A slick performance but with a good dose of improvisation -the audience laughs from beginning to end. Good fun, even the second time around. And more and more French people in the audience....

we did enjoy some of the jokes of this show but did not find hit deserved to spend a hour there, when there is much more to do and see in the city. some stories were really into cliches.

My friend went along for this clever experience. Clearly you cannot become a Parisian in one hour-I know because I live in Paris-the most beautiful city in the world. But through words and actions and mannerisms, everything is explained in detail in how you should act if you want to play the part. In short-be elegant,sophisticated and know your way... More

Just visited Paris, staying with French friends, really enjoyed the show. Fully English language, really enjoyable, hard to beat for €19

We went having read the reviews on the basis it was raining and we didn't have much to do in the wet. We were frankly unsure about it but were pleasantly surprised. Yes, some of the material is obvious, but overall it was good observational humour and Olivier himself is personable and interacted well with the audience, and there were... More

We laughed all through the show. In English with a lot of nationalities there. A very funny comedian. We liked the fact that he met his audience after the show.

We went to see this one-man show on our last night in Paris. Olivier Giraud is a very funny ex-pat Parisian who enjoys making fun of Parisians and their unique ways. Extremely funny and improved by audience participation.

He puts on a hilarious show. I've gone to see it twice and it never disappoints or gets old. I would definitely recommend it for a group outing (not very appropriate for children, however). He had our whole group in tears laughing, awesome comparison of cultures. Highly highly recommend!
