True, it is rumored that Mikhail Zhvanetsky put in a good word for Rostislav, whom Valery Khait in a friendly manner asked to pat for his son.

Creative way

Almost simultaneously, “Radio Day” and “Election Day”, saturated with topical satire, appeared on the screens, which became absolute hits of the box office and glorified Rostislav Khait and the rest of the Quartet I in the entire post-Soviet space.

This was followed by an equally successful painting, “What Men Talk About,” which finally cemented their success. The following pictures with the participation of Hait and the company were accepted with a bang by the audience: “What else are men talking about”, “Faster than rabbits”, “Wonderland”.

Quartet And

At the invitation of his brother, the beginning artist from the beginning of the 90s participated in the recordings of the program "Gentleman Show". The programs were aired on RTR, ORT, and Ukrainian Inter. In 1995, the creators of the show received the TEFI Award. But Rostislav dreamed of his own project. In 1993, Khait together with Leonid Baraz, Alexander Demidov, Kamil Larin and Sergey Petreikov created a humorous theater called “Quartet I”.

The Quartet's debut took place on the GITIS stage: the guys staged the first performance “These are all cliches”. The performance was successful. Artistry and humor were worthily appreciated by classmates and teachers. The guys, inspired by their first success, continued to work together. Soon, the artists staged new performances. At first, Muscovites appreciated the work, but then crowded rooms and constant full houses pushed Quartet I to tour the country. Then the theater-goers presented an opportunity to enjoy performances and spectators in the CIS countries.

Rostislav Chait, along with colleagues from the humorous quartet, is known not only as an actor, but also as a wonderful host of celebrations and concerts. Together with friends, Rostislav participated in the broadcast "Mexican villains", which was broadcast on the air of Our Radio.

Actor Rostislav Chait

Fame Rostislav Chait and colleagues brought performances, scripts for which the artists wrote together. First of all, it is Radio Day. Sparkling humor and a brilliant game of charming young actors, the audience appreciated immediately. Hait and colleagues continued to work in the direction that brought success. Soon the performances "La Comedy, or We will entertain you with all the means that are good." Then on stage were played "Acting Games" and the continuation of "La Comedy." A new project called “Election Day”, in which the emphasis was on politics, also brought success.


The film debut of Rostislav Chait took place in 1990. The young artist appeared in the episode of the crime drama Vadim Derbenev “The Hunt for the Pimp”, where the main characters were played by Andrei Sokolov, Igor Vernik, Aristarkh Livanov, Vera Sotnikova, Tatyana Dogileva. The next time, Rostislav starred after 12 years in the comedy of Ivan Dykhovichny “Money”. This was the first film in which members of the Quartet I comic theater appeared together on a movie screen. The producer of Our Radio Mikhail Kozyrev and the stars of the comedy genre Andrei Krasko and Nonna Grishaeva also participated in the film.

In 2007, a new stage in the cinematic biography of Rostislav Khait began. The Quartet decided to transfer creativity to the big screen. So the audience of the country saw the comedy directed by Oleg Fomin “Radio Day”, and a year later - “Election Day”, which was shot by Dmitry Dyachenko with the participation of the production center Alexander Tsekalo. Rostislav Chait and colleagues woke up famous.

The children succeeded in strengthening stellar success by means of the adaptation of the remaining performances. The theater project “Middle-aged Men Talking about Women, Cinema, and Aluminum Forks” turned into a hit of Russian cinema, and the actors won the fame of the stars. In 2010, participants in the comedy theater became producers and screenwriters of the film "What Men Talk About", in which they played the main roles. The comedy was shot in the genre of road movie and in the Russian box office raised $ 12 million. The musical accompaniment for the film was created by the forces of the Bi-2 group.

A year later, the artist’s filmography was replenished with a new work - a continuation of the sensational comedy entitled “What else are men talking about,” in which already familiar characters were shown in the New Year’s setting. Rental fees exceeded the previous record by $ 7 million.

In 2013, the actors began filming the next theatrical masterpiece of the same name, “Faster than Rabbits.” In the new project, Rostislav acted as a screenwriter and lead actor. Music for the comedy was written by the participants of the Agatha Christie duet - brothers Vadim Samoilov and Gleb Samoilov.

These tapes received the love of the audience for their easy and truly subtle humor. Films are filled with witty dialogues that you want to memorize and quote. In these tapes, Rostislav Chait appeared in the image of a hero named Slavik. He is a radio presenter and creative creator in the elections.

In many of the projects in which Rostislav Chait participated, there is a sharp satire on modern politics. In "Election Day" and its continuation there are many attacks against current politicians. But the comedy “Faster than Rabbits” is a story about three friends-revelers who spent such a stormy day that in the morning the merry men took a lot of effort to recall the events the day before.

One of the last comic projects in which Rostislav Chait appeared is the comedies Election Day 2 and Wonderland. The premiere of the second film took place on January 1, 2016. Once again, the authors of the script were Rostislav Khait, Leonid Barats and Sergey Petreikov. In the film, Rostislav got the role of the auditor Viktor Nikolaevich.

Football and scene

At first they dreamed of becoming footballers. The older brother taught him to kick the ball, after which any more or less spacious ground could become a football field for him. The Odessa apartment in which Chait lived with his parents, brother, grandparents, consisted of two adjacent rooms, the opening between them became the gateway to which he aimed, but regularly got out the window.

Grandmother called him a “sanctuary” for this, but Slava did not know more severe punishments - and continued to do whatever he wanted with the ball.

The realization that football players wouldn’t work out came to them with Baraz in middle school. Then they drew attention to the scene: to play and parody classmates was their second favorite pastime. After school, it was decided to go to Moscow, to enter GITIS.

Even in Odessa, friends agreed: if one does not enter, the second also picks up the documents and leaves. The surname of Baraz was named the second of the fifteen applicants. To the fourteenth point, Slava looked at Pale Lesha and frantically wondered what he would say to his friends in Odessa. Fortunately, the fifteenth was called Chait.

Now he is not embarrassed, he admits, - he did it by pulling, thanks to a call from Mikhail Zhvanetsky to the institute, about which Father Rostislav asked. Zhvanetsky was visiting their Odessa apartment, but only a few years ago he realized for whom he had once requested the leadership of GITIS.

“Zhvanetsky began to identify me five years ago. Before that, I greeted him about thirty times. But he did not remember me. Well, some kind of bald young man greets him - how many of these pass before him, ”Chait said.

At the variety faculty of GITIS, from a duet with Leonid Baraz turned into a quartet.

From potatoes to the theater

They met with Alexander Demidov on the collective farm, where they sent the course to dig potatoes. Before meeting with Odessa residents, Demidov did not drink alcohol, but then he immediately had to drink ginger tincture. The last to join the company was Camille Larin, who had previously entered GITIS three times, but only in the fourth - successfully.

When an acting teacher once noticed that their joint studies are always successful, the guys first thought about creating their own theater.

“In general, the idea of ​​creating a theater arises for each course of graduates. But there is a great distance between the idea and the embodiment. We did it, ”says Hait.

Before the performance, which made them famous - “Radio Day” - everything happened. The four of them were looking for sponsors for performances, worked in night clubs and host weddings. Once at a corporate party, tipsy drivers literally drove artists off the stage - this was the shortest performance of the Quartet in history.

The production of “Radio Day” was the first when Hait and friends did not see empty seats in the hall. After this, things went uphill: “Election Day,” “Talking to Middle-aged Men,” and their other works invariably became hits first on the stage and then on the screen.

Now Rostislav has all the attributes of a successful, successful man. Except family.

“Unmarried Glory”

His hero in most of the performances and films of the Quartet And is largely attributed to Rostislav himself. Since the time of their first popularity, fans have been closely watching his personal life and see in her luxurious beautiful girls replacing one another.

But Chait had serious novels. The first happened in the institute years and lasted until the premiere of Radio Day. The actor does not name the girl, but calls their relationship one of the most important in life.

They met on the Odessa beach and continued to communicate in Moscow. Together with Slava, she experienced periods of lack of money, lack of work, and sometimes food. Having overcome all this, they could not save their love.

“It became terrible when I started quarreling with my girlfriend. These are the first serious negative emotions that I experienced in my life. Before, we never had a fight with her at all, ”Chait admitted.

After their separation, he did not seek a serious relationship. Remember the scene from the movie “What are the men talking about?” In which Slava introduces all his mistresses to his wife? There were no fewer women in Hait’s life, but there was no one to meet them. The place of the wife of the 46-year-old actor has been and remains vacant so far.

They say that he can be occupied by a friend of Rostislav Olga Ryzhkova, with whom they have been together for five years. The second longest relationship also began on the beach in Odessa - Hait began to care for the girl, despite the fact that she was not free. Recently, Olga’s finger flaunts a golden ring that looks like a wedding ring. But the couple is in no hurry to disclose their wedding plans.

Childhood and youth

Rostislav, like many legendary comedians, was born in Odessa. The boy was born on September 21, 1971 in a creative family where father Valery Khait, a Jew by nationality, was the captain of the Odessa KVN team from 1967 to 1970. Later, Valery engaged in prose, drama and poetry, published several books.

In addition to Rostislav, the family grew up his son Eugene, who followed in his father's footsteps and for 8 years was the art director of the popular "Gentleman Show". Eugene taught his younger brother to play football, so from the age of 4 Rostislav had been chasing the ball on the street and around the apartment. Studying in elementary grades, the boy enrolled in the football school of the Odessa club Chernomorets.

In the 1st grade of school No. 119, where Rostislav Khait went, the boy met Leonid Barats. This friendship was decisive in the life of students. Together, the children drove football and attended the theater club, which operated at the school. Here they went on stage, playing in amateur performances.

Rostislav Khait informed his relatives about the dream of becoming an artist, being a 3rd grade student. Even then, the boy knew that the acting profession was the only one he dreamed about. Therefore, at the end of school, Chait did not think where he would go: there was no alternative to a theater university.

The question was which institute and where the future artist will be storming. Rostislav decided not to trifle and went to conquer Moscow. He arrived in the capital with his faithful friend Leonid Baraz. The youths first entered GITIS, where they attended the course of Vladimir Korovin. A diploma was awarded to Rostislav Khait in 1993, after graduating from the variety department.
