"Speaking of Birds: Club" White Parrot "" - Wikipet
Television of the 90s is strongly associated with various foreign television series like the legendary Helen and the Boys or Santa Barbara, as well as with cult programs, many of which are still remembered with warmth. “Highlights,” “Guess the melody,” “The Jungle's Name” ... at the very thought of them, you return at that time. Among the most popular programs was including the White Parrot Club. She enjoyed such a popular love that a couple of years ago on some channels there were replays of her releases. And since the illustrious broadcast has an indirect, but related to birds, we decided to tell about its history.
If not for the legendary Yuri Nikulin, the “White Parrot” Club would not have existed. A beloved actor all his life collecting jokes, knew how to tell them well, and the idea of a humorous transmission was born. She was born in 1993. Its co-founders were Yuri Nikulin and Eldar Ryazanov, and the authors were Arkady Arkanov and Grigory Gorin.
Actually, only one issue was originally discussed with the goal of promoting the recently published Anthology of Anecdotes. However, after his overwhelming success, it became clear that continued to be. Ryazanov acted as the leader of the first two issues, later he was replaced by co-hosts Gorin and Nikulin. The national artist was also elected honorary president of the club and unanimously recognized as the "soul" of the entire program.
Yuri Nikulin died in 1997, after which the idea of closing the "White Parrot Club" was even discussed, since no one could replace the actor. But then the club members decided that Yuri Vladimirovich would not forgive them for closing the program, and continued its release in memory of the legendary actor. However, despite the fact that the format remained unchanged: it was still a club of joke lovers, and various celebrities were invited to visit, everyone had the feeling that “something was wrong.” Together with the great actor, the “magic” of the club was gone. Having existed for several more years, the "White Parrot" Club was closed.
