A PROPOS D’OLIVIER GIRAUD ET DE LA FRENCH ARROGANCE PROD. La French Arrogance Productions a été créée en 2009 par Olivier Giraud. Ancien maître d’hôtel dans l’hôtellerie-restauration de luxe aux États-Unis, il revient en France en 2008 pour réaliser son rêve d’enfant: devenir humoriste! Son thème? Les Parisiens et les diffé­rences culturelles ! Devant les réticences des Directeurs de théâtre à produire un show en anglais à Paris, Olivier Giraud monte, avec Claudie Pichon, leur propre structure. Entre 2009 et 2021, le spectacle« How to become a Parisian in one hour? » a réuni près d’un million de spectateurs et a été joué plus de 2300 fois. Fin novembre 2018, Olivier Giraud écrit son premier livre « Guide (très) pratique du Parfait Parisien », édité en 2 langues à 15 000 exemplaires.
