We had a lot of fun watching Olivier, he is very quick on his feet, very witty, a little smudgy and extremely funny. Very slapstick-like humor, my Korean girlfriend found it extremely funny too. Thank you. Okay for late-teenagers, but not for (American) kids.

Be ready for an abundance of laughs; wherever you are from or about; some of these jokes will be about you and you will laugh even more! Olivier Giraud is definitively a talented actor.

The show hasn’t even started and I’m having doubts. The air conditioning is inadequate and none of the bathrooms have hand soap or toilet paper.

Highly recommended to visit. As a tourist I spend most of the time walking around, so going there was a lovely break in between. Giraud is very funny and I loved his interaction with the odience.

Oliver Giraud has a great show. He is keen to the alienation foreigners can feel when not fluent in a language. His show “How to become Parisian in one hour” is cleverly organized around a set of “common” how-to interactions: how to shop, hail a...More

The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

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
