Yakov the famous Russian Comedian has performed shows in Branson Missouri...

Yakov the famous Russian Comedian has performed shows in Branson Missouri since 1993. He owns a beautiful theater that is the first one you'll see as you arrive in Branson from the North on US Hwy 65. The theater is currently showcasing performances by the Acrobats of China featuring the New Shanghai Circus. In 2015 Yakov did his last Branson performance on December 3 and does not have shows scheduled in Branson for the 2016 season. As far as Yakov's show goes - he takes you on a comedic journey packed with tall tales and witty perceptions, funny facts and huge laughs. Laugh Your Yak Off! Along with explosive laughter Yakov delivers a show filled with patriotic pride. When Yakov says, "What A Country!" You'll feel like cheering for the red, white, and blue. What A Show! His current show also is an intriguing blend of comedy and wisdom focusing on the dynamics between men and women - "Living Happily Ever Laughter"! While at Yakov's Theatre visit the gallery in the lobby featuring many of Yakov's artworks.

He did a nice job, The first half was hard to follow, but the second half hit a home run. I do not think he is performing anymore, but worth the money to see one of the original Branson performers

The Chinese Acrobats from China were really outstanding. It was a shame the 8 PM show on Monday was not sold out. These are disciplined athletes worth watching especially if you get the tickets free from visiting one of the time share offers.

It was o.k. and my husband enjoyed it more than I did. I must say he is a very patriotic person and that says a lot for him. I don't think I would see it twice.
