“Great show”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Very good show - would recommend this highly to Parisian novices like ourselves. Booked online before we came, the theatre is very easy to get to by Metro. Overall I would recommend Olivier to anybody :-) Many different nationalities at the show, including many French people which was a surprise as the show is all in ENGLISH,,,,, a testament I think to his unique show

This show seemed like the perfect outing for two friends who both love Paris. Why not learn to become Parisian?

It was a great decision. This show is in a small, intimate theater and is laugh out loud funny. The comedian is Olivier Giraud and he makes fun of a lot of different nationalities; though it seems to be mostly Americans, English, French, and Parisians (as separate from all other French people). There are lots of Parisians in the audience, so it's not just for tourists.

He is a keen observer of behavior and isn't afraid to poke fun. Which means there is the potential to offend or cause a bit of cringing. But as long as you realize it's all in the spirit of fun and appreciation of the differences, you'll forgive yourself for laughing when you think you shouldn't have.

Olivier is also not afraid to move--his face or his body. His expressions are priceless and for some of the physical comedy bits you wonder how anyone could make those moves on a stage in front of other people. Oh, by the way, definitely not for children!

One of the funniest parts of the whole show? In the days following, witnessing Parisians behaving as he said they would.

Fabulous show. I'd see it again.

Fantastic show in English about how Parisians (may) behave in various situations (taxi, shopping, kissing...). Not to be missed !!
