Olivier Giraud is a good entertainer, we spent a very nice evening at the Theatte watching his standup show. He depicts very well the Parisians, the flaws of the Parisians. It can be sometimes a bit “crude” so if ever you are highly conservative you...More

I love this show. It was hysterical. However, I was with my mom and great aunt. It was definitely a little inappropriate for them! There are several references to sexual things, so it may not be best for younger individuals or conservative people. If your...More

The show is great, made us laugh the whole hour. What is hilarious is when you get in the metro after the show and you are like "OMG, he was right..." I recommend it.
