What is American Goulash?
This is an autobiographical comedy series about growing up as a first-generation American in a 425-square foot shack in the middle of small town Piscataway, New Jersey and eventually moving to Philadelphia to peruse a career in film.
I named the series “American Goulash” because my life feels like a mixture of Hungarian and American influences….served up with a little bit of paprika. Some of these stories are told in the form of writing, some are animated, some are film. It’s like a big bowl of stew. The stories are in no particular order.
Okay, so technically, it’s a dish that kinda resembles hamburger helper, but I was trying to be a little poetic about it, dammit! If you are a Googler looking for the recipe for “real” American Goulash, it’s here.
Warning: Some of these stories may be “TMI” (too much information), so if you are offended by blunt, uncensored honesty, please do not read forward.
Are these stories actually true?
My lawyer says I’m supposed to say “no”. So I’m going to say “no” (wink wink wink!) Obviously, names have been changed to protect the guilty, and anyone stories resembling real-life people, places, or occurrences are a coincidence (wink wink wink!)
