Very funny guy. There were so many French speaking people in the theatre that we were concerned. We found out later that the show was indeed in English. It was a most relaxing evening.

Very funny and a delightful small theater. We still use a couple phrases and French mannerisms back at home from this show. It also was entertaining to hear American phrases and mannerisms chuckled about.

A great way to end my stay in Paris Olivier GIrard was engaging and hilarious. The theatre was itself interesting and a nicely intimate size for the venue. I would see this show again.

We are a family of five Americans, ranging in age from 21 to 59 all of us thoroughly enjoyed the show! A friend had recommended the production to us, and we are glad that we followed up by obtaining tickets. The process was easy and smooth through Viator. This is our second time using your services the other occasion was for a walking tour of Budapest several years ago and we are happy to recommend your outfit.
