Humor has an important role in the life of every person. It helps to have a simpler attitude towards problems, go through crises, stress, and generally develops a positive view of the world. Right now it's more important than ever. This is why we decided to partner with the StandUpovka stand-up club, where a team of awesome young comics share tons of humor left and right on a weekly basis.
Modern stand-up is a comedic genre that first appeared in the USA and that has comics joking in front of a live audience on any topic: relationships, everyday situations, work, or even a simple trip to a grocery store that eventually turned into a funny 20-minute monologue.
StandUpovka is a Moldavian stand-up club that was founded about a year and a half ago and breathed a new life into the stand-up comedy genre in Moldova. Stand-up artists perform in various cafes and pubs that can be visited by anyone, who wants to enjoy a show full of hot-button humor.
The comedian team consist of the guys that develop their humor in other projects, as well, including the Ukrainian "League of Laughter" (Ivan Lyulenov is a two-time champion), local Club of the Cheerful and Sharp-witted, "lumor" show, Zebra Show, and Comedy Chisinau. It also has residents, whose main occupation isn't related to humor: Marin Madan is a marketer, actor, and singer, while Victor Maximciuk is a doctor.
Over this period, the team managed to have over 200 funniest and cozy stand-up evenings. Before the pandemic, they set up a big 800-person show that was symbolically titled "The Last Show" and featured both local and foreign comedians – Artur Chaparyan (Russia) and Nikolay Zyryanov (Ukraine).
For us, as a holding, it is important that such art develops and Moldova sees more new talents. Then, we'll be one step closer to being better off at home.
