Owner description: The ULTIMATE Parisian theatre experience, 100% in english, seen by more than 500 000 spectators! Hailed by THE NEW YORK TIMES as "Learning to be French through comedy!", Olivier Giraud will teach you how to act like a real Parisian in every situations encountered during your stay in Paris. Perfect night out surrounded by Parisians and a multicultural audience in a century old 600 seats theatre located in the lively heart of Paris ! Due to some jokes about 'How to understand the sexuality in Paris", we do not recommended the show for kids under 16 years old.

It was a fun comedy although I had a little higher expectations based on reviews but still really enjoyed it. Wouldn't suggest taking kids to it though.

It's nice to see the French have a sense of humor when it comes to poking fun at them selves along with other nationalities. It didn't have me roaring in my seat but it was fun and it did have a few Parisians roaring in their seats. Olivier is also a nice guy and told us his story after the show which was a nice personal touch. Is it worth going to? Yes.

What a fun show! My mom had already been twice and liked it enough to bring me back with her for her third time. Very funny and entertaining... and even a bit enlightening. :) Also, you can find some cheeper tickets if you buy them last minute online (just do some google searches and you will find a few sites—we used ticketac.com).

In his non-stop, 1 hr stand up show, Olivier Giraud taught us how to say “oh-la-la” properly and a whole bunch of other cool stuff. Drawing on his experience living in the US as well as France, he connected with all of us masterfully. The audience from 20 different countries but mostly French loved ever minute. Seats were a little close, but who remembered once things got going. At the end, he shared with us how good it felt to look out at several hundred folks given that French producers had told him for several years that his idea for the show would never work.
