You’ve seen Yakov on HBO and Showtime and enjoyed his humor on the Tonight Show. He 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. But did you also know that Yakov earned a Master’s degree in Psychology from the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania in 2006? Now, in addition to being a comedian, he is also an adjunct professor at Missouri State University where he teaches a course on happiness and laughter.
In this new one-man show, Yakov uses humor, intelligence and empirical research to showcase how laughter is the gauge of happiness in romantic relationships. Audience members are left in stitches as they enjoy his insightful and laughter-filled philosophies on love, romance and the differences between men and women. In the 80’s his humor helped end the cold war in the war room, now he’s helping to end the cold war in the bedroom.
“Happily Ever Laughter” is a culmination of a concept Yakov has been working on for the last 20 years at his own two-thousand seat theater in Branson, Missouri. It’s there that he created a laboratory of laughter and where four and a half-million of his guests have learned – through laughter – how to extend the honeymoon stage in their own relationships.
Yakov’s comedic style is firmly grounded within his mission statement “to experience happiness and teach it to the world with passion through comedy and sensitivity.” Today, he tours the world enlightening and inspiring audiences with his concept of, “Happily Ever Laughter.”
