MY BIG, FAT, POLISH ROOT(s) CANAL:

A One-Man Show With Many Personalities
 

What becomes of a chubby Polish kid who becomes a slick Hollywood reporter, only to get pulled back into his family's mindbending drama? Inner growth? That was the idea. But when Inherited Family Trauma and mood swings come into play, a hilarious tale of emotional survival ensues in the vein of Carrie Fisher

and David Sedaris.
