Stand-Up comedy in Polish is incredibly popular right now, but if you don't understand Polish, you can't share in the laughter and enjoy some live entertainment...
Jim Williams and World-Wide Comedy have been producing monthly stand-up comedy shows in English for 4 years, entertaining both foreigners living in Poland as well as English speaking Polish locals. Having created vibrant comedy cultures in both Wroclaw and Krakow, Jim Williams and World-Wide Comedy are coming to Lodz in the hopes of doing the same for the English speaking community!
The evening will start with an open-mic hosted by Ukrainian comedian Sviat Marinated, where anyone can get on stage for 5 minutes and tell jokes. Space will be limited, so if you're interested, send a message to World-Wide Comedy via our fanpage. BONUS: All open-mic performers get one free beer from the bar!
Following the open-mic, Jim Williams will perform his award winning comedy act that has delighted audiences all across Poland, as well as in Czech an Austria.
