KVN - 2018: Major League - this is a real celebration of jokes and fun, which both adults and young people in our country are eagerly awaiting. After all, humor has no age limit. He, like love, obey absolutely all ages.
Many TV viewers “with experience” remember that the first release of the program appeared on domestic screens during the “Khrushchev thaw” period. However, not all fans of the Club of cheerful and resourceful know that the popular program of our time had a predecessor called “Evening of fun questions”. However, it did not last long - only four years. The organizers of the project managed to convince the Artistic Council of the USSR that people need a different format of the program, filled with witty jokes and relevant satire. And so it appeared beloved by millions of Russians KVN.
Since 1964, the permanent leader and inspirer of KVN is Alexander Maslyakov. In Soviet times, the format of the program was a novelty to the national television audience. However, people liked the project so much that soon it became the most popular on Soviet television.
Unfortunately, many of the numbers came under strict KGB censorship and were simply cut out of the air. It got to the point that in 1971 the transfer was closed, and a rumor was spread among the people about the arrest of Alexander Maslyakov. The program returned to the TV screens only with the beginning of “perestroika”.
Currently, the Club is cheerful and resourceful is the most ambitious comic show in Russia, which at various times revealed the talent of such "star" artists, such as:
- Vladimir Zelensky (team “95th quarter”, Krivoy Rog);
- Mikhail Galustyan (“Burnt by the Sun”, Sochi);
- Alexander Revva (“Burnt by the Sun”, Sochi);
- Pavel Volya (“Valeon Dasson”, Penza);
- Svetlana Permyakova (“Parma”, Perm);
- Olga Kartunkova (“City Pyatigrsk”,);
- Igor Lastochkin (“Dnepropetrovsk team”).
The brainchildren of KVN are such popular programs and shows, like “Kvartal“ 95 ”,“ Our Russia ”and“ Comedy Club ”.
Any successful project on television sooner or later acquires the status of national. This fate has touched and KVN. From a popular comic show, he turned into a complex business structure that has its own rules.
Today, the games of the Club are fun and resourceful are held in several "divisions", the most prestigious of which is the Premier League. There are also informal (independent) leagues in which amateur teams compete.
Participants in the Higher League are professional teams representing various cities and regions of the Russian Federation.
It is in this “division” that the best KVN teams perform, with the humorous numbers enjoyed by millions of Russian television viewers.
Where are the games?
As a rule, KVN games are held in Moscow. The filming of the program took place in the auditorium of IISS, MDM, Havana cinema, as well as other halls and clubs of the capital. At present, the Club is cheerful and resourceful and has its own complex called “MMC planet KVN”. This site is involved in conducting large-scale projects. For example, there are humorous battles for “Moscow Mayor's Cup“. The rest of the games are held in the “Central Theater of the Army of Russia”. During the “renewed” format of high-profile victories, various teams have been striving, and moreover, not always Russian. After the collapse of the USSR, the representatives of Ukraine, Armenia, and Kazakhstan became triumphant for the project, which once again confirms that humor knows no boundaries.
In the thirty-one years of the existence of KVN within the framework of the Higher League, 215 teams have performed. “New Armenians”, “Burnt by the Sun” and “Odessa Gentlemen” managed to achieve the greatest success in the games. These teams have left a bright and indelible mark on the history of the games of the Club, cheerful and resourceful.
