I can honestly say that i went in thinking i would hate the show....If you mom ever told you to never judge a book by its cover, she was right. The show was funny and clean, great for the whole family. I laughed and cryed....This show was not just entertaining but he gives you a few lessons and has you stop and think about things that we just do in are everyday life. What a show and what an artise...He can put on a great show and make great art... Yep this is one show that will make the branson vacation one to remember...

The show was awesome. The jokes and yakov's stories will have you rolling with laughter. The dancing and the skits that are performed are great as well. Yakov proved his appreciation to everyone when he stayed and signed autographs for all who wanted one.
-- Dave Johnson - Billings, MT
It was a great and wonderful show with lots of good clean humor. It was very refreshing to be able to attend a comedy hour with nothing but laughter and inspiration throughout the show. It was god and country all the way. It made you well up inside at times.
-- Linda Plott - Marlin, Texas
Yakov was awesome. We had seen his show several years ago and loved it. He is so funny, sincere, & patriotic. Every person in the usa should see this show. He makes you appreciate our wonderful country & bring out how blessed we are in this country. Thanks for a great show, yakov.

Have seen yakov before. Enjoyed the show, but didn't really like the fact that audience participation was involved. Seems like laziness on the part of yakov.

Like him better 3 years ago than this time. This time seemed to be more of a college course, where before it was more entertainment.

Russian born, now american yakov smiroff makes fun of his ethnicity to show his love for his new country and makes you laugh and cry along the way. A brilliant comedian can even make some old jokes funny. Could have done without the russian cosak dancers in between bits

Great show and i would recommend it it was my second time seeing his show and much of it was the same, but i enjoyed it just the same.
-- Maryann Post - St,petersburg, FL
I briefly remembered yakov from a few television spots in the early 90s, but had never seen any of his actual material. It turns out he's just as good on his own, offering family comedy with a patriotic twist. Good stuff.
-- Scott Andrews - Kansas City, MO
Very funny and wholesome entertainment. Would recommend it highly.
-- Ronald Harris - Noblesville, IN
-- Edgar Gibbs - West Jordan, UT
Very funny. It is great if you are american. The same holds true for the immigrants that come here and are given a chance to excel in their selected fields. We could hold the same theme show in any of our casinos and we canadians would stand up and cheer.. We should do that!!!
-- John Forsdike - Aylmer, 0
We laughed ourselves silly! His relief man is as funny as he is. Current material, props, costume changes, and more were used to enhance the experience. We liked it so well, we bought the dvd and had our picture taken with yakov.
-- Dean Sullivan - 8164 Landstar, MI
-- Vicki Rosine - Lebo, KS
Saw yakov in oct and was so humbled by his love of this country. His patriotism left me feeling as tho there is a place in this vast country that could assimilate all peoples. Sue armstrong, murchison, tx

Loved the show. A good mix of fun and seriousness. It made me very proud to be an american.
-- Donna Peacock - Granbury, TX
Very good show. Would like to have seen more comedy instead of dancing. Seats were not preserve, i would think that purchasing seats 4 weeks ahead would have rated better seats..
-- William Karr - Rockford, IL
