70 minutes
  • See the first (and best) English-language one-man show in Paris
  • Running for eight years and counting, this comedy hit has been enjoyed by more than half a million people!
  • Think of the show as a hilarious hour of intensive training, after which you too can be ill-tempered - Parisian-style

In this sidesplitting 70-minute English-language show, Parisian comedian Olivier Giraud will teach you how to dress, act and talk like a Parisian. All stereotypes are joyfully explored in this evening of jokes and audience interaction. Afterward, you'll dress cooler and be more aloof and attractive, but while watching, you'll be laughing your face off!

Are Parisians really as arrogant, short-tempered and snobby as their reputations? Parisian comedian Olivier Giraud thinks so! He even made this wildly popular show about it!

Presented as a series of lessons to help you learn how to behave like a real Parisian in a number of different situations - while shopping, on the metro, in a restaurant... this show takes aim at residents of the City of Lights, while poking fun at other cultures along the way.

You'll learn a little, and laugh a hell of a lot.

This was a funny take on some stereotypes in Paris, funny for both tourists and locals, who speak English. Short and to the point. Very entertaining.

Very funny, unexpected and so so true . A great run through of country stereotypes, not just French and Parisan's but also English, American Germany, Australia, and , and ....<br/> Be careful about taking under 14 children as some sketches a little close to mark, but we loved it and I even ended up on stage! So be warned

This is a fun-filled evening. I especially recommend it to people which are visiting Paris for the first time. I wished it was a little longer than a hour, but it certainly was an enjoyable hour !
