CARNIVALISATION OF CARNIVAL

The article presents a historical overview of political satire shows from the USSR period (both TV and print) and contemporary political satire TV shows. Particular concern was given to the existing Russian TV shows and Russian-language political satire shows popular on Facebook and YouTube (Derzhites’ Tam, Laisvės TV, Lithuania, and Zapovednik, DW, Germany). Bakhtin’s idea of the carnivalesque was used to exemplify the reproduction of the Soviet narratives in the modern political satire selected for the analysis (“carnivalisation of carnival”).
