People's Artist of Russia, a sewing equipment master-adjuster, an honorary citizen of Odessa, an inveterate football fan - it is difficult even to list all the facets of a personality that has entered the history of art forever under the name Roman Kartsev. He toured the Soviet Union, performed in Australia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Israel, the USA, and everywhere he was accompanied by success, the incessant laughter of the audience, who were lucky enough to get a ticket to his concert. What is the secret of Kartsev's popularity? Location: Location:
A talented boy was born in Odessa on May 20, 1939. From his father, who became a football referee after the war, he inherited his passion for this sport. But Roman's main passion was art. While still at school, he was nicknamed "artist" for his funny tricks and constant performances at amateur performances. On stage, Roman was so good that he was not even taken to drama school. Not often the selection committee says to the applicant: "You are a born actor, we already have nothing to teach you!"
After graduating from school, Roman worked at a garment factory, and in his free time he played the domra, danced, practiced pantomime and acrobatics, and performed in three amateur groups at once.
A decisive role in the creative fate of Kartsev was played by the student theater of miniatures "Parnas-2", where he met Mikhail Zhvanetsky and Viktor Ilchenko. The magnificent performance of Zhvanetsky's humorous miniatures in 1970 brought the Kartsev-Ilchenko duet a laureate at the All-Union competition of pop artists, and over the years - nationwide popularity. For thirty years Kartsev went on stage with Ilchenko, together they played about five hundred works of Zhvanetsky, but in 1992 Ilchenko died. Kartsev dedicated the solo performance "My Odessa" to the memory of his friend and has been performing alone ever since.
Critics consider Kartsev's best film role to be Shvonder in the television movie Heart of a Dog based on the play by Mikhail Bulgakov. But the actor himself is more like the role of Boyarsky, which he played in the very "Odessa" film "Bindyuzhnik and the King".
Roman Kartsev wrote two books: "Small, Dry and Writer" (2001) and "I Dreamed of Chaplin …" (2011). However, he calls himself not a writer, but an artist who improvises on paper. Real talent can handle all genres!
