Yakov is a wonderful entertainer and a very interesting person. We didn't realize, until we visited the theater that he is a talented artist and a generous philanthropist. I could listen to him for hours and he had good talent behind him. Only drawback was the dinner. We ate in the folding theater seats with an ingenious tray arrangement (invented... More

A really enjoyable show and family oriented. Dinner included. It was good, but not spectacular. Yakov met us in the lobby afterward for photos and autographs.

Was a great show with dinner. Dinner was okay, what can you expect when your feeding hundreds of people, But it was edible. The show was funny...But I understand that he will be closing at the end of the year and starting something new. Wouldn't say what of course! Anyway had a good time talking to him after the show...

Assuming all we read is true he has only two more nights in Branson. We went two night ago and had a wonderful time. Yes this is more of a seminar on laughter but it works. The meal was suprisingly very good. Awkward but very good. You eat at a desktop that folds up and out from your seat. Odd... More

This is pretty much a one man show. Yakov had two stand up monologues, but also took about 10 questions about his life and loves. Video and still photos added to the show. The food was great even though it was served in theater seats with pull out trays. If you want something other than bottled water, you need to... More

We paid to see a comedy act, what we got was a motivational lecture! The bit with the magnets and a Lazer pointer are nt part of a comedy routine! His assistant that has the most annoying voice in the world made it worse! He takes five minutes to explain how to eat your very bad meal! Do not waste... More

Yakov has down to earth humor, common sense and a marvelous look on life. The meal was incredibly delicious and served right at your seat. Yakov is also a gifted artist with his works on display and for sale. The gift shop has treasures worth looking at. Don't miss any opportunity to see this great American Comic and Humanitarian.

The show was exceptional for mature audiences. I think it was a little risque for children although youngsters may not have caught the innuendos. I was personally impressed by the opening of the show with the singing of the national anthem. The young lady who sang was very gifted and more than just the first verse was sung. After living...

His Christmas show. Extremely funny and he explains his philosophy of laughter and love. His ending is extremely touching and patriotic. I highly reccommed this performance.
