The performance started off slightly funny; however, took a turn for disgusting. We don't particularly find raunchy to be funny so we wished we would have done something else that evening.

My friend booked this as an Air BnB experience so we met with Oliver before and after the show. He has put together a very wry look, not just at Parisians but any nationality that may be in the audience. And the theater is quite...More

Merci for your nice comment! You right, there is a part about sexuality that's why we do not recommend it for kids under 16. Hope to see you soon! French Arrogance Producer.

Olivier's comments on Parisian might be a bit exaggerated but actually some characteristics appear on many metropolises in the world. Making people from all around the world laugh is not easy. P.S. Paris apartment is not small enough. Come and try in Hong Kong

We booked this show spontaneously just before the start and laughed a lot. The price is reasonable and the theatre was nice. I personally found the jokes a bit generic (typical national stereotype jokes) which also became a bit repetitive in the end to make...More

About the venue: Lots of posts remarked that the theater seats are cramped. I disagree. I am 6 feet 2, or 1 meter 90 cm, and I was perfectly comfortable. It is not the kind of stadium seating you'd find in new movie theaters, but...More

Great show. Very funny and so true about Parisians. Dress sense, mannerisms etc. Good interaction with the audience too.

It's very entertaining but one cannot fight the impression that Olivier Giraud had played in this a million times (which is probably close to true... ). It's still very funny and hence we can recommend it. One big caveat : the chairs are ridiculously small...More
