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 in “Happily Ever Laughter – the neuroscience of romantic relationships.” 

In his new show, audience members enjoy Yakov’s insightful and laughter-filled philosophy on love, relationships and the differences between men and women.

Smirnoff was a regular guest star on the award winning NBC sitcom, Night Court. He has been a popular guest of numerous national TV shows including the Tonight Show. You’ve seen him on HBO and enjoyed his humor in his critically acclaimed Showtime special, “Yakov Smirnoff  from Moscow…Idaho.” 

Yakov has also co-starred in movies with Robin Williams in “Moscow on the Hudson“, Tom Hanks in “The Money Pit“, Meryl Steep and Jack Nicholson in “Heartburn” and Richard Pryor in “Brewster’s Millions.” Yakov was invited to perform at the White House for several presidents and honored guests. President Ronald Reagan called Yakov, “a national treasure.” 

His comedic style is firmly grounded within his mission statement, “to experience happiness and teach it to the world with passion through comedy and sensitivity.”
