Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Arkady Isaakovich Raikin (October 24 O.S. October 10 1911, Riga, Latvia, Russian Empire - December 17, 1987, Moscow, USSR) was a Soviet stand-up comedian. He led the school of Soviet and Russian humorists for about half a century. Raikin was born into a Jewish family in Riga (today's Latvia), then part of the Russian Empire. He graduated from the Leningrad Theatrical Technicum in 1935 and worked in both state theatres and variety shows. In 1939, he founded his own theatre in Leningrad, where he used skits and impersonations to ridicule the inefficiency of Communist bureaucracy and the Soviet way of life.
