The community’s favourite show three years running! ‘How to Become a Parisian in One Hour’ sees no signs of faltering. Over 750,000 spectators have attended the show since its creation in 2009 and at least 30 nationalities are present in the audience each show. In just over one hour, Olivier Giraud takes his audience through a journey of essential lessons required to survive, if not thrive in the city of light. «Teaching» the audience the key situations they’re likely to encounter during their stay, such as dining in a restaurant, taking the metro and attracting the opposite sex.

As of November 2018, Olivier Giraud’s book, with the same title as the show, became available in both English and French, online and at the show.

How to Become a Parisian in One Hour is a show performed entirely in English, playing every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Theatre de Nouveautés.
