Worth the hour. Bought our tickets at a discount at the FNAC booth. Had to buy the membership card for FNAC, but it still was cheaper overall.

Being a foreigner (Dutch) living in Paris, some friends told me to go see Olivier Giraud's show and I never regretted it. Olivier manages to express all stereotypes one might have about Parisians in an extremely funny way. Moreover, he also gives a keen critic on Americans! (and watch out, if you go see his show, he might make a joke about your home country and culture!)
Olivier makes speakable what a foreigner in Paris goes through every day and his show is simply hilarious. Very fast, good improvising and really interactive with the audience.
A must have seen for every foreign citizen, tourist and Parisian in order to see ourselves and our co-citizens in a new daylight!

This was absolutely the best one-man show that I've ever seen in my life! It perfectly pushed the boundaries of humour and made me laugh non-stop. I left wishing I could go watch the entire thing all over again. If you're in Paris, this is DEFINITELY the one piece of live theatre you should not miss!

Olivier is brilliant! He knows how to connect with a global audience, in excellent English, and with humor that had the entire theatre rolling from the first minutes. "How to become a Parisian" is a must-see, and a great way to spend 60 minutes! Even better if you can attend with someone who knows Paris and can translate a few things.
