What to expect
You are not alone if you believe that Parisians are short-tempered, impatient or arrogant. Celebrated French comedian Olivier Giraud agrees and has created this hilarious one-man show, performed in English, revealing the legendary stereotypes of Parisians. Your evening comedy show takes place at the Théâtre des Nouveautés, near Paris’ Grands Boulevards metro station. Take your seat in the section of your choice (see Additional Info for a seating chart). Please note: This show is not recommended for children under 16. Giraud nails the stereotypes of Parisians through impersonations and impressions of waiters, shop assistants, bartenders, and even your average old lady hobbling down the street. Plus, Oliver Giraud teaches you how to become Parisian in every way, including when to use those famous pursed lips and expressive eyebrows. Learn how to recognize Parisian facial expressions, how to dress and interact with others and how to use iconic French phrases correctly. You might just get called up on stage to try out your skills. Your eyes water from laughing so hard during this comical insider’s look at the local attitudes and gestures of typical Parisians that foreigners, expats and even Parisians themselves confess are spot-on.

Olivier Garoud does stand-up comedy quite well and managed to entertain us for an hour but we didn’t really learn a great deal about what being a Parisian really amounts to. His impressions were quite good, particularly the beggar in the Metro and the bored shop assistant. He seemed rather too keen on dancing. Why dancing had to come into so many of his routines wasn’t that clear.

Great show and great price!
We attended the show last week and thought Olivier did a great job. He makes fun of both Parisians and visitors in a good natured way. He's energetic and engages the crowd well. I was "privileged" to be the person be selected to be onstage to test how well we were paying attention to the show's lessons. Olivier was very gracious towards my questionable French. Despite me being someone who doesn't like being in front of people or the focus of attention, I thought it was a great experience. We will definitely tell our friends to catch the show. His book is hilarious too. Thank you Olivier!

It was a good show but I would not rate it as a must see. Tripavdisor rated this as a top show and I have to disagree. Not bashing the talent but when you have so much to see in Paris I would not put this one on my top ten

Dear Raymond, Thank you for your review ! I'm glad that you liked the show. I understand your point of you, there is so many things to do in Paris but it's hard to compare shows, monuments or restaurants. Enjoy Paris, Warmful regards from the city of love ! Olivier
