Stand-up Comedy in English returns to Mleczarnia December 1st! Whether you’re a foreigner in Poland or a Pole who likes to share a laugh with foreigners, Famous* Jim Williams’ “International House of Comedy” will have you falling out of your seat with laughter! This month we’ve got a flapjack stack of comedians ready to serve you a syrup-sweet helping of humor. So, who’s on the menu? “The Mediterranean Sensation”, Polish-Greek Comic/Actor Ιάκωβος Πιχίνσκι (Jakub Pychynsk) will kick off the evening followed by Wrocław’s native son, screenwriter for Trudne Sprawy and Dlaczego ja?, Michał Grzebieniak . Then get ready for a three-course feast of funny from across the Atlantic ocean with The Three Americans! Not-so-freshly squeezed from Florida, writer and in-demand voice actor Derrek Carriveau brings his whisky-warm voice and his martini-dry wit to the stage. Derrek will aim his boozy humor at everyday life to create comedy that is both acerbic and wonderfully honest. Next, Christian A. Dumais – writer and creator of Twitter’s @DrunkHulk – brings home the bacon and proves why TIME called him “one of [their] favorite funnymen!” Drunk Hulk was recently named the #1 “Parody Twitter Account of All Time” by Heavy, and thanks to his nearly 200,000 followers, he is the third most popular Twitter feed in Poland. Finally, for Dessert, the man with a name as American as apple pie, Jim Williams takes the stage. His Polish-language stand-up act “UWAGA! I’m Gonna’ Mówić Po Polsku” won awards at Poland’s largest comedy festivals last season. […]
Sorry to be that guy, but I’m particularly proud of tonight’s dinner: Breaded portobello mushrooms (baked) with cheese, mashed celeriac, and a salad made from lamb’s lettuce, tomatoes and Balkanese cheese.
I was lucky enough to be a guest on the Star Wars Minute podcast where “each daily episode is devoted to one individual minute of the movie Star Wars, in order, beginning to end.” It’s hosted by Alex Robinson and Pete the Retailer, who’ve managed to take a ridiculous idea and create some real magic. My minute is actually from the end credits, but that doesn’t stop me from talking about the rest of the movie, as well as the other parts. And I even manage to turn the tables on the hosts at the end with some questions of my own. Thanks again to Alex and Pete for having me on! Check it out!
This is one of those projects that ended up being a little more work than I envisioned, but the results were pretty astonishing. To get the right amount of seeds, I had to cut up three medium-sized pumpkins; which was fine, because that allowed me to boil and mash up some pumpkins to freeze for later. After picking out the seeds (my least favorite part), I boiled them in salt water for about an hour, and then spread them out on a baking sheet over night. The next day I pan fried the seeds in olive oil. And then I followed the recipe (in Polish). I’ve never made pesto before in my life – with or without pumpkin seeds – and I’m amazed at how great this turned out. It’s been a great autumn so far with the pumpkin recipes. So far I’ve tackled pumpkin pasta, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes and pumpkin soup, with lots more recipes to go…
