There’s this Jewish guy, his name is Yakov Naumovich Pokhis. He was born in Ukraine, emigrated to the United States of America, and became a naturlized citizen. That’s the same background as my mother. Well, anyways, this Yakov guy is better known by his professional stage name – Yakov Smirnoff. I gotta tell ya, he is a comedian that is humorous, entertaining, home-spun — heck, he is downright funny!
To learn more about this very unique individual, read the Wikipedia Yakov Smirnoff article and the Comedy Zone Yakov Smirnoff: Comedian Profile.
You might find these Yakov Smirnoff quotes fairly enlightening and insightful.
You might even wish to visit the Yakov Smirnoff Home Page.
To top it all off with Smirnoff, visit YouTube to watch and listen to the Yakov Smirnoff schtick at the 9th Annual Young Comedians Special of some years ago.
