Acme's Comedy Kitchen will feature 3 comedian-inspired dishes
There's nothing funny about badly prepared food, but luckily Acme Comedy Company and Sticks Restaurant have teamed up with award-winning chef Vincent Francoual of Vincent A Restaurant to re-create comedian travel food fare as part of a fundraiser event called Comedy Kitchen.

"What we did was, we had three comedians--Mary Mack, Chad Daniels, and C. Willi Myles--and they showed [our chef] how they make their own on-the-road meals in a long-term-stay hotel, like most comedians have to stay at. Vincent retweaked the recipe and made it edible and delicious and taught them how to cook their recipe, but in a much better way," says Acme manager Sarah Remus.
The comedian-inspired dishes will be sold during Acme Comedy Club's 20-year anniversary week celebration November 1 through 5. Proceeds (20%) from each dish will be donated to Fraser, a provider of autism services in Minnesota. The comedian whose dish sells the most will have a donation made to the local charity in his or her name.
