Born in Ohio and raised in Small Town, Michigan, Banachowski started stand up comedy at the age 17 in a high school talent show (and won that shit).
Forced to go to college, and having to pay for it in cash, Banachowski worked as a tutor, busboy, waiter, dishwasher, landscaper, midnight receptionist, and television producer all while graduating from Second City Detroit and hanging out at comedy clubs and the dive-iest of bars throughout southeast Michigan (and wonders why he's never had a successful relationship that whole period).
After graduating with a degree in math at 21 (genius), he moved to Los Angeles where he's been doing comedy every night ever since (minus a year where he lived in Brooklyn, New York doing comedy and getting food poisoning in public where he vomited and shit himself on a train for an hour (not genius)). He's also graduated from LA improv schools such as the Upright Citizen's Brigade, The Groundling's Theatre, and regularly performs stand up at the Hollywood Improv and Comedy Store as well as clubs across the US.
Audience members have often compared his style to the likes of George Carlin, Bill Burr, and Bo Burnham (which I'm sure they'd all be thrilled to hear, "You know Bill, you remind me of this Polish kid I saw at that bar Big Fish in Glendale").
A throwback to the old school days here at the Improv, starting right after the 10pm show we open the stage to our seasoned Improv regular comedians who are hanging out at the club to work out their sets. Previous drop-ins include Russell Peters, Jeff Ross, Craig Robinson, Hugh Moore, Ryan Stout, KT Tatara, J Chris Newberg, Brent Weinbach and more!
The show is NO COVER and seated on a first come first serve basis and there is NO DRINK MINIMUM.
Come out for a fun, unpredictable show to end your Saturday night.
