Description:

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.

call before you go

I talked to a local who is in the tourist industry and they said that Yakov Smirnov is no longer performing. I believe him, but if you are wanting to go, please call first.

You are worn out when the show ends because you have laughed so hard and so long. I felt like this was new material used for the first time even I am sure it was not. It is a show that you will enjoy from start to finish. If you want to laugh then come on in.

This is a wonderful show. I absolutely loved the whole performance. The theater is an older one an not on the main strip. I see that as a plus to get away from traffic. It was well worth the money. I forget the exact amount but think it was like forty bucks per person. A don't miss in my book!

Sadly enough Yakov doesn't perform every night in Branson at his theater like he use to. However he does come back and do shows on occasion. You will literally kick yourself if you miss this show when he is performing in Branson. He is the funniest entertainer in the Branson area. Good Clean Family Comedy and they also serve a... More

This guy is funny and entertaining. The first time. We have gone 3 times, in different seasons, too much lap over material in each show. Would highly recommend first timers though. Nice seating, nice gift shop, great restrooms, ample parking.

Holds your attention through the whole show never laugh at someone so much as we did. Jokes are family approved.
