We enjoyed "How to Become a Parisian in One Hour." The one-man show was funny and irreverent. We laughed a lot and quoted it for the rest of our visit.
The theater itself was weird.
First, it was difficult for anyone with mobility issues. The website did not offer clues on accessibility, and after a flight of stairs, I had to give up my mobility device in the cloakroom, do the entire thing in reverse to get it back, then again through the theater to get to the other stairs we were allowed to use to leave the building. Then, there was a passive-aggressive sign at the entrance to the main auditorium claiming that "the only pay ushers receive was through tips." Why ushers were even needed for such a tiny theater (except to take away mobility devices) was beyond me. These ushers also brought several groups of people in throughout the play, up to 30 minutes after it had begun. Their flashlights and latecomers edging into middle seats seriously detracted from the experience of people who came on time.

It is an old, small theatre but very parisian. Booked online, seats # 72 and 74. Views from every angle are good; our seats were excellent.

Pretty good show although some of the asides and other comments were still in French so we didn't understand. The show had some funny parts and the presenter worked well with the audience. I would not bring children under high school age due to some of the presentation.

Prior to visiting this theater for the "How to Become Parisian in One Hour" show, I booked two tickets online for me and my guest. I thought by choosing the midrange ticket price that I'd have great orchestra seats. When I arrived to find out we were on the first row, I deeply regretted not buying the cheapest seats in the house.

I will never understand why the first row of any theater is considered premium seating. We were eye level with the base of the stage. If I craned my neck, I had a great view of the actor's feet. I was physically uncomfortable throughout the show and left with neck pain from straining to look up at him for more than an hour. The worst part was the complete disregard demonstrated by the theater staff who did nothing to accommodate us in a different area.

The lesson learned: Don't waste a dime on the midrange or premium ticket upgrades. This is a small theater and there really isn't a seat too far away. There is a whole row or two that is definitely too close.

A great show to see was Olivier Giraud's "How to be a Parisian in one hour" This is a fully English speaking comedy show that pokes fun at locals. We enjoyed this more than probably going to Moulin Rouge.

We had booked and pre-purchased the tickets online 3 months ahead of the date. This is an English language play in.....Paris. Genial. This is a very popular event and the weekend will sell out very quickly. At the theatre the evening of the play, a theatre well located by the historic "REX" on Poissonière, the line for tickets and to get in stretches down the boulevard. With the online purchase, we walked by that line and practically straight to our seats. Excellent seats; all good seats in that theatre.
The play, one-man show, is quick pace and quite hilarious and as stereotypical the Parisian is portrayed, we actually tried in our everyday in Paris some of the actions and it worked!! We got to pose for pictures with the actor who was very accessible after the show.

We recommend. Excellent play and a very nice "cultural" introduction to Paris.

The one man show is bit exaggerated but this is part of the fun. The show is geared towards English speaking people living in Paris and how to behave like Parisians. The interaction with people and jokes made are so funny and you would burst into tears from laughter. The only draw back is the inability to book your seats. Overall highly recommended

We came over specifically to see this stand up comedian Olivier Giraud and 'How to become Parisian in one hour'
We were not disappointed, multinational audience, including some Parisians, laughing along to his take on behaviour in the city. Well worth seeing.

My wife and I went to see this show a few nights ago when in Paris. The Theatre de Nouveautes is a funky small venue and a nice place to take in a show. The seats are small - definitely made for Europeans :) but there would be no bad seats in the house at least that we could see. (The seat width was fine for us fortunately - just pointing out these would not accommodate an overweight person).

Olivier Giraud is a very good physical comedian. He sings, dances, makes impressions of people from various countries, and makes very funny faces. He puts on a good show and we found it very entertaining. There is audience participation so be forewarned a few people may be called to the stage. You could tell it was a date night sort of show and as everyone else has written, the content is for adults.
