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.

Not much to add. Olivier is hilarious. Some of the sex related stuff may offend you if you're conservative. One big negative - despite paying for 1st class seats two of us were allocated the folding / aisle seats.

What a show! I went twice as it was one of the funniest things I've seen in theatre! The exxagerations of the american and french characters are hilarious!

When travelling on the metro it's every man or french man in this case for themselves
Just push and shove to get on during peak hour or the doors will just close on you and crush you. Just say pardon and be polite about it. French people are all basically polite and civil.
They are not arrogant as many would like you to believe.
And smoking is a must as everybody seems to be smoking in France. We saw school children on an excursion smoking with the teacher present.
Eat lots of yummy pastries from all the Boulangeries and don't forget the daily baguette.

very funny how Olivier integrates the public in his scenes and is joking about the stereotypes of the different nationalities.
The show only lasts 70 minutes which is good as the seats are terribly small and uncomfortable. But it is part of the charm of this nice and typical theatre.
We didn't feel that the actor has already played this show more than 900 times. We definitely laughed a lot, and of course you really don't need to speak perfectly English to understand the show, it is really easy to get.

A slick performance but with a good dose of improvisation -the audience laughs from beginning to end. Good fun, even the second time around. And more and more French people in the audience....
