Fun and light show! Perfect for foreign visitors and was actually recommended to us by a local Parisian who loved it. It's just an hour, not a big time or financial commitment. FYI, not for young kids, we had to buffer just a few of...More

I'm not a huge fan of stand up comedy, but booked this as it had such good reviews but I was still sceptical. I can't remember laughing so much for a very very long time and my hands were sore from clapping by the end....More

My daughter and I spent a wonderful evening. An early tour of the theatre with the lovely Olivier followed by a glass of champagne. His show is hilarious, well observed and perfect to see a French man taking the micky out of his fellow Parisians....More

What a wonderful evening to get to know Paris better, in a relaxed and humorous way. Sitting around the table in conversation was really good

This play was so funny I cried. It's in English and a must see. A one man narration by Olivier Giraud, who explores what to do and not do in Paris. He covers a number of social situations: at a cafe, on the metro, shopping,...More

The performance started off slightly funny; however, took a turn for disgusting. We don't particularly find raunchy to be funny so we wished we would have done something else that evening.

My friend booked this as an Air BnB experience so we met with Oliver before and after the show. He has put together a very wry look, not just at Parisians but any nationality that may be in the audience. And the theater is quite...More

Merci for your nice comment! You right, there is a part about sexuality that's why we do not recommend it for kids under 16. Hope to see you soon! French Arrogance Producer.

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
