    As many French commenters have noted, ‘meanwhile’ there is a large fire at a petro-chemical company in Rouen. People are being told to stay indoors and air and water contamination are risks as the fire is burning some rather noxious chemicals. It is so easy to be blinded by our current situation in the United States to the point we barely see any international news of note at the top of news feeds. I hope for the people of Rouen and the surrounding area that they are able to stay safe and this chemical disaster is rapidly contained.

    I've said this before about Stephens monologues. But seriously. The people that write the buildups to all these Meanwhile segments – just give them a pulitzer allready. 🏆

    I'm French (™) and this is the first I'm hearing of this. The French news outlets were all over Trump's impeachment and Jacques Chirac's passing, for all I know.

    Yep… When you don't have an extremely unstable, narcissistic, under-educated, stubborn, constantly lying human being as a President who is moreover struggling against an impeachment, you do have time for some more minor "problèmes" I guess.

    How dare you write problèmes and still say the s at the end? And how is everyone on the internet so sure that every French person has an accent like that? Speaking another language is treason and punishable by cheese in a can for every meal for the rest of your life (may be variable). 😋

    Holy crap Steven, how comes you didn't talk about the DEATH of a former french president and the burning of a factory in Rouen that is covering the entire region in toxic smokes ? Is it because Chirac gave the finger to the US by not joining your irak war, or because that factory is owned by an american billionaire ? But nooo, it's better to talk a silly story about an entitled frenchman, despite both events happening THE DAY BEFORE YOUR SHOW !

    As a French, I absolutely loved this.
    Just be noted that if the chef's accusations are right, a mistake from the reviewer might cost livelihoods, I get why he's upset, michelin stars are broken anyway

    Ok not to say this is a first world problem but in reality it’s so bloody hard to have even 1 Michelin star and these chefs have a lot of pressure to maintain them. So yeah if you work your butt off for a year straight and get demoted over a misunderstanding, you can, understandably, get incredibly frustrated.

    The guy's name is "Colbert" and he dares making jokes about french people. (Search on internet who was Colbert in french history if you don't know)

    I love how the twinkle came back to add the accent grave. As if it had remembered "oh wait, this is French, it needs some extra sass"

    Losing a Michelin star is a big, big deal for a chef. There's a lot of money involved in those famous restaurants, so it's no laughing matter IMO. Kudos for getting the accent right on "problèmes" though!

    This is a real problem, going from 2 to 3 stars is a million euro investment for a restaurant, and losing the star is losing a lot of money.
    There's 127 3star restaurants in the world and 26 in France.
    The average cheapest menu start around 150€ in France.

    I'm French and i naively clicked, thinking you were gonna talk about police violence against peacefull protests. Or about the governement's scandalous orchestration of islamophobia (guess who will be the only possible bullwark against Le Pen come election time ?) to make the people forget they are destroying vital public services one by one for profit, and so on and so on. Oh well, the french like cheese, haha and sex

    I'm french with a great sense of humour too, this was a bit funny but you must know two things before laughing too loud. First we don't have cheese with crackers, english people do and yes one of our chef is angry about something that may sound trivial but here in France it echoed in public opinion because unlike some other people we really care about food; what's inside and how it is made.

    It was funny, I didn't really laugh but I like this type of sketch. Just to clarify something: This isn't actually a good french accent.
    I'm French, and most of the time we will try our best to make our best American or English accent while speaking English (which will usually end up being pretty shitty).
    However, if an old monsieur is speaking in English (old french people are bad at English) he will usually pronounce the words as if it was French. It's not even near that "French accent" you guys are thinking of. The monsieur will read the word "knees" pronouncing the k and other words with a French phonetic. But we usually have the same words, just prononced or written a bit differently.
    But that doesn't matter. Someday you'll go to France and realise it's just completely different from what you thought of it. Or you'll just look for French videos on YouTube and hope for subtitles. (there is none)

    How insulting ! These are not our problems. But, one of the french's problems is " Do we say "pain au chocolat" or "chocolatine"", That's a big deal.

    The joke about Marc Veyrat is very funny. However I still did not catch why Americans depict us as a people stucked in the 50's. It is like making fun of Americans living under the Eisenhower era.

    Not so funny… French people don't care about Marc Veyrat's cheese problem, they don't have enough money to eat in his restaurant anyway. There are a lot of things for making fun of France but this joke doesn't work in my opinion when we know the real situation of the country. And the accent is very bad, nobody speaks like a german in France, except in the very northwest.

    Hahahahha…what are these hideous clichés about France….😂😂 i, as a French person, can’t stand accordion instrument and hate mimes… nearly 0,001% of French people like mimes and accordions…😅

    Why do United States’ people see us as in a postal card..
    15% of French people can speak english correctly, 0,1 % americans can figure where is France on a globe..or other countries….
    So… please..😩
