Le Grand Point Virgule
History and Fun Facts about the Grand Point Virgule
In the Montparnasse district, once the haunt of Hemingway, and the resting place of Sartre, we now find the epicenter of cutting-edge French comedy. Le Grand Point Virgule was founded in 2012 by director-producer Jean-Marc Dumontet, who had previously directed at Bobino and the Théâtre Antoine. He envisioned a Mecca of comedy, where comic performers could hone their craft on a grand stage. Since then, 2,500 performances have taken place on the theatre’s two thematically-named stages, the Majuscule (or “Upper Case”), and the Apostrophe stage. It hosts any number of comic genres, from plays, to stand-up, to improv, and one-man shows, and always seeks to push the boundaries of humor. Should you find yourself in the mood for a good old laugh, there’s no better place to head than to the Grand Point Virgule, for a healthy dose of humor!

Tips are not mandatory in Parisian theatres. However, ushers will usually expect a small tip of between 2€ and 5€, which you can give them when they've shown you to your seat. Fun fact: the French word for “tip” is “pourboire,” which literally translates to “to have a drink.”
