Since 1989 Monroe had been the permanent leader of the "Pirate Television" that he created together with Juris Lesnik and Timur Novikov. the "Pirate Television" had enlightened the alternative news of cultural life of Leningrad. The Russian Museum owns the Unfortunate Life (1993) series where the history of Merlin Monroe is presented on the background of St. Petersburg architecture. In 1997 Mamyshev presented in Russian Museum the Russian Questions project, where he had turned to the most painful problems of contemporary life. In 2006 Mamyshev-Monroe played the role of famous Soviet actress Lubov Orlova in the new versia of Volga-Volga film (deputy directors P.Labazov and A.Silvestrov).
