My husband, son and i saw six for the first time in 2007 and we absolutely loved the show, the brothers, and the wonderful witness you gave about your loving christian mother. Such an awesome talent you have all been blessed with and a performance for all to see. Once again, branson has pulled in a true family of entertainers with an entire show that is funny, entertaining, and clean. We appreciate your willingness to bring family shows at a reasonable price. Dinner was not an option when we saw you the first time, so we hope to enjoy that and the show at a future date.

Yakov Smirnoff Show
We absolutely loved the show, it was so funny and the additional entertainment was great. Can't wait to come back. He was so gratuitous in signing pictures when the show was over as well as having his picture taken with the people attending. Just a wonderful person, and a show we will definitely attend during our next trip to branson.
