Meet Paul. Paul is one of our panelists for You Don't Go To A Fest Dressed Like That, Do Ya? You can see Paul in the image below as the 2nd dude in the back row with his head tilted.
My name is Paul Niesen (known in other cult-film circles as Obi Wan K'Niesen). A son of Milwaukee County and graduate of the University of Arizona, I have been teaching English at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh since the early nineties (my claim to have been the first teacher to show TBL in an academic setting - Spring 2000 - has yet to be challenged). I discovered Lebowski Fest on their online forum in spring 2008. I have since attended six Fests in four different cities. An entrant in all six Best Dude contests, I was chosen by Chicago Achievers as His Dudeness on November 12, 2011. Topping that experience was witnessing my wife Yvonne rock the house in Milwaukee, summer 2012, as the Ralphs girl, with my son Matt, a notable Larry Sellers, at my side. His older brother Dan loves to quote, and he hates the Eagles.
