I was six years old, when I saw for the first time a legendary Yuri Nikulin… not live, just on TV…but I was so enchanted and impressed that I instantly knew, what I wanted to be when I grew up… not a policemen, not a fireman, not even the train driver… I wanted to become a clown!

It took me next nine years to say this decision of mine (at loud) to my family back than living in Saratow. I still remember my father’s words; if it´s for real, then go for it! But no second chance, you understand? Enthusiastically I said YES, clueless of knowing what he was really saying…

Happy and full of hopes I went to Moscow in 1989… in the year when Soviet Union has fallen apart… just a perfect timing to become a clown, don’t you think? And so this amazing, yet challenging and sometimes even tough journey of mine begun…

The Bon Voyage is a show so far beyond of an instant (first impression), commercial (without the content) entertainment …but of course it is still an entertainment… where you will be accepted by heart and soul!!
