Not nearly as "can't miss it" as it seems on TripAdvisor. I definitely could've done without it. I mean...it was pretty funny? I guess? But I don't see why it's on top as far as performances in Paris--unless every other show is just terrible? (I've only been to this one, so I don't know.) I just wasn't impressed. We bought... More

This is a really fun one hour and 10 minute one man show that really sheds some insight into the Parisian way of life. Olivier is great fun! We got same day tickets online at billetreduc discount right in the orchestra section. Some parts are rather sexual... (fyi in case you are thinking about bringing your kids along as I... More

Strange theatre process - doors open and you are shown to your seats after queuing outside for ages. Not like the UK, where you can go in at your leisure and maybe have a drink and relax. So the process made us stressed which maybe impacted on our enjoyment of the show. Undoubtedly a talented man, but I didn't always... More

Olivier is right all along, this is exactly how Parisians are... After 3 years living in the US, I came back for the holidays with my american boyfriend and as a Christmas present my mother offered us ticket to the show. My boyfriend was laughing out loud for an hour and got a chance to better understand the experience he... More

If you are in Paris, this hilarious show is something that you need to put on your schedule. I watched the whole show laughing my lungs off and remember about the jokes during the rest of my Paris trip. Worth of every penny!

If you have time in Paris, you have to go there! The show is very funny and the actor, Olivier is very good. The public also have an important role, since Olivier involves people continously! His way to talk is good so understandable also for people who are not expert in english! Then let's go!

At first I was a bit reluctant to the show, but I couldn't have been more wrong! You have to go and see it. No hesitation!

This is the strongest point on the agenda for each Paris visitor! It is not only a show, it is source of energy, great emotions and unconditional laugh! And be ready as it is extremely interactive;)! I was invited to the stage to perform with Olivier and enjoyed it very much. Now, I am coming back with my friends visiting... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

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.
