Jacek Jan Fedorowicz is a Polish satirist and actor. As a student, along with Zbigniew Cybulski and Bogumił Kobiela, he founded the student theatre in Gdańsk. Bim-bom theatre was active between 1954 - 1960. Fedorowicz went on to collaborate with local radio stations and shortly began to work with nationwide newspapers as an author and caricaturist. In the late 1960s, he began working for TVP and was a co-author of different TV shows and soon became known as one of the leading satirists in the country, recognised for his talent to imitate different characters. 

After the introduction of martial law in Poland, Fedorowicz decided to discontinue all work with state-controlled television and other media. He became a supporter of Solidarity movement, presenting caricatures and pro-Solidarity drawings in the so-called "church" areas. He aimed to ridicule the regime and he continued his work in the show he is most well-known "Dziennik Telewizyjny".
