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...

The audience came from everywhere, including many French. The performer's monologue and dancing are wonderfully entertaining as he jokes about Parisians. other Frenchmen, Americans, Brits, and others. The theatre seats are small and tightly packed, but not a real problem for this hour-long show.

Amazing show. We laughed so much, and 1 hour felt so short! There were few Parisians and French people at the show, and seemed like they enjoyed it too ;) We watched this show at the end of our stay in Paris, and it was great way to sum up our trip. Highly highly recommend!

A French colleague told me about this some time ago, but I never followed it up. With some spare time on a trip to Paris this time around, luckily enough there were some spare tickets which we snapped up, well worth it. If you want something a bit different, and will lighten your mood, highly recommended.

Our friend who lives in Paris organised tickets to this show for when we arrived. I was pleasantly surprised and thoroughly entertained. It was great to get some insight to the Parisian way... A must see for sure!

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.
