Forgot the text: why Barnaul comedian did not get into the show "Open microphone"

The diamond cutter from Barnaul, Matvey Murzintsev, performed in the new season of the show Open Microphone on TNT. Why did he not go to the next stage?

Matvey, at 34, looks like a teenager due to health problems, and he was joking about this topic. But either because of the first performance on such a steep project, or because Ruslan Bely was closely watching him, Timur Karginov, Slava Komissarenko and Yulya Akhmedova, he was a little confused and forgotten the text. But the judges supported him and helped him continue. Nevertheless, he could not go further.

The judges ambiguously evaluated his monologue. Timur Karginov noted that Matvey performed coolly, but he collapsed and fell on the stage, which was unacceptable at that moment. And Ruslan Bely suggested that he work on the material and come up with a more powerful comedian than just light up a couple of times on the screen.

Matvey told Woman`s Day about how he got into the "Open Microphone" and why he needed it at all.

About myself.Barnaul is my hometown. By profession I am a diamond cutter in fourth-grade diamonds. No kidding, it's true, he graduated from the 42nd college in this specialty.

On the themes of the speech.Well, what is there to hide, this is my life. I have a lack of growth hormone since childhood, so I look at my 34 years old at 12. All this leads to the fact that I often find myself in funny situations.

How I became a comedian.It all started with a stand up show on TNT. I thought that I also have something to tell. I found in the social network the Barnaul group “Standdap Altai” and decided to take a chance. The first performance took place on April 30, 2016 at the bar, I unexpectedly won the prize for the funniest performance of the evening, it was great. Then they said to me: “Come again!”

Impressions of the big stage.This is a great experience, I'm glad it happened. I am only now coming to the realization that I was in Moscow on the big stage in front of the cameras. This is certainly a rewarding experience and it cannot but rejoice, it was very great to talk with comedians from all over the country, beginners and experienced.
