In French, the word effeuillage denotes the action of removing flower petals, but it also refers to the action of removing one’s clothes in a suggestive manner. In this way, the term "effeuillage" has a more poetic connotation than its English synonym "strip tease," which is also used in France but puts more emphasis on the funny aspect and less on the poetic nuances. The Cabaret Canaille show offered by the Comédie de Paris plays on these dual meanings with a lot of intelligence and will show you strippers whose routines play with their charms. Ooh la la! C’est Paris!
Glamor, humor, and glitter... If you dare to go through the doors of Cabaret Canaille, you will enter a world of glamor and burlesque strippers. You’ll be transported back in time, from the ’20s to the ’40s, the golden age of American Burlesque and the famous pin-ups. Do you want to get flirty? Come to the Comédie de Paris!

It was originally called "Les Menus plaisir," then became "Le Théâtre de l'humour," "Le Nouveau Théâtre Libre," the "Studio-Théâtre" and the "Love-Théâtre."
Opened on December 24, 1929, it began its life as a fashionable cabaret just at the foot of Montmartre hill. During the Second World War, the music hall tradition was abandoned in favor of more comical shows. It was only at the beginning of the ‘80s, that the theatre became a staple of comedy in Paris. Today, we advise you to bring your tissues, not for tears of sadness but rather for tears of... of laughter!
