I believe it came up a little short. This comedy had a lot of downtime between laughs. Although there were times we had a good laugh, the routine could have included more jokes and less time with facial expressions.

Dear Bob, Thanks for your review. I can see that you're a bit disapointed...but Olivier has a lot of facials expressions....I would consider it like a positive quality for a comedian but we completely respect your feelings. Very sincerely French Arrogance PROD

If you have a great sense of humor and are not easily offended, you'll love this show. It's preformed in English and he involves his audience in the show!

Not just for the Paris Bobo's, I thought I'd give this show a try. It is in a lovely cosy theatre and I think any seat has a great view of the stage. Olivier is excellent, and the insights and script is very very funny....More

Great fun show. Very entertaining. A little risqué at times, but hey, it's Paris! We saw this show on our last night in Paris. Wish we'd seen it earlier. Lovely little theatre but you wouldn't want to be 6'4"! Plenty of eating options nearby.

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
