Oleg Denisov: Escaped Artist

You can (and should) get a comedian out of Russia, but can you get Russia out of a comedian? Oleg Denisov, a critically acclaimed satirical stand-up and philosopher by training, got out of Moscow and is searching for new ways to laugh, love, feel and be Russian. Offers accepted.
