Wrocław’s heroes of American humor return to Mleczarnia with comedy of epic proportions! Famous Jim Williams Presents: “The Comedy Avengers” will be a mix of new material as well as some classic favorites as each comedian brings his own unique super-power to the stage.
First, a fresh face from the most recent open-mic nights will assume the role of Special Guest-Host. Polish-Greek sensation Jakub Pychynsk will guide the audience through an action-packed, gamma-radiation filled evening of laughter and fun.
“The Man from Manhattan”, Peter LaVilla brings the hammer down and demonstrates his lightning fast ability to win an audience over with his candid, self-deprecating, tell-all humor.
Next, writer and in-demand voice actor Derrek Carriveau takes the stage with his iron-man endurance to drain beer can after beer can and his ability to transform alcohol into laughter with his whisky-warm voice and his martini-dry wit.
Christian A. Dumais – writer and creator of Twitter’s @DrunkHulk – follows 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 189,000 followers, he continues to be a major force to be reckoned with.
Finally, Captain of all things “Ah-muhr-ka”, Jim Williams takes the stage. Fresh off an award-winning performance of his Polish-language stand-up act “UWAGA! I’m Gonna’ Mówić Po Polsku” at Krakow’s PAKA kabaret festival, Williams returns to his mother tongue to share his biting observations about American culture throughout the world. Using his dual powers of physical and spoken-word comedy, it’s easy to see why Wroclaw Uncut called Williams a “comedy gem.”
Come check out Wroclaw’s best stand-up comedy in English as Famous Jim Williams continues his comedy invasion of Poland, and eventually the world!

Hello, I’m Professor Adam Freeman and welcome to 19th and 20th Century English Literature.
It’s come to my attention that there are rumors about this course being tremendously difficult (71% of students who have taken this course have failed, according to some dodgy statistics), and even worse, that I’m very strict and unforgiving. I don’t know where those rumors started. Would a strict professor bring you free coffee and donuts to every lecture? Would a difficult professor give you all the answers to the exams (for instance, on Version 4 of the exam, Waldo can be found on the lower left behind the elephant)? Would an unforgiving professor completely understand that it’s perfectly normal for someone to have six grandmothers who all die within the span of 18 weeks?
Of interest, I’d like to point out that I’m married to a wonderful wife and we have three children, all of whom depend on me financially to support them. Speaking of finances, I make very little money. I’m told Chancellor Hawthorne – who lives near campus – is someone you might call wealthy.
The key to passing my course is always attending class, completing all homework correctly and on time, and being prepared for all tests and exams. I’ve outlined the general guidelines for this course below. If you don’t mind, please read this carefully.
I am available for consultation in my office Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM. My office is Room 306 in the Building A5, which has armed security guards working the main entrances.
I keep all of my valuables in the upper left drawer of my desk. My wallet will be on top of the desk within easy reach. The framed pictures of the woman and children on my office wall are people that I do not know. They are of no consequence to me and would certainly not be worth taking as hostages.
I’m available during this time to answer any questions you might have about the course material. If my answers are insufficient or unsatisfactory, please provide me with the answers you would be happiest hearing. Remember, the job of a professor is to bring you happiness. And donuts. Read more
