For over 10 years, I have trained more than 800,000 spectators in the art of being Parisian with my show «How to Become a Parisian in One Hour ?».

Unfortunately, one hour is not enough to cover in detail all the situations of Parisian life, so I took a pen and I made a book...

Inspired by my show, this guide offers you the keys to "savoir être" and "savoir vivre" in the Capital.

Expat or tourist, the Parisian's daily life will no longer hold any secrets for you: from the metro to the taxi, from the shop to the restaurant, from the nightclub to apartment hunting, from the arrival of a child to a long weekend in Deauville... At the end of this fun training, "real" Parisian life awaits you!

If you're already Parisian and self-derision is one of your qualities? then this guide is also for you!



Depuis plus de 10 ans, j’ai enseigné à près de 1 million de spectateurs l’art d’être Parisien avec mon spectacle «How to Become a Parisian in One Hour ?».

Malheureusement, une heure ne suffit pas pour aborder en détail toutes les situations de la vie Parisienne, alors j’ai pris mon stylo et j’en ai fait un livre...

Inspiré de mon spectacle, ce guide t’offre les clés du « savoir-être » et du « savoir-vivre » dans la Capitale.

Provincial ? Le quotidien du Parisien n’aura plus aucun secret pour toi : du métro au taxi, du magasin au restaurant, de la boîte de nuit à la recherche d’appartement, de l’arrivée d’un enfant à un week-end prolongé à Deauville... A l’issue de cette formation ludique, la «vraie» vie parisienne t’attend !

Tu es déjà Parisien et l’autodérision est l’une de tes qualités ?

Ce guide est pour toi !




At the age of 8, Olivier had promised his mother that one day he would perform at the Olympia. A promise that made her smile...
As a teenager, he was passionate about cooking. A few years later, he graduated from Ferrandi, a French higher school of cuisine. In 2001, Olivier packed his bags for the United States. He obtained a 6-year visa and quickly became Maître d' Hotel at the prestigious East Coast hotel, "The Breakers", in Palm Beach, Florida. At the dawn of his 30th birthday, Olivier realizes that living all year round under palm trees and a blue sky is no longer enough. Obsessed by his childhood dream, he decides to put an end to his American adventure to finally realize his dream. On May 10, 2009, "How to become a Parisian in One Hour" is performed for the first time....

For the past 10 years, his one man show has become a must in Paris because Olivier has trained nearly a million spectators to become perfect Parisians.  Unfortunately, one hour is not enough to detail all the situations, so he took his pen and made a book out of it ... This new practical and humorous 128-page guide will offer you the keys to the "savoir-être" and "savoir vivre" of the perfect Parisian!

Producer, comedian and now publisher, Olivier has opted for the formula that allowed him to choose his illustrator, his printer (in Brittany!), the quality of paper and above all to be free! He naturally turned to self-publishing.

His passion ? Observe the Parisians.
His mission ? Help new Parisians to survive in the French capital !
