The Ukrainian stand-up culture has been gaining momentum in the past years. This includes concerts where both amateur and experienced stand-up comedians can perform. Those in Sumy — Feliks Redka, Kostya Yatsenko, and Illya Hlushchenko — decided to support local fans of stand-up and held a concert in one of the bomb shelters.
