Long-term practice shows that making people laugh is not the easiest profession. A clown or a humorist has to keep a smile on his face under any life circumstances. Yan Arlazorov brilliantly performed humorous monologues.
Childhood and youth
Nothing foreshadowed Yana Arlazorov's profession of an artist. He was born on August 26, 1947 in an intelligent Soviet family. Parents, originally from Ukraine, lived in Moscow. My father was engaged in advocacy. Mother, Arlazorova Raisa Yakovlevna, worked as a surgeon in one of the city polyclinics. Her surname was taken by the actor when he received his passport. Jan's childhood was not difficult. However, he also had to endure serious troubles. The boy's appearance served as the basis for serious experiences - he grew up plump and good-natured.
On one of the harsh days, the head of the family took his son to the martial arts section. However, Jan did not like at all to reward the opponent with punches and receive reciprocal slaps in the face. He tried in every possible way to evade classes. As a result, the father gave up on this venture and left the boy alone. At school, Arlazorov studied well, although there were not enough stars from the sky. For the time being, I did not think about future vocational guidance. But one day, his grandfather, who was a professional actor, took him to the theater studio at the Palace of Pioneers.
Having received a certificate of maturity, Yang no longer doubted who he was. The young man brilliantly passed the entrance exams at the Shchukin Theater School. Student years flew by as one day. After completing his studies, the certified actor received a referral to the Central Children's Theater of the capital. Arlazorov organically joined the troupe and was instructed to represent a variety of characters on the stage. From the very first days, children and adolescents fell in love with a kind and cheerful actor who easily found contact with young viewers.
In 1974, Arlazorov was invited to move to the Mossovet Theater. On this stage, he served for almost fifteen years. In the late 80s, the actor began to try his hand at the stage. His humorous monologues were received by the audience to thunderous applause. His catch phrases and expressions "Hey, man" and "Man, you yourself understood what you said?", As they say, went to the people. Yang became one of the first artists of the spoken genre to contact the audience. The comedian was regularly invited to participate in the TV program "Full House".
Recognition and privacy
Yan Arlazorov worked hard and with passion. In 1997 he was awarded the honorary title "Honored Artist of the Russian Federation". In 2008, for his great services in the development of national culture, the artist was awarded the "Order of Honor".
The personal life of the famous comedian was extremely unfortunate. He married the actress Yele Sanko for the only time. They had a daughter. However, the family broke up due to material problems. The wife took her daughter and did not allow her to see her father.
Yan Arlazorov died in March 2009 after a serious cancer.
