What is KVN? Club of cheerful and resourceful

Everything is known about what KVN is. The World Game, in which not only young people, but also older humorists take part, ranks first among all comedy TV shows. The KVN team of the Russian Federation participates in games with other countries. For someone from humorists, it's just entertainment, and for someone with age it turns into a profession.

What is KVN?

The most popular TV show with a humorous bias at the moment is the first on TV. This game is played by young children, teenagers and adults. About what KVN is and how it deserved popularity, you can say a lot. But every inhabitant of the planet knows that this is a good way to have a great evening and laugh heartily.

Universities, enterprises, various educational institutions have the opportunity to take part in KVN. The higher league accepts only the best players, giving them more motivation to create new jokes and improve performances. Miniatures, skits and interesting numbers the guys create on their own and this will amuse a lot of people around the world. The main competitions are:

  1. Business card. The team of participants is given a specific topic, from which they must present themselves, as well as their own city. Of course, all this should be in a humorous way.
  2. Warm up. The jury, rivals and people from the audience ask certain questions, to which the participants should find the most ridiculous answer in a short time.
  3. Homework (from 3 to 7 minutes the team must submit a story, invented independently, with musical inserts).
  4. Competition of one song (the final stage, where the participants choose absolutely any song, remake it to a humorous mood and present to the audience).

In addition, there are also video contests, as well as biathlon and triathlon. But they are not used in every game. Although the rules in them are just as cruel and cope with them will be only professionals in their field.

The prototype of the transfer

Some time before the moment when the Club of Merry and Inventive came out on the screens, there was such a program called "Evening of gay questions". Here questions were asked to viewers and jury members, and, of course, humor was judged. In Soviet times, it was the most popular and fun program that everyone liked to watch, and many would like to take part in it.

Despite the fact that this program was very popular, it only aired three times. The hosts decided to hold an interesting contest, where the audience had to visit the studio in a fur coat and with the New Year's newspaper of last year. But, unfortunately, they forgot to say about the newspaper when announcing the competition, so the next day the hall was filled with a huge number of people in winter outerwear. After this moment the confusion started and the program was closed.

Humorous TV shows at any time were in the first place for family circles who like to spend time together. Therefore, the KVN and its prototype won a really big popularity.


Albert Axelrod was the first to lead the Club of merry and resourceful, but three years later he left the game. After him, the place of the host took Alexander Maslyakov. At that time he broadcast not one, but together with the announcer Svetlana Zhiltsova. It was after the arrival of the new host in the game KVN began to compete teams.

Under uncertain circumstances, the transfer was closed due to the incomprehensible pressure of the Ministry on the organizers, but soon the game was restored and began to gain popularity. There is only one presenter left - Alexander Maslyakov. Initially, he came to the game as a student, but now he is already an experienced presenter and humorist.

Rules of the game

Unforced and fairly simple rules operate in the game. Each KVN team must consist of more than two people, and one of them must be a captain. The leader of the game independently comes up with contests, adding new ones over time, in which all teams must take part.

Participants must joke in each of these competitions and receive jury ratings (from 1 to 5). As a result of each competition, the average score is displayed. Then they are summed up. And, accordingly, the team with the greatest result wins.
