I would like to tell the good stuff first, but there really isn't anything. Yakov was actually there (I've read that sometimes he isn't), but he isn't funny. He seems to be more of a marriage counselor or therapist in training than a funny guy. Yakov aside, the rest of the show was not good either. After what seemed like... More

This is the one show that in Branson that was the most disappointing and least entertaining. We came to be entertained by a well known comedian not to be counseled about relationships, hear someone dwell upon his past/ex-wife, or be squished in seating and try to eat. He even admitted to focusing on his new variety show. Plus it was... More

We went to the show last spring and it was great as was the dinner. In Nov we made another trip and went to Yakov Dinner Show. She dinner was good, but we were a little disappointed in the show. It was entirely Yakov and no other show. He, for the most part, sat in a chair and did the... More

The show was a disappointment. The comedy was great, all 15 minutes of it. The rest would have been better as a self help seminar. The whole magnet/relationship spiel could have been narrowed to 15 minutes of the show to be tolerable. The dinner conversation was staged, I was given a question to ask... Perhaps Yakov's desire to have fun... More

Yakov is still a good comedian who has a message for us. You might call him a modern day Mark Twain. The show is no longer a musical production or multiple variety acts. Its mostly Yakov imparting his wisdom and experiences to the audience. His patriotism is apparent and his humor is quick. The dinner experience was not outstanding. The... More

Yakov is done with the show that made him famous. He is bored with it, and only gives about 15 minutes of 'Yakov'. The remainder of the show is a lecture from 'professor yakky'. It is a rip-off. He should retire the act, it was fun, but he don't want to do it anymore. All so the show has zero... More

I can reiterate the others' observations about the food. It was lukewarm and very bland--not to mention very difficult to manage a large tray of food while seated in a theater seat and a try-table. Had I known about that aspect, I would have opted out. Regarding the comedy show, it was mildly amusing, but we found the program rather... More

Yakov's show is part immigrant comedy, part couples counseling and part patriotic tribute. Clips of Yakov's appearance on Night Court and a video tribute from Paul Harvey on his amazing 9/11 mural were interesting. Many parts of the show were well worn, and parts of the "dinner conversation" seemed staged. As others have said, the seats were cramped and the... More

Have seen Yakov before but this was the first at his dinner adventure. As usual, he was very good and quite funny. Told some great stories. Have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the seats were small, but an ingenious way to serve a meal. Talking about the meal, that left a little to be desired. Must... More
