2012 Information

There are billboards and ads all over Branson that read: "Danger! Explosive Laughter with Yakov!" It's no joke! Our favorite Russian, Yakov Smirnoff, delivers a dynamite comedy and side-splitting fun and laughter-packed show.

From the heartland of America, this funny philosopher takes your family on a comedic journey filled with love and laughter! Yakov's personal coming to America experience is touching and his take on American culture is absolutely hilarious. His genuine love for America is apparent throughout his show, and his patriotism is positively contagious. As Yakov says, "What A Country," your family will feel like cheering for the red, white, and blue! In this fast-paced production, Yakov takes a turn as the United States President, explores the Laboratory of Laughter, and delivers some razor sharp humor as well as unique insights into life, family, and these United States.

Yakov's authentic Russian Dance Troupe is thrilling as they leap and spin on stage. Speaking of spins...Yakov also uses keen observation and timely wit to comment on the dynamics between men and women. He's even earned his master's degree in applied positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. During his show, Professor Smirnoff provides humorous insight on the indisputable differences between the genders and shows us "Love and Laughter" go hand in hand!

REVIEW: Yakov Smirnoff

Written by PatiCake101

On this trip...we got a chance to see Yakov Smirnoff for the first time. It was great...he is so funny, we both laughed until we hurt. He definitely knows how to work the crowd..and a huge crowd it was..almost full with folks of all ages. Being that it was our first time...we were pleasantly surprised at his show...especially when he talks of his coming to American. He is truly a very patriotic person, and one can just feel his sense of pride when he speaks of coming to this country and be made a citizen. He is very entertaining, and seems to so enjoy making folks laugh. As for his sidekick, "Slim Chance"...oh my, what an entertainer he also is! We hated that we had passed this show up before, but we will be seeing it again...it is a wonderful show.

Amazing Show

I didn't know what to expect - well, I expected a lame show, for some reason.

We were shocked and surprised at this wonderful gem of a show - gem of a man (what an incredibly talented artist!!) - talented cast of dancers.

Slim Chance is the comedic juggler/all-around funny guy who works with Yakov. Absolutely hilarious!!

This is a great show for all ages - not a single inappropriate thing. Very moving, too.

Yakov is wondeful! We giggled the whole night long!
