    Yakov was terrific! the show was half standup and half humorous lessons on life, relationships and love. I didn't realize he has a Masters in Psychology. I have spent a lot of money on relationship counselors and have taken away far less than he gave in his 90 min show. Check out the L.A. Times review of his show.

      I agree. I learned more from that one show than I've learned from many other life relationships and experiences. And the irony was, it was meant to be a stand up comedy show. He was terrific! I'd see it again and again!

    Really enjoyed it. His tribute to his parents was touching, his relationship psychology was well-out, his joie de vivre was infectious.
    Thanks for organizing!

      Any chance you'll have the opportunity to get another group in the show? I'm happy to help organize another show if you can arrange the tickets.

    One of the best meetups I've ever attended. Many kudos to Annette and Lionel for the effort they put into making this happen. And thanks to all in our meetup family that shared the laughter. This only enhanced our GIfT

    Update. I tried to buy a ticket at 5:05 and they stopped selling them at 5pm. Any suggestions? Any room in our group?

    September 14, 2013

  • Dennis

    Could somebody please repost the link to buy tickets? I can't seem to find that for some reason.

    September 14, 2013

    • Dennis

      I found tickets through Goldstar for $20. I would rather buy someone a drink. Any chance I can join in with the group? Can I just show up and be ready in case just one RSVPer does not show up? Will I be able to take their place? I wanna laught tonight. This guy is a riot!

    To: All "YES" List People

    Expect to have a great FREE time! ACME is a small theater so it will be very easy to see the MEETUP sign. Norma and Diane will be helping me to greet you.
    I look kind of like my photo but much better in person. :)

    Please be on time or even early. Parking is street and valet.
    THERE will be a SIGN IN sheet at this meetup and you do need to sign in. That being said, if something has changed your ability
    To attend, we will miss you and you're going to miss a great show and Change your RSVP now so that someone on the waiting list can attend. (I thought that run-on sentence would get your attention). :)

    LIonel, I hope you have some time for yourself, besides addressing all our concerns. I still need some clarification about "attending under our own name." I'm listed in the attending section as "Edwardleegee." My name is Edward Lee Goldstein. Will there be any problems getting in to see the show if my will call is under my meetup name versus my real name?

    September 12, 2013

    • ***MsA***

      Thank you for providing your full name.

      September 12, 2013

    Just to reiterate... If you have a +1, +2, +3 you will have to buy a ticket for them. Free tix are for members only.

      September 12, 2013

  • Norma

    Ann, Anna, Annette, so you are the hostess with the mostess, but still need 2 other nice, smiling peeps to assist and hold the MeetUp sign very high? Please let me know!

    I heard him interviewed on KABC radio's The Peter Tilden show. He's very bright and intellectual and funny and knowledgable of current events. Refreshing. A giant thanks for making this LAFC event possible.

    Is there a drink minimum at the club?

      LAFC events are always free. Never a cover, never a min.

    Being half Russian, I look forward to some Smirnoff humor.
    Lionel, what was the deal about using our real name? Where and how do you want us to post it? Or will it be posted on the meet up list the day of the event?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
