FlowFeel Films and Comedian Michael Palascak to Shoot Documentary
Film will capture Palascak’s return to his hometown for standup performance
FlowFeel Films and Michael Palascak, a comedic actor with countless appearances on TV and film (The Tonight Show, Comedy Central, David Letterman) announced they are teaming up to film a feature length documentary. The project will focus on Palascak’s return to his hometown of Wabash, IN. and his live stand up performance there. The show at Eagles Theatre on April 17 will be Palascak’s first live appearance in Wabash.
The film will be co-produced and directed by Brent Kado who is also a Hoosier native. Kado said, “Having previously shot two feature films in North Central Indiana (Welcome to Gentle Waters, which stars Palascak and A Short History of the Valley) I am excited to return to the area to film such a unique event.” Kado and FlowFeel Films are now Los Angeles based but maintains strong working relationships in Chicago and Indiana.
Palascak, a Wabash High School graduate has been working as a comedian for almost 10 years. Spending over 90 days per year on the road for gigs, Palascak now calls Los Angeles home but he remains highly connected to the Midwest. Palascak was named the Chicago Reader’s Critic Pick for best stand up comedian in 2008. Beyond his numerous appearances on late night talk shows, Michael has performed at the Comedy Festival at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas and Live at Gotham on Comedy Central.

For the time being this blog is pretty much inactive. This site has seen many lives as it were, from one of the most covered and visited Chicago culture blogs to more of personal musing spot. With our other projects - FlowFeel Films, Chicago Comedy Film Festival and teaching - coupled with the ease of sharing on sites like Twitter, blogging doesn't fit in the schedule very well. Thanks to all who stopped by over the years. We encourage you to scroll through the archives as there is tons of interesting items to digest. Also please keep up with us at these spots....
Summer is winding down, the days at our lake retreat cooling off. Usually we'd be excited for Fall in the Midwest, but this year we're trying out LA for a stint. Will be quite the exciting juxtapostion to go from the small-town habitat to the SoCal environs. We'll be back next summer, maybe we need to do a video instead of a photoging it all summer.
