Man, I LOOOVE Yakov!
"Is not easy to get out of Russia, because you apply for a visa, they give you MasterCard....
And there are no things like American Express. They give you Russian Express
(acts like he's showing the card, as in the commercial)
....'DON'T LEAVE HOME.'
"My first stop was in Cleveland, Ohio. They made me feel at home in Cleveland. So I had to escape again."
Yakov is now living, painting and performing in Branson, Missouri.
