Born in Poland.
Brought up in America (5yrs). Also brought up in Australia for (16yrs).
Mainly Australian then. However, if you want to do a puff piece on how well Poles have integrated into British society then we can ignore the other ones.
First comedy moment: Grade 1, referred to American hero Johnny Apple Seed as Johnny "Pooper" Seed. Was ejected from the classroom.
Michal has been performing stand-up and sketch comedy for the past 4 years. In that time he has performed solo shows at the Melbourne Fringe, Melbourne Comedy and Adelaide Fringe Festivals.
Michal’s performances are free-form by nature, and adlib plays a large part, although London is slowly strangling that out of him. He don"t mind though. (I"m writing this, let"s not pretend).
I... sorry... Michal has presented stuff/performed on community radio + television in Melbourne - if it matters any.
Here are some legitimate quotes from obscure Australian publications of 2004 vintage:
“The unpredictable spontaneity of master improviser Michal Grobelny… makes it the most worthwhile comedy experience on offer” – Beat Magazine, 2004
“Highly enjoyable rapid-fire stream of consciousness… spontaneous, bizarre and hilarious” – Fairfax Digital, 2004
"...A slick performer…star of the future..." – Chas Licciardello, The Chaser, April 2004
So, it seems there"s been no press coverage for nearly 4 years. I don"t mean to pick flaws, but it suggests this guy fell into a huge hole somewhere along the line. Anyway. That"s it.
