We were disappointed that so much of this show is just on the screen. I prefer live productions. We did not like the food. It came in a box you hold on your lap.

Great family show with dinner. Follow his becoming an American citizen and hear what it means to him! Lots of clean fun jokes and stories. Did you know he has a degree in psychology? Hear his research on married couples' relationships. It is like visiting a marriage counselor with humor.

We were a group of four women. One is very obese. I can't believe she managed to sit in the seat for the entire show. I'm slim, but compared to newer theaters and arenas, the seats were small. The food was AWFUL! Didn't look anything like the picture on the brochure *see attached. Instead of boneless chicken breast, we were... More

Always wanted to see Yakov so finally bought tickets. Your sit in regular theatre seats that are fairly small and pull up a side tray to put the food on. The tray and platter have magnets so the food would slide off but it is very crowded and you are shoulder to shoulder with the people next to you. Unfortunately... More

We did not know what to expect when we booked the show, however, We thoroughly enjoyed this one man show. Of course he was very funny. But what we did not expect, yet were very pleasantly surprised with was his talk about marriage and he really hits that nail on the head. The food was great and unlike "Dixie Stampede"... More

When everyone seems to be critizing America, this comic gives a refresing view of living in America. His delightful comic perspective on all things American is soooo refreshing. We went to the dinner show and found the food to be very good, reasonably priced with the show, and served in a timely fashion. Great dinner show for a very good... More

The show was very good.It was not the first time that I've seen it, and the material has not changed much in the last 12 years. Yakov is very, very patriotic and it was filled with sentimentality and comedy regarding his coming to America! The girl who introduces the show with her rendition of the National Anthem, has the most... More

I recently visited Branson and had the opportunity to attend Yakov's dinner show. It was a terrific experience. Yakov is an intelligent individual who is both funny and philosophical about life. His show will not only give you many belly laughs but touch your emotions deeply, especially if he relates the story of how he came in believe in Santa... More

The show was truly Yakov, just a little toned down because it was a Christmas show. The dinner portion was a little strange, the seats wre fitted with small tables that came up from the side of the chair. It was a bit of a tight fight because everyone had on winter coats. The food was delicious, roast chicken, pulled... More

We have been to Yakov's Theatre and show a few years ago and loved the show. This was our 1st time in Branson for the Christmas shows and we quickly decided to return to Yakov's show since our previous visit left us with great memories and rave reviews. We were disappointed this time with the show which contained a lot... More
