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.

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

“Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and bang a nun. If nothing in that sentence at least marginally interests you, I have no idea why you’re visiting this website.”

NEVER HAS THIS GIF BEEN MORE APPROPRIATE.

ANYONE WHO HAS TEN MINUTES TO SPARE SHOULD READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE. SHE IS SO BADASS, EVERYONE SHOULD LIVE LIKE HER. TEN THOUSAND POUNDS OF SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY SWAG.

She is incredible. Just read it! 

WHAT!

Yep, French women are badass (Wink! Wink!!) because we have great role models like the one above, funny ones like this one (basically a lady who was a laundress who was raised to noble status through marriage because of her very honest and open language),  this one, and curiously enough this one (who was anatomically a man).  You can also check this one and Josephine de Beauharnais who is rumored to have been instrumental in abolishing slavery in France before any other country in the world (thus ensuring that writers like Alexandre Dumas author of the Three Musketeers, and The Count of Monte Cristo could thrive).

And of course, there are all the 20th century ones - philosophers (Simone de Beauvoir), writers (Françoise Sagan), comedians (Jacqueline Maillan), actresses (Simone Signoret), politicians (Simone Weil), children psychiatrists (Françoise Dolto) - just to name a few. Too many for an exhaustive list here!!
