Whatever happened to Yakov Smirnov?
Yakov is doing well in Branson, MO, where he has a full-time gig. I picked up a flyer in Kansas City last summer and was terrified.
I don’t know which is sadder – that Yakov is still around, or that one of you used his schtick as a subject line and the other recognized it. I think the latter.
