Midge wanders through the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris and comes across Madame Arthur Cabaret, a transvestite cabaret show. Unsurprisingly, Midge accidentally ends up on stage, as she’s trying to fix the dress of one of the singers, and then is amazed to discover the singer was a “he!” She then embarks on a stand up set, with an American woman who lives in France translating for the crowd.

The Madame Arthur Cabaret is a real venue located at 75 bis rue de Martyrs, and is named after the song Madame Arthur by Du Baiser au Portier from the late 19th century.
