

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.
