Mikhail Zadornov was remembered to most viewers and fans as an implacable satirist, who defiantly denounced world falsity and stupidity. But this is only one side of his life and work. Some admired him and filled the auditoriums, others satirical monologues outraged him. With such boldness and principles, this is quite explicable and predictable. In Grigory Gorin’s play The House That Swift Built, there is an exact phrase about the fate of satirists of all time. “Poets are showered with flowers. Satirists - cobblestones.The satirist who ceased to revolt ended. " In this sense, the satire of Zadornov will always disturb and annoy someone, thereby prolonging the memory of him.

Recall that in 2016, Mikhail Zadornov was the leading social and satirical program "Saltykov-Shchedrin Show" on the NTV channel. Together with the musician Alexei Kortnev and humorist Dmitry Kolchin, the satirist in his corporate style talked about topical issues, sorted out vivid video clips illustrating our reality, and discussed with leading colleagues.

In the film “Unexpected Zadornov” the actor is shown from a new, unexpected and little-known side. The tonality of his last name - fervently and lightly - creates in the project a special atmosphere of warmth and positive emotions. He is presented as he was known only to his relatives and friends. In each episode of this undress life, a unique and touching story is kept.

The film was based on television filming, in which the satirist took part shortly before leaving, where he frankly talks about his life. It was these shots that inspired the creators of the project to search for the unknown Zadornov.

The premiere of the documentary "The Unexpected Zadornov" will be aired on July 20 at 22:30.
