Alexander Fur: a biography
Alexander Pushnoy was born in Novosibirsk. His parents, neither on the stage nor in creative professions had no relationships. Papa Boris studied Cybernetics, and mother Nina Dmitrievna worked as an economist. But son they become accustomed to the music – was sent to a music school, where Sasha studied for 5 years piano and 12 years presented with a Russian seven-string guitar and tutorial. Independently mastered the tool, Fur then learned to play classical and 6-string.
After graduating from high school Alexander Pushnoy did not go the way of music, and enrolled at the prestigious Novosibirsk state University, Department of physics.

In 1997, he goes with a team of KVN of NSU in Moscow, where in the broadcast the qualifying round of the Highest League presents to the audience his parody of the singer sting. This room instantly makes Alexander Pushnoy known. After graduation, the young man goes to the team of KVN «the Siberian Siberians» and then plays «Children of Lieutenant Schmidt». Then begins his progress on television as a host.
In 2004 Tatyana Lazareva and Michael Schatz invited Fur in his television program «Good jokes» on the role of lead. They invented the competition «APOZH» became extremely popular, although it shows almost the highest ratings.
After the closing of «Good jokes» Alexander Fur began to conduct scientific and educational program «Galileo». All were shot more than a thousand editions. The first program was done at the Munich Studio, and then shooting moved to Moscow. This show was very popular with audiences and was well attended.

For example, during the experience «Termite» Alexander burnt me hand badly.
In 2007 Alexander Pushnoy develop a new program, «Who’s smarter than a fifth grader?», combined entertaining and educational elements. In addition, most domestic stars, had to answer questions from elementary school.

After the Fur has started to play KVN, the musician’s career has faded into the background. In 2004 alone, he began to present his own compositions on his website, and resumed concert activity and that later – in 2010. It was then that he performed together with a group of «Djankoy brothers», and in this composition, the musician toured the cities of Russia and Ukraine so far.
