Stanislav Todorov Trifonov (Bulgarian: Станислав Тодоров Трифонов) (born October 18, 1966), known as Slavi Trifonov (Bulgarian: Слави Трифонов), is a Bulgarian showman, actor, singer and viola player born in Pleven (In Bulgarian:Плевен). Trifonov's music genres are pop-folk, pop-rock and punk, but he has experimented with other genres as a part of Ku-ku Band (Bulgarian: Ку-Ку Бенд).

He is the host of Slavi's Show, bTV's late-night talk show. It is styled after the standard U.S. late-night talk shows. Nevertheless, many topics and elements in the show's setup are aimed at providing a specific Bulgarian flavor.

Main script-writers of the Slavi's show are Ivailo Vulchev, Ivo Siromahov, Toshko Iordanov, Dragomir Petrov, Kalinka Todorova.

Trifonov is a professionally trained violist. In the early 1990s, together with several of his classmates at NATFIZ, he created Ku-Ku. In 1996, as a cast member of Kanaleto, he took an active role in the protests that eventually led to the fall of the socialist government. He is both loved and hated in his home country. His current show is one of the most watched, although he is often criticized for his controversial humor. The concept of "Slavi's Show" has changed significantly over the years. Originally, it was based on the classic formula - half of the show he performed a type of "one-man show" (though not exactly - Slavi was often accompanied by other actors and his Ku-Ku Band) and in the other half Slavy introduced a guest. At one point, the show became an arena for political debates before some important elections. Later on, Slavi and his team changed the concept and made the show more music-focused. He held a contest called "I sing in KuKu Band" in order to choose a singer for the band. Every phase of the contest was aired. The contestants had to deal with difficult singing tasks. Finally, because of the growing popularity of the contestants, Slavi decided to continue the contest, turning it into a show. He chose the five most popular contestants (Lora, Liubena, Nadia, Svetlio, Vlado) and let them compete for the grand prize - the winner would have the chance to record an album and to have his or her own show. Meanwhile Slavi participated in the competition Eurovision - Bulgaria. There he triggered a major scandal by stating that the winner was known in advance and the competition was not fair.

In 2005 Slavi steered his show in a different direction. This time, the famous comedians Krasi Radkov, Liubomir Neikov and Viktor Kalev riveted the attention of thousаnds of viewers. Later, Nikolay Stanoev joined the team of actors after being picked by Slavi himself after another contest. In 2006 Liubomir Neikov left Slavi's Show and on his place Slavi Trifonov hired a new comedian actress - Maia Bezhanska.

In 2006 Slavi started a new reality show "Dance with me" and in 2008 he recorded the song "My Love" featured on the Bulgarian edition of Ruslana's international album Wild Energy.
