100% in English
The only one-woman show in Paris, 100% in English! After years in the US, this born-and-bred Parisian left a successful albeit buttoned-up legal career to let her inner comedian roar. The hilarity ensues as she demonstrates just what it is to be a woman in Paris. Live a hectic day in the life of Julie Collas-a Parisian to the core-and have your sides splitting at her endearingly silly French accent.
**Comedy night in support of our favourite parisienne, Notre Dame! Julie Collas has created her show "Oh My God She's Parisian!" because she, of course, loves the city of Paris. She has therefore decided to hold two special show dates in May 2019, donating all the proceeds to the reconstruction of Paris' beloved Notre Dame. Mark your calendars May 24 and 25, 2019, all ticket proceeds for these show dates go directly to the rebuilding efforts!**
What do you get when you take a well-to-do Parisian and send her off to law school in the US to begin a successful legal career? Julie Collas.
After life changing events made her realize life was too short for legal jargon, she changed paths to become Paris' only one-woman show. In one hour, a day-in-the-frenzied-life of a Parisienne will have you recognizing many familiar faces, from the French president himself to the elusive waiter, a rude Parisian and that person on the metro that makes you go "Huh?" The City of Lights will no longer hold any secrets after Julie is done revealing her comings and goings in this wonderfully chaotic Paris life.
A show that is highly appreciated by Parisians who recognize themselves, as well as English speakers living and visiting Paris! After a spectacular start in September 2017 and more than 5000 spectators from Paris and from all around the world, more than 40 nationalities have come to laugh at her politically incorrect humor and the flaws of Parisians!

Really good show!
For all those who know Paris (or not), come and spend a great evening.
We were belly laughing from start to finish! If you can see just one show in Paris, make it Julie's!!
A charming primer for life in Paris - Just saw the show last night and enjoyed it quite a bit. The theater is easy to find and access from the Metro, cozy and friendly. The performance was a hoot! Julie is a great mimic, storyteller and can easily riff
Spunkiness and charm...
A hilarious and magnificent evening! Julie is a woman full of energy and always open to discussing cultural differences. With her enormously funny approach, we didn't stop laughing the whole show! Absolutely something to see during your trip to Par
A great moment à la parisienne - Really great one-woman show! A show with many surprises, funny anecdotes and so true all of them! One of the best parts is the interaction with the audience. Bravo, a must-see in Paris!!
Théâtre Bo St Martin
The modern gem Théâtre Bo St Martin was created by 2 television professionals who wanted to start their own live show. They hunted for the perfect location and ultimately setled on transforming a comic book store into the intimate theatre it is today. Where does the Théâtre BO Saint Martin get it's name? The two original founders, Bolender and Bonafus, felt the choice was obvious, go with the shared first few letters of their names!
After opening to other performers, the theatre is now the place to discover new comedians in the Parisian theatre scene. Decked out with all the latest stage tech, the intimate setting will have you laughing along with your peers before brushing shoulders with the comedian at the onsite bar. Situated steps from the Place République, a popular Parisian hub full of choices for dining before or after the show.
Handicap Accessible? Yes

Is the show accessible to English speakers?
Julie Collas speaks a wonderfully charming broken English - well, Franglish. Let yourself be seduced!

Is a show programme included with my tickets?
Tickets for Oh My God She's Parisian do not include a programme.
It says this show is not recommended for children under 12. What does it mean?
Julie Collas is a typical Parisian woman. Officially, she speaks French and English. Unofficially... she loves to play with slang and explicit language to make you laugh, as a typical New-York stand-up comedy actor. Get your seatbelts fastened and be prepared to take off...
How long does the show last?
The show lasts one hour and five minutes with no intermission
Is it a show for travellers or French people?
Both! Julie Collas is a typical French woman. She lived in the USA for 10 years, and came back with a strong will to succeed and an endless energy to make you laugh. Parisians, French patrons from the province (i.e. anything French except Paris) and guests from all over the world come see her show.
Is tipping customary?
The Bo Saint-Martin is a very small theatre with open seating. It is therefore not expected that you will tip the usher. However, if you feel like rewarding a very nice welcoming host, please note that 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.”
