A friend and I went to see this because it was recommended by a friend. Apparently the show is successful - so he told us. The reviews on here seem to say similar but we were both soooo surprised that this is the case! There are a few funny parts but generally we found it quite standard, exploiting the shock... More

Great show with spot on characteristics of parisians. In fact we went to cafe after and experienced the waiter . The phhff, the shrug and the mouth. This is the show if you really want to know what makes parisians tick. Laugh out loud funny

From the time this show started until it ended we were all laughing. It showed exactly what Parisians were like -- without being hurtful in any way. It was just a fun time in a glorious city.

A great comedy show for your Parisian visit. The actor is well animated and has fun making fun of the cultures in Paris. Go enjoy yourself!

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
