Olivier Giraud is simpll brilliant. Had us in splits almost from the word go with his humour and facial expressions. And as he predicted, we are still laughing about the show and remembering him several days later. A wonderful way to spend an evening in Paris. The only downside was the theater seats which we found a bit cramped.

I'm so glad we watched the show! It was really great. Olivier Giraud has the talent. His face was amazing and so funny. Thanks a lot Olivier Giraud!

On a whim the Brissies ( including the 3 teenagers) went to the 6 pm Sunday show. Not side splitting but certainly amusing and well worth going. For the cost and an hour in Paris Olivier Giraud is worth seeing. I could accept his claim that he has done more than 900 shows. I am not easily amused but it... More

Olivier was great...He made us laugh so much and made our trip much more fun. Glad we watched the show in the beginning of our visit to Paris...We would definitely watch it again and again...Funny that most of the audience was French. Best time in Paris!! C'est Bon Olivier, :-)

The exhibit compared Impression, soleil levant from Monet with others to estimate when he made this painting, which gives its name to this period of art. The museum itself is wonderful to visit since it is set in a truly lovely mansion. Traveling by metro from the centre of Paris meant taking a correspondance to change to another line followed...

Get one of the guides from newparistours.com, I personally recommend Inga or Roberta, and learn what Parisians do and what they did in the past... There is no better way to learn about life of Paris and Parisians, then these local guides... I admired them!

Read mixed reports, think this is an excellent comedy if you have lived or tried to live badly in Paris and struggled with life, if not then perhaps it will become a bit lost.

Have a chocolat chaud at Angelina (now it is always crowded), have a walk at le Jardín des Tuileries and go to Colette and the Café de la Paix!

This was my second time seeing Olivers show - the first time was in a very small theatre in the early days in the 11th district in Paris. The jokes haven evolved a little bit but not too much, the act remains very funny and draws on all the stereotypes of Parisians, cleverly turning them into a lesson of do's... More
