Laughing Matters Presents
If you are looking for comedy and entertainment in your native tongue or the English you have picked up, I can recommend a comedy club, la Java. They used to be at the Hôtel du Nord, famous for the movie, along Canal Saint-Martin.
Karl Beer’s gang has moved to rue du Faubourg du Temple.
“… a genuine 1930’s dance hall where once upon a time Jean Gabin would trip the light fantastic with Edith Piaf. The man behind the bar is Christophe who with his father Jacques has been running the place for decades. Ghosts abound!”
Call for reservations: 01 53 19 98 88.
