Best Comedy in Paris – Best of Paris 2017

Share Button

The English-speaking theatre and comedy scene in Paris has grown exponentially over recent years, offering some great acts by talented performers, but there is one individual who really stands out in this category. Initially rejected by theatres across the city for attempting the unimaginable, Olivier Giraud has built his show, «How to Become a Parisian in One Hour» ( into a ‘must see’ for any expat or tourist in Paris. Regularly performing to a 500 member audience, Olivier takes us on an educational, highly humorous journey, while showing us how to adapt to Paris life and behave like the locals. 924 votes ensured his show retained the title of Best Comedy in Paris for the second year running.
