Your favorite top teams from all seasons and throughout the history of the League will come together.
Dnepr is the most experienced humorous team in Ukraine. The team started playing in KVN and became its vice-champion. Two superstars of Ukrainian humor take part in its composition at once – Igor Lastochkin and Yuriy Tkach. In the “League of Laughter”, the team received the title of “Best Legend” and became the owner of the League's winter cup.
Veterans of Space Wars are the champions of the fifth season of the League of Laughter. This is one of the most beloved teams of the audience. The trio of charismatic guys are already well known to both television and YouTube viewers.
“Trio different” is the best female team, refuting the stereotype of the so-called female humor. At the moment, the girls are participants in the project “Women's Quarter” of the studio “Quarter-95”, but at the same time, they continue their activities as a team of the “League of Laughter”. In 2020, Trio Different became the owners of the Summer Cup.
Vinnytsia + Rest Together is a team of frontmen of the two most popular teams of the League, a feature of this tour. In this composition, the team will show the best and favorite numbers of this humorous tandem.
You will see both individual favorite numbers of each of the teams, as well as the most unexpected collaborations of the participants. And, of course, absolutely new miniatures for the topic of the day. You will feel the Ukrainian view of the modern world from the inside and understand that even a full-scale war cannot break the Ukrainian spirit and sense of humor. Because, as they say in Ukraine, we laugh, we don’t give up. (“We laugh, so we don’t give up.”)
Part of the proceeds will be donated to the League of Help, a charitable foundation for helping Ukraine.
After the start of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, none of the mockers remained on the sidelines. Almost all of them are in Ukraine. Some of them joined the Armed Forces of Ukraine, while the majority are volunteers helping the army and the country. But none of them stopped doing humor. From the very beginning of the invasion of the aggressor, the participants of the “League of Laughter” give charity concerts, raise funds and simply cheer up the people of Ukraine.

More:The Ukrainian school in San Francisco invites you to attend a master class on making a wish doll. This event will be hosted by artist-designer and founder of the Glow Art brand Tatiana Protcheva.
Tatiana will show you how to make a winding doll that can make your wishes come true.
It has long been customary in Ukraine that long before the birth of a child, the mother laid a knotted doll in the cradle, which was supposed to inhabit it. It was made from fabric or threads without the help of a needle and scissors. After the birth of the child, the doll remained in the cradle and protected him from all evil. Therefore, she was called Bereginya.
In addition, the amulet was given on a long journey to her husband, son, brother. With a doll made with her own hands, the mother, blessing her daughter for a happy marriage, gave it before the wedding. Such a doll was not supposed to look like a person, so they made it without a face. The beauty of the doll was judged on the taste and skill of its owner. Bright fabric, embroidery and beads were used.
At her master class, Tatyana Protcheva offers to make her own Bereginya, which can decorate the festive table of any event. These dolls, among other things, are able to fulfill your desires.
Price: From $0
