Mikhail Nikolayevich Zadornov (Russian: Михаи́л Никола́евич Задо́рнов; July 21, 1948 in Jūrmala, Latvian SSR, USSR – November 10, 2017 in Moscow, Russia) was a Soviet and Russian stand-up comedian and writer. Zadornov was born into an artistic family, his father Nikolai Zadornov being a notable writer from Riga.

A recurring theme in Zadornov's humour is national stereotype and national mentality. He often satirically compared Russian traditions and lifestyle with that of other nations, especially Americans and former Soviet countries. Zadornov deplorably mocked westernization in both Russia and abroad. In 2002, Zadornov rescinded his visa to the United States as a protest to the American athletes' flag-waving behavior at the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympics. As Mikhail sometimes targeted Russia's top power figures, some of his sketches were rejected or edited by state TV stations on political grounds.

We have a tradition. For the new year, before the chimes, the country with the new year congratulates the main person. As of December 31, 1991 at 23:45 country New Year congratulated Mikhail Zadornov.

He is involved in charity work and help young artists to break into the wall.  He did it "not loud".

He was a good man, optimistic.

And of course the talented and the jokes were funny. And yet he had the name appropriate, Zadornov - enthusiasm.



A few of his quotes. Really don't know what that will turn a interpreter.

Died from the effects of premature dementia, a decidedly more reputable death than that of AC/DC front man Bon Scott.

Not an easy way to go though, and only 64.

Died wonderful actor Leonid Bronevoy. He was 91.

I don't remember it played a direct major role. But his secondary characters are very memorable.

In the "Formula of Love" he played a deadpan doctor. "And the head-a subject dark..and research subject "

In "the very Munchausen", he played a vigorous Duke specialist in trendy uniforms. "What?! I? Single breasted? What do you mean? Don't know what are single now, nobody is fighting? A disgrace! War at the doorstep, and we are not ready! No, we are not ready for war!"

Well, its wonderful role of the chief of the secret state police of Germany Heinrich Muller
