Fans who loved the comedy of Russian born entertainer Yakov Smirnoff throughout his expansive career on television, the silver screen and Broadway can experience the hilarity once again with Yakov Live!
In his new national tour, audience members will enjoy Yakov’s insightful and laughter-filled philosophy on life, love, family and country. New York Times called his one man show, “warm-hearted, delightful and splendidly funny.”
In his newest endeavor, “The Happily Ever Laughter Tour,” Smirnoff takes his comedy to a new level to showcase laughter’s effects on relationships and envisions a world where sadness and tears are replaced with love and laughter.
His funny philosophies can also be heard at Missouri State University and Drury University where Smirnoff is a professor who teaches about the relationship of love and laughter. He received his master’s degree in psychology from the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania and is a bestselling author.
Whether on stage or in a classroom, Smirnoff’s audiences love him. He is passionate about helping people extend their honeymoon stage of their relationships and “fall in love and laughter all over again.” While in the process of doing so, he leaves his crowd in stitches, fulfilling his promise that you will laugh your Yak-off.
