Comedian Paul Taylor is a French language learner’s dream.

His stand-up half-in-English, half-in-French shows focus on what it is like to move to France after living in the UK. 

If you are an expat in France, much of Paul’s content is likely to resonate with your experiences, from faux-amis to faux-pas to adapting to niche aspects of French culture, he covers it all. 

Born in Chelmsford, England, Paul spent five years in France when he was growing up, so speaks French without a hint of a British accent. 

Having done some stand-up at university in London, where he studied French and Spanish, Paul later returned to the comedy world after a few years working for Apple, inspired by the success of non-British comedians in Britain.

Then living in Paris, Paul thought there was a niche for a foreign comedian in France to help French people see their country through different eyes. 

He was right - one of his first videos, “What the f*ck, France” talking about la bise and how difficult it is to get right, had more than a million views in just a few days, prompting French TV channel Canal+ to get in touch regarding a longer series. 

Following the success of his first two stand-up tours, “#Franglais” and “So British ou Presque”, he is now onto his third stand-up show called “Bisoubye x” which he is set to start performing this month. 

According to the show’s description, “Bisoubye x” is about “having to say goodbye to a certain number of things in my life to be able to move onto the next chapter.”

The tour will last throughout 2023, seeing Paul travel across France to deliver his show. He will also play London, which he told The Connexion in 2018 was a “priority” for him due to the large number of French expats there.

The tour will also head to Bangkok and Singapore before making its way back to France for the final leg. 

All of Paul’s material takes place in 50% French 50% English, so it is perfect for learners of either language.
