Олесь Тимофеев поговорил с украинским шоуменом, ведущим и продюсером Дядей Жорой (Вадимом Мичковским). In the new edition of the “Big Game”, Oles Timofeev spoke with the Ukrainian showman, host and producer Uncle Zhora (Vadim Michkovsky). Vadim shared his business experience, told why Comedy Club Ukraine closed and how much it cost to shoot a single issue of the show.
We publish the highlights of the conversation Olesya and Vadim.
About Comedy Club Ukraine
The project Comedy Club Ukraine started in 2006 and was a branch of the Russian Comedy.
Shooting one issue of the show of such scale cost at least $ 10-15 thousand. Comedians wrote jokes themselves, but there were also third-party authors. A new concert took place every week, and it was physically impossible for one to generate the required number of stories alone.
The Comedy Club Ukraine was closed in 2010: a conflict between actors and producers began, and the resale of the main company did not have the best effect – they began to pay less attention to the Ukrainian branch.
On successful and unsuccessful business experience
My first business is the sale of cassettes. It was still in university years. It often happened that a person came for one cassette, but in the end I sold him a dozen. In a month, it was possible to earn several hundred dollars – good money at that time.
Once we decided with friends to buy sports jackets in Hungary and sell them on the market – we were told that they “fly away” instantly. As a result, these jackets are still in my house.
I also had a coffee shop and a small eatery in the park. Interestingly, the eatery with kebabs and beer brought more money than a trendy coffee shop in the city center. Businesses helped close everyday issues, but I was always more attracted to creativity.
How many songs need to be released to become popular
A talented artist may become popular after the first song, but the rule of “Ten songs” is more often used – you need to record at least ten songs in order to achieve success. Do not forget about the clips and the outputs on the radio. The cost of one television movie – a few tens of thousands of dollars.
