We really enjoyed this show. These performers were unbelievable especially the young ones. The costumes were beautiful and very colorful. Would highly recommend they sell the DVR so we could have brought it home to show our grand children

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

Thanks for this great review and I agree! The good news is that in 2015 Yakov's Show will be at 10am and there will not be a meal. However you will be able to "Wake Up With Yakov...and Laugh Your Yak-Off!" 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
