  • Chloé

    What a great show tonight!
    I really enjoyed it!
    Hope I’ll see you in an other show soon (maybe The French fried comedy night next time)
    Is the show “sorry we’re English” always the same? Or do you change the text sometimes?

    • Hi Chloe,
      Glad you enjoyed the show tonight!
      “Sorry, We’re English” is usually the same each time although we do make little changes sometimes depending on what the audience says to us.
      Next week I’m not there but Paul is going to be joined by our friends Amber and Tom, both English too. You know Amber from the podcast. :)

      • Chloé

        Ok! So I’ll try an other ;)
        Maybe I’ll go next week to see Amber! ;)

        This show is really great to improve our English! Like podcast but with you in 3D ;)

  • mih

    omg, I thought Paul is black when I listened to his voice =)

  • Your comedy act sounds like a laugh (obviously!). I’m British and live in France too, but closer to Switzerland than to Paris, so it might be tricky to come and see you perform on a school night! I saw Paul’s video about ‘la bise’ – so true. I’ve started writing about living and teaching in deepest, darkest, provincial France: eltinfrance.wordpress.com/. There might be the occasional “funny” article. I’m trying anyway. Have a look if you fancy a non-Parisian British perspective on living in France (sound jealous don’t I?)!

    Luke, every thought of performing once in Hong Kong in your lifetime? Hong Kong was a colony of British and it does have pub, clubs for stand-up performance. What’s more, I think you won’t lack the source for your humor in place like this.

  • romana

    great! i wish you would perform in vienna! unfortunately there’s no such thing as british stand up comedy here :(

  • Luke,

    Maybe you would like to proofread script of two youtube films on this page, I transcribed them a few weeks ago (and I added it to appropriate folder too).

  • philippe delandre

    In Paris, you know you are in the Underground when yeah (sniff sniff) yeah you’re in ! Very practical for the blinded people to distinguish between underground’s escalators and “Galleries Al Fayet” escalators …not exactly the same perfume indeed. :D

  • Leonardo Mota

    I will be in Paris between 6th and 9th February. Will you be performing on those days?

    • Unfortunately not :(

      • Leonardo Mota

        What a pity! It would be nice. Are there any bars or restaurants that you recommend (considering we don’t have a lot of money)? :D Me and my girlfriend are from Brazil and we’ve never been to Paris.
        I really appreciate your podcast. They’ve helped me a lot!!

      • There’s a cool bar called Le Fantome which I would recommend. It has pizza and loads of old arcade computer games. It’s in the 10th arrondissement plus.google.com/115898776497001397597/about?gl=fr&hl=en

      • Leonardo

        Thank you for the tip. We will certainly go there because it seems really nice and is close to where we will stay too.

  • Andrzej

    Still funny, no matter how many times :)
