Overall a funny show! the hour went by quickly. the audience was engaged and despite the pokes at the Parisians, residents of Paris and visitors were enjoying the show.

Overall this was a very funny show and the observations about Parisian mannerisms were spot on, we observed them the next week of our trip with a lot of laughs. I was not happy however about the sex content - my teens were very uncomfortable and there were small children in the audience so be warned if you plan to... More

an hour is much too short for this show :) the time flies by so quickly, it's a great mix of comedy/satire, flawlessly delivered by the very talented olivier giraud. we enjoyed every minute of it, ty for the pleasant and relaxing experience!

Have you lived in Paris for several years or just busted the city, for both kind people this show is great. The guy is funny and witty. In a high tempo he compares two opposite cultures (American - Parisian). But don't think you you can lean backwards when you are none of those two. Paris will never be the same... More

As a frequent visitor to Paris, I thoroughly enjoyed this show. The venue was a bit odd and hard to find but it was enjoyable.

So true!!!! If you ever wonder about French and Parisian people you have to watch this show! I lived there while in college and going back and seeing this show was just hilarious !! It a great way to spend a night and laugh until your belly hurts!

There are few shows that tourists can go and see in Paris, and it is a shame cause Parisian shows truly are a cultural French event. So if you are into discovering the French way of living or culture (and are not French bilingual), this is a must see. See France another way :)

A small theatre with cramped seating full of International visitors who 'speak English'. It can't be easy writing a script that makes Indians,Mexicans,Vietnamese,Brazilians,French and Mr &Mrs Large from Idaho all laugh at the same time.Our hero seemed to manage it though. For me it was excruciatingly bad.Unfunny to the point of embarrassment.Many observations could be applied to some residents of... More

I expected the show to be a lot funnier than it was. At times it was childish and mean. More time seemed to be spent on how ignorant Americans were and how fed up Parians are. But for the most part people seemed to enjoy themselves.

I spent a wonderful hour with Olivier and his comedy, it was very useful for me, being an expat, to better understand "les parisiens". Ohlala!!

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.
