It’s not often you have a living legend on the podcast and Yakov Smirnoff is most definitely that. With seven appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, a huge commercial break with Miller Lite and the many ups and downs of trying to make it as a stand up comedian in America as a Russian who doesn’t speak English! Nothing would ever have gotten in his way and he shares the roller coaster he has lived. But no story in this episode captures the spirit of Yakov like his story after 9/11. This is such a great episode and a must listen and share!
