Olivier has all this energy and he is HILARIOUS! Your Paris experience will not be complete and fully defined, if without this show! :))))) More suitable for adults, if you know what I mean.

I went there with a group of friends from different countries and they all loved it. It is not always easy to find a fun show to see in Paris when hanging out with English Speakers but Olivier's show made us laugh a great deal...More

An amusing play on the 'stereotypes' of Parisians (and Americans, Brits, Chinese, and whomever else is in the audience). Truly comedic. Some of the jokes are might be uncomfortable to experience with your teen (sex jokes; but your teen will enjoy them too ;) )...More

Even if you're familiar with Parisian idiosyncrasy - you'll love Olivier's energy and delivery. And he's good looking!

If you don't speak French then going to the theater can be an issue in Paris unless you are looking for other sites such as a cancan. But this one man show was great. He poked fun at everyone and had all of us laughing...More

Warning hilarious, not for the faint of heart. Not making eye contact does not preclude you from being a part of the show. All in great fun though!

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
