Stand Up Comedy Show in French by an American! What is it like to live in France after the taste of cheese has become bland, when you don't have time to visit the Louvre, when you start to actually understand what the French are saying ? Influenced by Woody Allen, Jerry Seinfeld and Louis CK, Sebastian has decided to share his expat experiences in an comedy show which is so funny that even the French find it "not bad". Girls, work, terrorism... Living the French Dream is not always as smooth and creamy as foie gras.

If you are a show advertising and catering to visitors, perhaps one shouldn't insult them? On a chilly, dark Paris night, the venue would only admit those who bought drinks at the bar. I did. The rest of the crowd was left standing on the...More

Funny, entertaining and well worth a visit! The show had me laughing throughout and I would highly recommend it. It is located on a moored boat on the Sein which is a great experience in itself too!

As Sebastian's opening act, a French woman named Swan, was downright insulting towards Americans in the most tiresomely cliché way. If you thought you were coming here to hear comedic observations about the French from the point of view of an American in Paris, prepare...More

Woody Allen is now up-to-date, funny and anti-depressant! Sebastian Marx is better than the drugs given by a pharmacist ! Let's go and have fun!

I understand that comedians change their material from night to night. I can only assume that is why I found several reviews on this site that said Mr. Marx's presentation was fun and acceptable for the whole family. This was definitely NOT the case the...More

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may

Hello. Thanks for your interest in the show. The show will change venues and dates starting in April. I still don't know which dates will be available in June. Once I know, I will put them up on the site. Best regards.
