Yakov Smirnoff Returns to NYC
Yakov Smirnoff, who shot to international fame playing opposite Robin Williams in Moscow on the Hudson, Tom Hanks and Shelly Long in The Money Pit, Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson in Heartburn, Richard Pryor and John Candy in Brewster's Millions, as Yakov Korolenko in the award-winning TV sitcom Night Court, his Showtime Special Yakov Smirnoff From Moscow... Idaho, and starring in the sitcom What A Country!, is back in New York City! The comedy legend will bring his Happily Ever Laughter tour to the beautiful Schimmel Center stage March 23rd for a night of fun and laughter.
Yakov has been selling out Performing Arts Centers and concert venues all over the world, is famous for his comedic way of getting to the heart of the issue. His show is predicated on the theme of his life's observations and the curious pseudoscience and transformation that occur when people laugh together. Tackling everything from relationships to pop culture to political satire, Smirnoff is a master at filtering relatable situations through humor. His recent academic studies reinforce the fact that giving people laughter is serious business, inspiring him to tour the country to spread "Love and Laughter".
Yakov received his Master's Degree in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2006, became a professor at Missouri State University, and will receive his doctorate from Pepperdine University in May.
