Poupak's Parisian Life in New York

I am a French-Iranian woman with a passion for comedy. I have been lucky enough to be performing all over New York since 2010. I was a TV producer and a head writer for a morning live news show in France, as well as a free lance journalist and a book editor for many years.

Now, I am a life and a career coach (member of ICF), an improviser, a writer, and a show producer. I love my life!

I am a performer at the UCB & sometimes produce shows at The PIT in New York.

My French Tumblr: La Vie à l'Impro

I contribute to BuzzFeed.

I fight cancer with a passion - I want to contribute to a world where cancer will be as benign as a simple cold. Where you can donate against cancer of any kind and give hope to families and patients

Don’t Be A Fucking Asshole on the NYC Subway

I’d like to launch an awareness campaign aimed at rude New Yorkers, written in a style they’ll understand, so that one day, maybe, they won’t be quite so shitty. 

I should note that most New Yorkers are completely wonderful, caring people. It’s just that some of us seem to enjoy the “New Yorkers are assholes” thing a bit too much. 

Yes. Thank you. All of this.

Anywhere in the world, don’t be a Fucking Asshole.

Yep, definitely not applicable to just the NYC subway.

Don’t be an asshole: keep your fucking kids away from my swearing. (Also keep your kids out of range of my sweary posters that are against swearing I guess?)

My own addition:

Don’t Be A Fucking Asshole: Subway Cars Are NOT Cafeterias.

Love it! My personal fix for people leaning on the pole is to clang my ring loudly against it as I grab hold of it right by their head. Subway jerks bring out my aggressive side.


How many Yes’s can we add to a post??? How many??????
