This was a funny show. The price was reasonable and the theatre is so small that there is no need to get up close. The audience really enjoyed the show. Not the best show in the world but an enjoyable experience for sure.

the idea is good, but the script of the play is a little too obvious, and jokes are often lame and vulgar. Too bad. I had higher expectations and thought it would be funnier, but it always focused on cliché racist and sex-related jokes.

Absolutely hilarious & so on the mark about the experiences of adjusting to life in Paris! Olivier Girard is so over the top entertaining and yet gracious. He was in the lobby to meet & greet afterward, a novelty in todays world! So if you live in Paris and want to laugh at the everyday experiences or you just want... More

since I am french living in the US since a long time , i enjoyed the comparison between the two countries. Olivier is fun a little exaggeration but very true in his description of the french and the american behaviors in Paris

I went to see Olivier's show with my French partner. Having been exposed to French culture and the Parisian way of life, I can assure the show is a true and funny representation of the French!! Not only the jokes are funny but his funny faces and moves really make the show! Any English speaker in Paris should go and... More

After all the museums, gardens and historical sights, venturing out to an evening show was exciting for two senior women in Paris. The theatre was attractive and the operations efficient (booked tickets online, picked up tickets before shopping in the area popular with tourists, not scatchy at all, checked bags, ushered to seats by beautiful and no nonsense women, got...

I went to see this show with my sister and some friends, it was such an amazing performance that I could not stop laughing for the entire hour, it was funny, it was age appropriate for what I would say for a 13 year old, some parts were inappropriate but in a very funny way and you are warned before...

Our former French teaching assistant took us to see this show. I think we were all laughing until we were crying. He was very funny talking about comparing cultures and the things that seem funny when coming from a different culture. Great show!
