What a fun show! After a long day walking around the city and seeing the sites, it was fun for my husband and I to grab a bite to eat and have a drink before stepping into a delightfully small theater to watch a hilarious show. It is a hidden gem and I nice break from feeling like a tourist.... More

We went to Paris with no specific plan. My wife took those tourist guides and started looking to make a plan of sightseeing and things to do. As someone else mention, you need to start your visit with this show... Very easy going, hilarious and good interaction with the people.

Visiting here on your first night in Paris is essential. Parisians are unique in France. Watching Olivier (one of their own) making fun of the stereotypes is great fun and makes your trip more enjoyable too. We found that whenever we came across these characters, instead of getting annoyed we just laughed and accepted them. [From the waiters to the... More

I believe this might be the only English talk show in Paris. Hence, it gives me a chance of enjoying and understanding a French talk show. Moreover, Olivier demonstrates the major differences between typical Parisians and foreigners, with a sense of humor. Everyone, including myself, enjoy the show very much. Thanks Oliver, thank-you for introducing Parisian life style to me... More

This show is hilarious and super entertaining from the beginning to end. Olivier playfully and accurately describes stereotypes about Parisians and compares them with other nationalities, focusing mainly on the striking differences between French and Americans when shopping, partying, eating in a restaurant, dating and other activities. He also invites a couple people on stage but does not embarrass anyone... More

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.
