This show wasn't well advertised however we cam across it by accident. It was so funny, we laughed right through the show. Great to see a Frenchman mocking themselves and others and having the audience participate in the shows. I would recommend seeing this over any of the other more promoted shows such as Moulin Rogue.

So well done, such hard work, so funny. This is worth every second and every euro to see. A real moment in the theatre!

My husband is picky and generally a pessimistic person. He loved the show and was laughing the whole time! I loved it as well. We sat in the second row and had a great view...although you could probably sit anywhere and have a great view. The theater is small. Great show for anyone who doesn't speak French too well. The...

We watched the show on our 2nd night in Paris. Unfortunately I wasn't feeling very well that day but still didn't want to miss the show. We had pre-booked via Viator so our tickets were already at the ticket desk waiting for us so we didn't have to queue at all. We waited barely 5 minutes before being seated and... More

This show (which is performed in English) was recommended to us by a Parisian friend. The show has been playing successfully for over two years. Although audience members were visiting from all over the world there was a surprising majority of French people in the audience. The show is a funny and light hearted spoof on what passes for ‘normal... More

We are French speaking English people who live in France (not Paris), to be fair the Parisians do have a bit of a reputation even amoung the French! It was really funny, very observational. Olivier has a great accent. There is obviously bad language, so not for young kids. On the evening we went the audience comprised of mainly foreigners... More

This is a must see!!! Get your tickets online before you arrival in Pairs and ensure you go the very first day you arrive.. Its absolutely hilarious and at the same time absolutely true. It really explains alot about Parisians.

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

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.
