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.

The show hasn’t even started and I’m having doubts. The air conditioning is inadequate and none of the bathrooms have hand soap or toilet paper.

Highly recommended to visit. As a tourist I spend most of the time walking around, so going there was a lovely break in between. Giraud is very funny and I loved his interaction with the odience.
