We didn't have expectations but if we did, he would have surpassed them. We are still laughing about things he said a month later.

As this comedy sketch is done in English it was a must see for a French man to poke fun at how the French behave. To keep up the pace and as a one man show it was so effortless for him. There was interaction with the audience. I could highly recommend it for the price and the show. The... More

This is a funny show but not world class. He contracts Parisians with all other national stereotypes in a funny way. A fair bit of sexual content, so not for children. Kind of Medium on the scale. The Theatre is very old and quirky - nice place full of Character.

We have seen the big shows at extortionate prices in Paris. We spotted this and booked online for a very reasonable sum. I have to say it was excellent, great fun, and I even ended up on stage at the end! The show is well organised and very engaging. Well done Olivier, great evening.

A pretty funny one-man show playing on the stereotypes of Parisians (or any metropolitan dwellers really) and tourists. No need to get there early, as they make you queue out in the sun.

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.

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.
