Now playing at the Théâtre Bo Saint-Martin in Paris.

Sarah’s show is hilarious! She will have you laughing the whole hour long!

Great show!
I laughed from the beginning until the end.

Sarah is really funny and will show you what it’s really like to come and live in Paris as an ex-pat. Never mind Emily In Paris, this is the real thing!

I was laughing the entire time. The material is fresh, hilarious, sassy, and original. Highly recommended!

Spectacle très drôle, Sarah a beaucoup d’énergie et dépeint avec son humour incisif les travers des Parisiens, des Français en général et leur langue si difficile.

I was actually crying with laughter at the end. She’s so witty, dry, and creative…Would 100% recommend!!!

Past Shows

Previous one-hour shows

It’s genius comedy. The Amber/Sarah synergy is enchanting, uplifting, and hilarious. A must see!

Funny, relatable, fresh!

HILARIOUS!!! I laughed from beginning to end. This is a show worth watching. Best comedy show in Paris!

Funniest show ever. I literally laughed right from the get-go until the end. I had to massage my cheeks they were aching so much from laughing! Highly recommend this show.

“Amber is English and Sarah is American, but their kids are French…..MERDE.

Becoming Maman explores the complications and the comedy that arises when raising your children in a different culture and in a different language.

Follow Amber and Sarah as they discover what being a Parisian Maman means as opposed to being an English Mummy or an American Mom through fast-paced, smart stand-up comedy.

Amber and Sarah are Ali Wong meets Amy Schumer meets French Children Don’t Throw Food with their own bi-cultural and bilingual twist. So come along for one hour of laughs, whether you’ve procreated or not – I mean everyone likes to laugh at the French, even if you grew that French person!

They’re not Parisian, but they are Mamans. Becoming Maman: raising French children one bilingual tantrum at a time.”
