Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Vakov Smirnoff.
Thursday March 21st For Two Shows 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM.

Yakov's comedic style is firmly grounded within his mission statement "to experience happiness and teach it with passion through comedy and sensitivity". Nowhere are these principles more evident than in his two children, Natasha and Alexander. Yakov continues to develop his comedy to reflect the dynamics between men and women, the happiness that can be found inside oneself, and a celebration of the spirit of life. The depths of Yakov's development from naive young immigrant to gentle, loving patriot can be found throughout his show. When Branson's Two-Time Comedian of the Year isn't performing for sold out shows at his own theater in the heartland of America, Yakov likes to travel and appears at select venues across the United States.
 
Yakov’s movie credits include “Moscow on the Hudson” with Robin Williams, “Brewster’s Millions” with Richard Pryor, “The Money Pit” with Tom Hanks and “Heartburn” with Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep. His many television credits include Showtime’s ACE Award nominee “Yakov Smirnoff from Moscow…Idaho,” as well as his own 1986 syndicated series “What a Country.” In the early months of 2003, Yakov appeared in his one-man Broadway Show, “As Long As We Both Shall Laugh” at the American Airlines Theatre in New York City. During the show Yakov invites everyone to celebrate the differences between the genders.
 
It has been quite a journey for the man who became an American citizen on July 4, 1986, when he was sworn in (by Chief Justice Warren Burger) at the Statue of Liberty. The immigrant who, in 1977, landed in this country with his parents and less than $100 in his pocket has grown to become a command performer at the White House, a respected comedic voice, cultural observer, and family man. As Yakov says, “What A Country”! Since his rebirth in the United States, the comedian maintains his topical edge, traveling the world of comedy, and sharing his insightful discoveries.

  • Kevin McCaffery
    December 16, 2017 at 8:00 PM Kevin McCaffery
    Kevin McCaffrey is a comedian & writer based out of New York City. He made his network TV debut on The Late Show with David Letterman in November of 2013 (after which he was hired to do warm-up for the show), and he currently appears every week on truTV Presents: World’s Dumbest. He has also appeared on VH1’s I Love the 2000s, History Channel’s I Love the 1880s, and The List on the WWE Network. Kevin hosts College Stories with Kevin McCaffrey, a weekly podcast talking to comics, writers, and actors about their time in college, and their best/funniest/craziest stories from that time.
     
    Originally from Chicago, he graduated from Ball State University despite the school’s general policy of taking attendance. Since then he has been a contributing monologue writer for The Late Show with David Letterman. Kevin has also appeared on The Late Show many times as an actor, once being hosed down by Dave with a fire extinguisher. To his knowledge, this is an honor Kevin shares only with Richard Simmons.
     
    When asked to describe his exceedingly unique brand of comedy, Kevin says, “What I do, is I try to say stuff that’s funny.” That’s how avant-garde he is! As a performer, he relies on content more than volume; he’s not the crazy props guy, the crazy angry guy, or the crazy fat guy. At least not yet.
