Yakov Smirnoff Theatre (Closed)

Field review by the editors.

Branson, Missouri

"Watch Yakov go from Red to Redneck!" The Reagan-era Soviet bloc-escapee stand-up comedian -- obscure to the world for 20 years -- has been a superstar in Branson since 1993.

Even if you can't get in to see Yakov's popular show -- which features lots of comedy, patriotism, and Russian dancers -- it's worth swinging by his personal theater to see Yakov's latest zany billboard. "What a country!"
