Owner description: The ULTIMATE Parisian theatre experience, 100% in english, seen by more than 500 000 spectators! Hailed by THE NEW YORK TIMES as "Learning to be French through comedy!", Olivier Giraud will teach you how to act like a real Parisian in every situations encountered during your stay in Paris. Perfect night out surrounded by Parisians and a multicultural audience in a century old 600 seats theatre located in the lively heart of Paris ! Due to some jokes about 'How to understand the sexuality in Paris", we do not recommended the show for kids under 16 years old.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities

This one-man show is captivating, and Olivier masters very well the art of engaging the audience, leaving a very nice memory of this funny satire.
A must for tourists in Paris !!
The theater is unfortunately old, very small, seating extremely tight, and badly aerated.
It has it's character being authentic, but really, they need to secure a minimum level of decent comfort.

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 them extremely funny.
I would highly recommend this performance to anyone visiting Paris.

Dear Dorothy, thank you so much for this great feedback ! We are delighted to read that you enjoyed the show and the theatre! Indeed, the theatre of nouveautés (600 seats) allows Olivier Giraud to interact directly with his audience, which creates an unique atmosphere. Many thanks again for your warm review !
