Description complète

The Crazy Horse Paris is a world famous Parisian cabaret in the Champs-Élysées district. It is located at 12, Avenue George-V, at the limit of the "Golden Triangle", a few steps from the Seine.

Origin of the Cabaret

Created in 1951 by Alain Bernardin. The name "Crazy Horse" is the one, translated into English and thus passed to the posterity, of the Sioux chief Thašunka Witko, the decoration of the cabaret at its opening being supposed to be of western style, with its room resembling a saloon of the 1870s. Its full original name was the "Crazy Horse Saloon".

The "Crazy Horse Paris" concept

Alain Bernardin opened the Crazy Horse Paris, on the right bank of Paris, on May 19, 1951, based on the idea of American-style striptease mixing eroticism with a very sophisticated aesthetic.

In addition, the Crazy Horse shows are interspersed with traditional cabaret acts (Charles Aznavour made his first appearances), variety acts such as magicians, ventriloquists, etc.

Alain Bernardin decided to give a stage name to each dancer. Many of them acquired a certain notoriety in this place, in particular soloists like Lova Moor (whom he married), Rosa Fumetto, Polly Underground or Diva Terminus,

The Crazy myth develops with the dancers with false eyelashes, dizzy stilettos, nipples, blood lipsticks and square wigs with the typical "Crazy-Horse" fringe.

The evolution of the Cabaret of Paris

Inaugurated on September 21, 2009, the show Désirs, created by Philippe Decouflé and Ali Mahdavi, is presented in Paris. The melody of the final tableau was composed by Philippe Katerine. The poster of the show is by Hilton McConnico.

From March 5 to May 31, 2012, the shoe designer Christian Louboutin participates in the staging of several tables.

In November 2013, the Parisian cabaret and the house of Aubade joined forces to create an exclusive line of lingerie "My Crazy Collection".

From April 2017, Crazy Horse presents its new show Totally Crazy! currently on stage. Under the artistic direction of Andrée Deissenberg and directed by Stéphane Jarny ("The Voice," "Saturday Night Fever," "Dessous Dessus"), Totally Crazy brings together the most emblematic creations of the Parisian cabaret in one show. Totally Crazy integrates a selection of paintings signed by Philippe Decouflé, Christian Louboutin, Chantal Thomass, Dita Von Teese & Ali Mahdavi. They innovate at the same time in this new show and for the first time in the history of this mythical cabaret, it includes the "Crazy-Entertainers" (Master of Ceremonies). It is the Belgian Burlesque-Glamour duo formed by "The Gentleman-Crooner" George Bangable and his "Diva-boudoir" Lolly Wish who are chosen. They welcome and accompany in song and "teasing" the public from its arrival. This gives a unique and warm atmosphere which will be the red thread of the evening and will give to "Totally Crazy" a continuous show without any interruption.

The choice of the dancers of Crazy Horse

The current dancers are recruited according to the following criteria: excellent dancer, height between 1,66 m and 1,72 m, flat belly, beautiful camber and small high and firm chest. They perform five to six nights a week, with two performances per night (or even three nights), receiving a net monthly salary that some sources estimate at 2,000 euros.

The Crazy Horse shows abroad

Between 2001 and 2012, for its fiftieth anniversary, a similar cabaret was also opened in Las Vegas (USA), at the MGM Grand Hotel. A show inspired by the one in Paris was presented there.

A third permanent 450-seat Crazy Horse on Clarke Quay in Singapore, with a bar, restaurant and boutique, opened on December 1, 2005, but closed on January 31, 2007, as attendance targets were not met.

In addition to the Crazy Horse Paris show, a second show, entitled Forever Crazy, is touring internationally (Geneva, Madrid, London, Vienna, Montreal, Moscow, etc.).

Other entertainment or show establishments bearing the name of Crazy Horse, which may have only a distant resemblance to the Paris original, exist or have existed throughout the world. Only those in Singapore and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and the tour, already mentioned, can claim the reference of the Parisian Crazy Horse.
