Uncle Vitya, tell us a few words about yourself.
To be honest, I still don’t know who my father is. Since my birth, I had been living in the cupboard under the stairs at my uncle’s, I had a scar on my forehead, then I was admitted into some college where I killed some dude with no nose. And if you believed all that, then I really wonder who YOUR father is, if he brought up such an idiot.
Do people recognize you in the streets and ask you for an autograph?
No, people don’t actually recognize me in the streets, since TNT4 TV channel does not broadcast in Monaco. By the way, these two facts have nothing to do with each other.
What did you do before you appeared on TV?
I’ve been working for television for so long that my previous occupation was a medieval astrologer.
Have you driven any of CASH OR CRASH guests to tears?
Yes, Maxim Galkin was weeping and begging me to take his episode off air. But we ended up not broadcasting it anyway. Apparently, he did the same thing when he begged Alla Pugacheva to marry him, and she did.
If a celebrity refuses to come to your show, what repercussions do they face?
My guests appear on the show of their own free will. In fact, no one has refused yet, that’s why the relatives of my previous guests still have all their fingers intact.
Who is the best comedian on today’s television?
What a silly question! It’s like asking the Russian president who the best president is. By the way, the answer to both questions is Uncle Vitya.
