My daughter and I really enjoyed this show. It is just long enough and an excellent option just before or after a dinner in any of the restaurants nearby. The monologue is very funny and on point. Oliver has great energy and really puts his heart and soul into the performance.You can tell he is enjoying doing this, and he does it well. He involves the audience (I was picked on for saying crepes wrong!) in an honest and respectful way. The show is very reasonably priced and in a nice (not so touristy) area of Paris. I highly recommend this show. Five stars easy, go see it!!

Olivier is so observant, quick, intelligent and funny! He works well with the audience and keeps the program lively and engaging. This is the second time I've been and I would see this again next time I am in Paris. I just wish there was a DVD or something to bring home and show others!

We all had such a great time with Olivier, he was hilarious. We have been living in Paris for 4 years and his comments were right on point. He also joked about different nationalities and cultures from all around the world, no one is safe but always with a sweetness and a wink. I will definitively be back with out of the country guests and friends to share his show.

It's okay... having lived in Paris, there's some funny aspects to it but it's all a little bit cliched. Not in an offensive way, just in a way that was a bit more eye-rolling than laugh out loud funny. Perfectly okay for an hour long show, don't think we'd have wanted it to go on any longer than that though...

I had a laugh but a lot of the jokes were lame, cringe, and repetitive. Relies on outdated cliches. I hated the racial jokes. The impressions weren’t that great either. Also felt like the show was more about Americans than Parisians.

I've seen a lot of comedians in the US, Ireland and the UK and they were all a lot funnier than this guy. I felt like he was just rhyming off the whole act and it wasn't funny. I feel like maybe it would be funny for french people but not for foreigners. I have a good Irish sense of humour but this wasn't my style of comedy at all. I think it's definitely not worth 25 euro per person, and it was a very short show, just 1 hour long. Very disappointing.

Dear Eillis, Thank you for your review ! I'm feel sorry that you didn't like my show. I'm surprised when you say that the show is not for foreigners ? Close to 1 million spectators came to my show and half of it are foreigners... Everyday, i receive mail from my spectators telling me that their vision of paris and parisians changed after my show and that's my reward. Have a great day Sincerely, Olivier

Fantastic. Olivier is a true comedian. We loved his show and now recommend it to all that we know. A truely unmissable experience if you´re in Paris. Hilarious facial gestures and accents. Keep it up Olivier!!!

We did not find this entertaining or humorous at all. In particular the OTT impersonations of Americans and outrageous facial expressions reminded us of a sectioned patient. Not funny at all. Most comedians think they need to spice up their act either with swearing or sexual innuendos. He had to utilise both. Shame. The title sounded promising. In line with other negative reviews left, I fully expect retaliation from Olivier, rather than treating reviews as food for thought.

Dear Trip advisor user, Thanks for your review. I'm feel very sorry that you hated my show..... Sorry for my horrible facial expressions but that's how my face moves, surgery can help but i'm scared of the result....I understand you don't like swearings but i teached to 800 000 spectators How to become a parisian in one hour? and Parisians love swearing as much as English people like lamb with mint jelly....Concerning the sexuality part (5 minutes), i only explain the sexuality between parisians, and i'm sorry to tell you that this part is the most succesful so I'm not ready to remove it. Enjoy Paris, Warmful regards from the city of love Olivier

Don’t waste your time or $$. It was mediocre at best when it wasn’t offensive to the French people and all other cultures. We’d put the money we spent here next time towards the NY TIMES wine, cheese,bread and chocolate tour. You will enjoy it much more and our guide was way funnier than this guy. Too bad It t didin’t Work out with the 85 year old in Palm Beach....Then we would not have had to suffer through his show. Yawn!

Dear Sir or Madam, I feel very sorry that you didn't like the show at all ! Do you really think i'm offensive with other culture ? It's a show about cultural differences...Every night, 600 people (from 30/40 different countries) come and enjoy the show and everybody undersand that it's only humour....Enjoy the wine and cheese in Paris.....You'll see, they are great !

I saw this show twice within 3 months with Swedish and German friends and everybody loved it. I enjoyed it on the second time as much as in the first time (pretty rare to be honest).
Besides, the theater is in the very centre of Paris so you can hang out in the zone before or after.
Definitely a must-do for every visiting people in Paris (and also for the parisians).
Thanks Olivier.
