If you are a show advertising and catering to visitors, perhaps one shouldn't insult them? On a chilly, dark Paris night, the venue would only admit those who bought drinks at the bar. I did. The rest of the crowd was left standing on the...More

Funny, entertaining and well worth a visit! The show had me laughing throughout and I would highly recommend it. It is located on a moored boat on the Sein which is a great experience in itself too!

As Sebastian's opening act, a French woman named Swan, was downright insulting towards Americans in the most tiresomely cliché way. If you thought you were coming here to hear comedic observations about the French from the point of view of an American in Paris, prepare...More

Hello. Thanks for your interest in the show. The show will change venues and dates starting in April. I still don't know which dates will be available in June. Once I know, I will put them up on the site. Best regards.
