My kids loved the show and the dinner. It is a pretty good show and the food was pretty good. Not a great as the Dixie Stampede but I would recommend it for families.

This was about your average acrobatic show. I've seen similar ones in Florida and California. The performers made a few small errors but they went on like it was nothing. I wouldn't watch it again, but it was definitely okay.

It was several years ago at a reunion of some of us who served together in Viet Nam. We went to a variety of shows. In our opinion this one was the best. It was not only entertaining, but because of his Russian background he provided a unique perspective and appreciation of his new country.

Saw Yakov many years ago and he was hysterical. So, needless to say, when I saw he was still there years later, I had to see him again. I was not disappointed. His humor is good clean fun and the dinner surprisingly enough, for so many people, was good. I would definitely recommend seeing him if you haven't before.

We did the dinner show. Once the show started, it was very entertaining. Yakov knows how to work the audience, A little pricey, but ok for a special treat.

Thanks for the good review! In 2015 Yakov will be doing a morning show at 10am; so there will not be a meal. We say, "Wake Up With Yakov and Laugh Your Yak Off!" The show will contain his patriotic comedy and also his take on the relationship between men and women. Hope you can come back for that too! More

First visit to this tourist city, and was impressed with the variety of options. We stayed at a relative's timeshare unit on a lake, so that it was peaceful and quiet. In Branson we visited the shops, a couple restaurants, and two shows. There is much to do there, so everyone's taste should be accommodated.

Thanks for the good review! And for the good review of Branson - we do offer something for everyone and have a variety of world-class shows - including Yakov's! :) In 2015 Yakov's show will be at 10am - so there will not be a dinner but there will still be plenty of BIG laughs! More

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
