The name Yakov Smirnoff should ring a bell. He is the funny Russian comedian of the 80s, exclaiming with wide-eyed enthusiasm “What a country!” After immigrating to the U.S. and becoming a citizen in 1977, he soon appeared on the Johnny Carson Show and in movies alongside Robin Williams, Jack Nicholson and Tom Hanks. Most astonishing is how his brand of humor remains timeless and serves as a reminder that laughter does not have to come at someone else’s expense. In this sense, Smirnoff is both a pioneer and a throwback to a time of comedic giants like Billy Crystal, Steve Martin and Chevy Chase.
