What a country!
As votes are being counted, we thought we could all use a little distraction and a little optimism as the US undergoes this most American of processes- the presidential election.
Comedian Yakov Smirnoff grew up in Ukraine and found success on the comedy stages of America, performing for Johnny Carson, US Presidents and he had his own sitcom. His unique insight into the differences in cultures made him a unique voice in stand-up during its heyday in the 1980s.
