Excellent performer, great facial expression, very easy to understand, funny

It was very funny and amusing, even for not good english speaking well understandable. Great alternative for a show. We only wondered that he did not pull Germans through the cocoa ..? Was not he in Bavaria yet? A note: please point out that it rue and Bv. with the same name in the same district!

The jokes run a little thin towards the end, but well worth going to

Very funny at the start, approaching the end it was obvious he'd run out of things to say. Also, moving his eyebrows around is not as funny as he thinks it is, certainly not the 6th or 7th time, but he is at all times likeable and the humour is never cruel and so it's easy to run with it. He also managed to fit some topical comments in, which were genuinely funny. An amusing and reasonably insightful way to spend our first night in Paris.
