Yakov was an art teacher back in Odessa. His comedy speaks of America with love. LarryBnDC, although I had the honor of meeting the man, I thought of Tim Russert as my Sunday friend with his incredible intelligence and wit. He is misssed.

Too much for me to solve!

Great story, PaBaldy. Yakov used to have a tag line that was shared by my friend, the late Tim Russert, "What a Country!"

PaBaldy - thank you for sharing.

How lovely to find out so much more about him PaBaldy..a true renaissance man!!
Love the avatar Di Boop smile!!!! That's a cute one!!

Wow! Great story! I am glad I got on just to read your story PaBaldy.

Sufferin Succotash!

I just researched this on the internet Donna.
He was an art professor at Odessa Pedagogical University in Ukraine before starting his comedy career in the United States, and he remains a talented artist.

After the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade centers, he began working on a mural to commemorate the event. Just in time for the first anniversary of the event, the mural was printed on a huge banner, with the quote "The human spirit is not measured by the size of the act, but by the size of the heart." It was hung from a nearby building where it was clearly visible from Ground Zero for over a year. Yakov financed the banner with $100,000 of his own money, but kept his donation anonymous, for fear that people would see it as a joke because of his reputation as a comedian.

Donna no one I spoke to knew of his hidden talent. The theater had a featurette before the show, but he never mentioned it. He did tell us that he just recently finished his Masters at U of Penn and His thesis was on Humor as it relates to lasting love and amicable relations.

How fascinating!!! I didn't know he was an artist as well!! I do find him very entertaining.. glad you had such a good time PaBaldy!!!
