To our query as to whether the comedian easily learned the elements of the Armenian folk dance, Devoyan responded: “He was managing, he was dancing in his style, [and] then he began to joke around. (…) [But] he wanted to understand, present the Armenian art to the world.
“He was fascinated, just fascinated. He was amazed by everything—whether the nature, the Temple of Garni, our treatment. (…) He was very satisfied.”
