“Frédérick Sigrist refait l’actu”, funny man
I have to spread the info. Today I went to see a stand up comedian, Frédérick Sigrist, and I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised. Not knowing the guy, and having quickly read about him in the culture section of a free newspaper, it is true that I didn’t expect much coming in, but over the 1h15 of the show I must have spent a good 30 to 45 minutes laughing out loud. After passing the first impression of an unknown comic and getting over the exaggerated laughs of some guy in the back who seemed to show that he had his money’s worth, I got into the show which had amazingly well written transitions, and very good jokes (including fresh news from the past week or so, which means the guy actually updates his material regularly).
The best part is that until May 26th (basically the first month of the show), the entrance fee is only 3€s! Yes only 3€, and he personally collects donations at the exist, so you basically give what you think it was worth depending on what you can afford. The downside being that the show is in a small room with barely enough ventilation to breathe, especially considering it’s starting to get hot in Paris (only the strategic seats in the middle can enjoy the AC directed on them).
So heads up to Frédérick Sigrist, and I encourage anybody in Paris to go see his show: Monday through Wednesday, 20h15 at Funambule Montmartre (go on the website and make a reservation).
I wish him all the success he deserves.
