The West has stand-up comedians. The Soviet Union had ‘satiriki’ who recited monologues poking fun at Soviet life. They became huge stars. And Mikhail Zhvanetsky, who has died aged 86, was one of the best. The satirical monologues he wrote and performed were brilliant.

Oh, no. He was very witty and very beloved. The quintessential Odessan (Odessite?). “Life is short. And you need to know how. How to walk out of a bad movie. How to toss aside a bad book. Walk away from a bad person. And there are a whole lot of those” — Mikhail Zhvanetsky.
