One of the brightest participants in the Comedy Woman project, Ekaterina Varnava, after the humorous show closed, concentrated on the acting profession – she plays a dog in the theater with her civil husband, director Alexander Molochnikov, acts in films and hosts shows on TNT and Friday. In an interview with Ekaterina Gordeeva, the artist explained why Comedy Woman was closed, why she was called a fascist and why Klara Novikova is a stand-up.
ABOUT RETURN TO RUSSIA
“Childhood in the GDR? (Catherine’s father served there). I remember school. It was carefree and I didn’t know how it was. And then I came to Russia and understood. You want pineapple, you want frozen ice, you want gum. We returned in 1991. It was not easy for the parents. Mom, being a medical worker, earned hellishly little – she worked as a district doctor. Dad went to the General Staff, and that was other money. Everything that we have accumulated has been invested in MMM. But I had other problems. I had to adapt at school in Konkovo. I didn’t even know what it could be that there are no friends and girlfriends. The first thing that I was told when I was introduced: “Katya came to us from Germany.” Immediately I heard the word “Fascist” for the whole class “

ABOUT KLARA NOVIKOV
“Clara Novikova is amazing. Great stand adapter. We once hosted an event where she performed. For two hours, while we talked with people, she sat at the bar and constantly wrote something down. Not in the dressing room and not in the hotel. And she wrote down the names of people, toasts, and immediately invented jokes on them. Such an interactive. And she came out and just tore apart the uneasy adult audience! That is, it seems like an artist, but his own. 40 minutes of brilliant stand-up “
ABOUT ALEXANDER MOLOCHNIKOV
“If we work actively, we miss each other, but at the same time we are in a state of absolute love, openness, support and understand that we have a very similar state: a successful rehearsal or not. There is no time and energy to pry on each other. This is the perfect relationship formula. He is very changeable in mood, unpredictable and impulsive. And I also spend. And at first there were moments like this [столкновения]when I said, “Hey, wait.” But now I am happy, I am in an absolutely harmonious state. If we speak now, then I represent the family with him [Молочниковым], and we will have a child and a dog, and we will take a walk as a big friendly family. Such thoughts inspire me. Sasha too, but I cannot speak for him. Maybe he would have answered differently “

ПРО COMEDY WOMAN
“It turned out that the show was closed, but the tour is not over yet. Scheduled for six months in advance. But there was a quarantine. All were closed to their homes. It all ended abruptly. There was some kind of understatement, understatement, dislike. So much resentment and pain appeared suddenly. It’s native. For so many years I lived it. And it just ends instantly? I have no one to forgive. I was not abandoned. We became colleagues, the relationship was different, which is more painful. They discussed the closure of the project with me, I did not agree. I was told that I needed a pause. I said no, let’s pause – everything will close, we must continue. We are told: you are losing speed, form, relevance, we still need to think. I advocated that you have to move. In the end, the decision was made without me. The project has closed “
“Recognition, of course, is there. I can wear glasses or a mask, and they still recognize me. But besides the fact that I worked on TV for 15 years, I am associated exclusively with plastic surgery. Most people, no matter what I do and no matter what project I release, people say one thing: it was she who remade herself. I’m not worried about that. I redid it and am happy with it “
