Drama | Russian| 100mins | Michael Idov

Available 12 March – 25 April

A middle-aged man steps out in front of an applauding crowd. “Hey Lady! How about a photo?” The opening line of comedian Boris Arkadiev’s winning if timeworn routine, the one that has brought him affluence, hordes of adoring fans and, most importantly for a Jew in the Soviet Russia of 1984, the approval of the authorities. Trouble is, Boris is sick to the back teeth of it. Introduced to American ‘insult humour’ by a friend recently returned from LA, Boris decides it’s time to work up some new, edgier material, and chooses the most inappropriate setting imaginable for its first airing. As Boris, Aleksey Agranovich delivers an acting masterclass in which his droll delivery of perfectly timed lines and his careworn facial expressions (think Lenny Bruce meets Rowan Atkinson) precisely characterise the cynicism and trapped despair which drive the brilliant but jaded comedian to risk all.
