“Learn­ing to be French through Com­edy”

Where Paris - - Entertainment -

As tourists or ex­pats in Paris there are some quirks we have all no­ticed among the Parisians, the way they march to their des­ti­na­tions, their con­stant pout­ing and the way they or­der at res­tau­rants. Olivier Gi­raud has too, no­ticed that the Parisians are unique in their be­hav­iour, and has de­cided to bring all those idio­syn­cra­sies to light.

Born in Bordeaux, Olivier moved to Paris to study ho­tel man­age­ment and af­ter grad­u­at­ing he moved to the Unites States where he man­aged a restau­rant of a 5-star ho­tel. Af­ter four years, and many soul-search­ing nights, he de­cided to re­turn to France and fol­low his real dream of be­com­ing a co­me­dian. Hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced the cul­tural dif­fer­ences be­tween the Parisians and Amer­i­cans while in Florida, and hav­ing ob­served for him­self the tourists of all na­tion­al­i­ties in Paris, he de­cided to not shy away from the hard­hit­ting ques­tions of how one be­comes a real Parisian. How do you grab a waiter’s at­ten­tion in a café? In the metro, what do you do if you see an older lady or a preg­nant woman? And how do you be­have in a cab?
