British and American forces rendez vous in Paris every Saturday night at 9:30pm. Their mission: to make you laugh. Approved by the Queen and endorsed by the President of the United States of America, it's the British American Comedy Night! Every Saturday the SoGymnase in the heart of Paris plays host to the finest British and American stand up comedians in Paris. The show is easier to understand than cricket, healthier than a cheeseburger and funnier than both. It's the best of British humour combined with sharp and edgy American comedy, guaranteed to create an unforgettable evening that will have you laughing way past your bedtime. Book in advance and your 10 euro ticket comes with a drink!

As a French girl living in the UK, I can weirdly relate to most of their experiences (the other way round) and I loved it! Different acts, different humours...one big laugh!

It was a great show, great variety of acts from different countries, and the energy stayed high start to finish. There were some really funny people, had me laughing about a few of those jokes long after I left!

They made my day! I laughed so hard, my cheeks were hurting. Really! Definitely a must-see... they totally understood France and French people, and it's good to laugh at them (yup, I'm French). Go go go!!

This was a really fun night out, stand up comedy the way it should be: quick, caustic and very funny. The MC for the night (Tom Morton) was on great form, full of energy and sarcasm. The 5 acts he brought on were a mixture...More

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
