Kabaret Starszych Panów had their TV debut on October 16, 1958. To July 1966 another 16 “evenings” were created, i.e. new programs starring Older Men (Starsi Panowie). The Cabaret programs were broadcast live (unlikely these days) - the songs had been recorded earlier and were played back during the performance. It is thanks to those catchy songs and great melodies by Jerzy Wasowski and the unforgettable texts by Jeremi Przybora that the Cabaret gained such a great popularity, with many citations and gags entering everyday language. Far from the politics, the absurd humor colored a hint of nostalgia provided the Cabaret crowds of admirers, and surprisingly after so many years, they still delight the next generations of listeners.
Kabaret Starszych Panów also promoted many entertainment artists - among those cooperating with Przybora and Wasowski are Irena Kwiatkowska, Barbara Krafftówna, Kalina Jędrusik, Wiesław Michnikowski, Edward Dziewoński and Wiesław Gołas.
Such hits a “Bo we mnie jest seks”, “Addio pomidory! ”, “Piosenka jest dobra na wszystko”, “W kawiarence Sułtan”, “O Romeo”, “Wesołe jest życie staruszka”, were performed later by many artists and had been arranged, for example, for a choir.
