Olivier Giraud will teach you how to act like a true Parisian in this one man show. It's not all about the Parisians: Americans, Mexicans and many others will get their share. And the show is not just for tourists, many Parisians and other French...More

My husband and I had a good time watching and laughing through out the show! To my pleasant surprise, half the theatre was filled with Parisians who enjoyed the humour about Parisians. Overall a wonderful experience!

The show is good, but a bit repetitive, and the material is not really sufficient for 1 hour. But all in all a quite good show.

We had a lot of fun watching Olivier, he is very quick on his feet, very witty, a little smudgy and extremely funny. Very slapstick-like humor, my Korean girlfriend found it extremely funny too. Thank you. Okay for late-teenagers, but not for (American) kids.

We went to watch the show after struggling with French in the big city! It was a huge relief to go to an English show about Paris and I commend the theatre for allowing Olivier to perform there. Olivier is entertaining, a bit risqué, and...More

Be ready for an abundance of laughs; wherever you are from or about; some of these jokes will be about you and you will laugh even more! Olivier Giraud is definitively a talented actor.

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
