Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
One of the best-known venues for comedy theatre, the Daunou was opened in 1921 by the actress Jane Renouardt. It’s enough to make rival stages jealous: it seats 450 and is decorated in lavish art deco style (renovated in 1973 after a fire), with walls covered in blue velvet. Over the years operettas, comedies and revues have been staged here, including work by some of the city’s greatest comics – Spinelly, Harry Baur, Louis de Funès and more. Today it’s no longer one of the most fashionable venues, but the programme of comedy is still strong.
