The show is in a lovely little theatre, so you get more of an intimate experience in which the audience is often asked to participate. M. Giraud has taken his very astute observations of the differences between Parisians and the rest of us and made...More

Great place to go to discover the show & comedy side of Paris. The venue is a cute little parisian theatre.

Comedy is totally hit or miss, and this, for us at least, was a hit. We were in Paris for just one night and knowing that I had done limited homework on what to do, figured we'd enjoy a show in English. Tip 1: Don't...More

Much like any comedy show, the comedy and content will either resonate with you or it won't. I enjoyed the show, my wife not so much, which is why I gave it a 4. The show itself wasn't laugh after laugh, but a mix of...More

Great show, I laughed a lot with Olivier. If you are in Paris, then it's a great idea to go ans see this guy. He will explain you how the typical Parisian is with so much humor. He has a especial energy also.

This was a very funny one-hour + introduction to some stereotypical characterizations of Parisians. It was in English, but when Olivier asked where everyone was from, there were answers from all over. The theatre is small enough that the audience was laughing the whole time,...More

I believe it came up a little short. This comedy had a lot of downtime between laughs. Although there were times we had a good laugh, the routine could have included more jokes and less time with facial expressions.

Dear Bob, Thanks for your review. I can see that you're a bit disapointed...but Olivier has a lot of facials expressions....I would consider it like a positive quality for a comedian but we completely respect your feelings. Very sincerely French Arrogance PROD
