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.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities

What a guy and what an amount if energy in a short space of time. Defying the French language and likely to pay a price for it in French heaven this show is les chiens balls.

Just book any night and get yourself a good laugh.

Absolutely hilarious! And even more hilarious if you are bi-cultural/bi-lingual....although it would be hysterical regardless. Olivier is spot-on with his comical observations....especially with his French/American comparisons. Our French friends were equally entertained....we were all laughing so much we were crying... go and see it !!!!!

If you will be in Paris before the end of August you still have a chance to see this great one man show, all in English, about how a muster the necessary arrogance and indifference to fit in as a true "Parisian" while shopping, dining, hailing a cab, going to a club or making love. Sample advice: "If it's cold, wear a scarf. If it's hot, wear a scarf." Screamingly funny thanks to Oliver Giroud's antic physical comedy and range of facial expression. The surprise is that much of the audience will be French, but many countries will be represented. Just DO it. And put off dinner reservations until 10:00PM, which will be perfectly Parisian too.

My husband and I went to see this show on our recent trip to Paris. We were laughing the entire time! We laughed for days afterward as we kept noticing things mentioned in the show. As long as you can poke fun at yourself, you will have a great time. The show is in English, but many French were in the audience. I think this show would be enjoyable no matter where you are from. I would recommend this show for adults, as some of the jokes are not appropriate for children. The venue is right by the metro stop and easy to find. There is a small bar downstairs where you can have a drink before the show starts. Many cafes/restaurants are open in the area after the show if you want to have a later dinner.
