Stand-up format is getting more and more popular in Russia.English Moscow Comedy
English Moscow Comedy the only organization in Moscow which puts on regular comedy events in English. They have put on many shows in past seven months in various bars and cafes around Moscow.
On April 1, 2017, English Moscow Comedy presents “Comedy Heroes: The Big Stand-up Show”: the biggest comedy show they have ever put on so far. Six international comedians; Cristiano Righi (Italy), Denis Nikolin (Russia), Gleb Tugushev (Russia), Blake Brown (U.S.), Igor Mondae (Croatia) and Arun Khurana (India), veterans of English comedy in Moscow, will come together on stage of Dom Kino (House of Cinema, 13 Vasilyevskaya St., White Hall) in a full-length show that will showcase some of their best material that was written and developed during the last few years, and that audience already recognized as hilarious and entertaining.
These comedians have been preparing for this show for more than a year now, when they went on a successful stand-up tour across Balkans called “From Russia With Laugh”, hitting four cities. Following that, they have performed at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
“I've been there every Friday night since May 2016 on their free shows (all in English of course), and I loved every single moment of it whether it's the panel show, the improvisation show or the stand-up comedy show. The Saturday "special" shows like "From Russia With Laugh" and "Breaking Bed" were hilariously funny(...) Expats, Russians, and Foreigners of Moscow - unite!” Shadi Shaaban wrote on TripAdvisor.
