Comedian Paul Taylor: 'French people have a good sense of humour'

Laughing at the French propensity to go on strike at the drop of a hat, or the absolute panic that rocked the country at the notion of a potential butter crisis, Paul Taylor makes a living mocking his adopted home and its citizens. And as he explains, the French do enjoy seeing their peculiarities highlighted to them. The British comedian also gives us his views on the differences in gender equality and indeed sexual harassment on the streets of Paris compared to other places he has visited.
