Yevgeny Vaganovich Petrosyan (Russian: Евге́ний Вага́нович Петрося́н, Armenian: Եվգենի Վահանի Պետրոսյան (Պետրոսյանց); born on 16 September 1945 in Baku, Azerbaijan SSR, USSR) is a Soviet/Russian comedian of Armenian and Jewish descents. He was named in 2005 among the most influential figures in contemporary Russia, in a survey conducted by independent polling agency The Levada Centre. Popular since the days of the USSR, Petrosyan was the host of TV variety show Crooked Mirror.
In recent years Petrosyan became a meme representing unfunny, lame comedy for clueless and older people.
