It is a must see show. Excellent and funny show that tourists and residents in Paris as well should see. It gives tourists a quick funny idea about the Parisian lifestyle and entertains them while beginning their eve with a laugh

Excellent show. Good fun and you certainly learn basic Parisian quickly. I've clearly already forgotten it since, if I were truly Parisian, I wouldn't have bothered writing this review. He's bringing the show to Leicester Sq and I would highly recommend a visit if you have the chance.

My husband and I laughed throughout the entire show. This one-man show is great for international audiences and the comedian does a good job of including many nationalities in his act. This is not a show for children, and is a great option for an evening out if you want to do more than just dinner.

This is an amusing way to spend an hour - lots of laughs and interestingly 75% of the audience on the night we were there, were Parisian! Warning - don't sit near the front or you may end up on the stage to the amusement of the rest of the audience! And after the 7-8pm performance there is still lots... More

A great moment, lots of laughs and an hilarious actor. Not only were the dialogues and the acting good but it was great that Olivier Giraud played with the public

Great way to get a little bit of the 'Parisian flair' in particular if you don't have too much time to spend in Paris. After one hour I was 'graduated' as an authentic Parisian (check my photo with the performer). Good laughs.

I really wanted to like this show, and perhaps my expectations were too high. The guy is entertaining, but I really do feel like it would have been much funnier as a fast-paced sketch rather than a whole show. (Of course, then it wouldn't have become an actual attraction, among the top-rated on TripAdvisor no less.) I'm possibly influenced by... More

Very funny show about how the parisians behave and why! Highly recommended to all tourists..this is one of the few ways you can understand parisian culture quickly...you will identify with all the parisian behaviour discussed in the show, since you would have experienced it on your holiday for sure. And the next time you experience the same thing it will... More

This is funny, adult entertainment. Oliver Giraud is a great comedian and brilliant author of his own show. As shocking as some of the content was, we really enjoyed the show. The audience was very international and no one gets away. Oliver Giraud pokes fun at everyone, and especially the Parisians! Don't take your kids if they are under the... More

we really enjoyed the show. it was entertaining, quick witted. we would recommend it to english speaking couples as a way to spend a fun evening. The venue is nice and gives a taste of the Parisian old time luxury. Olivier is able to involve people in the audience from all over the world. He is full of energy and... More
