Yakov Smirnoff will be sure to make you laugh when he returns to the Branson stage in 2021! His hilarious take on all things American, and his humorously heartfelt observations on life and love, and the joys of navigating the ups and downs of both, have kept Yakov on our comic radar for years.
We first fell in love with this charming Russian immigrant back in the 70s and 80s when he dominated television talk shows with his stand up comedy, and then stole the movie spotlight from huge artists like Jack Nicholson, Tom Hanks, and the late and much loved Richard Pryor and Robin Williams. His movie roles include Brewster’s Millions, Moscow on the Hudson, The Money Pit, and Heartburn — on television, he had a recurring role on Night Court. He was also honored to count President Ronald Reagan among his friends, having served as part of the late President’s speech writing staff.
