Really funny with Olivier's eccentric french accent and his hilarious expression! The show is about how to become parisien in one hour, which is made up by 7 sections. Each section is focused on mocking one aspect of the typical life of a Parisien. The show is mostly in English with a few phrases of French.

Really good time there and good show ! Sometimes this is so true... unfortunately for Paris people :) !! Even if you don't speak well English, this is quite easy to understand.

We decided on our last night in Paris to come see this show. We'd read great reviews through TA and thought we needed a good laugh. We were not disappointed, Olivier was hilarious. He definitely kept us entertained with his comedy and put a funny spin on Parisian life. One tip I can give you is that the theatre the... More

I first went to see Olivier Giraud perform How to Become a Parisian in One Hour in May, and this show was so riotous that I've been speaking about it and recommending the show to others every since. It was so funny I took my family (with teens) to the show in July, and they concurred that it was one... More

Being a French speaker and knowing the city quite well, I often am stopped and asked for directions which is great. People stumble with their French language and try and explain to me where they want to go. Of course I don't let on I'm an Aussie, well sort of anyway. If you want to become a Parisienne or Parisien... More

This show is so contagious don't be surprised if you start acting like a Parisian as soon as you exit the theatre. This is a one man show that seamlessly flows from one funny story to the next. (Note: If you are prone to get lost in the streets of Paris be aware that the exit from this show is... More

I must say I do look at the Parisians differently now. Many things he said were spot on. For mature audiences.

This is a very funny show, but should really be renamed. Yes, it was about Parisians, but it was just as much (if not more) taking the proverbial out of Americans. Olivier has lived in America and had all of the phases and sayings from America that the rest of the world find really annoying, and he used them frequently... More
