Yakov Smirnoff

I love Wikipedia. For instance, it taught me that Yakov Smirnoff (remember him?) is a college professor.

Plus there’s this great quote:

He once told Johnny Carson, “I enjoy being in America: it’s fun, you know, because you have, you have so many things we never had in Russia — like warning shots.” When Carson asked if comedians in the Soviet Union can crack jokes about their leaders, Smirnoff replied, “Of course — once.”
