“In America, you can always find a party. In Russia, the party always finds you”

Entry in progress—B.P. Wikipedia: Yakov Smirnoff Yakov Naumovich Pokhis, better known as Yakov Smirnoff (born 24 January 1951), is a Soviet-born American comedian, actor and writer. After emigrating to the United States in 1977, Smirnoff began performing as a stand-up comic. He reached his biggest success in the mid-to-late 1980s, appearing in several films and the television sitcom vehicle What a Country!. His comic persona was of a naive immigrant from the Soviet Union who was perpetually confused and delighted by life in the United States. His humor combined a mockery of life under Communism and of consumerism in the United States, as well as word play caused by misunderstanding of American phrases and culture, all punctuated by the catchphrase, “And I thought, ‘What a country!’” Wikipedia: Russian reversal A Russian reversal is a type of joke, usually starting with the words “In Soviet Russia”, in which the subject and objects of a statement are reversed, commonly as a snowclone pattern: “In America you , in Soviet Russia X to/with you.” Sometimes the first part is omitted. (...) The joke form is often credited to Ukrainian-American comedian Yakov Smirnoff, although he only rarely used Russian reversals; an example is a Miller Lite commercial in which he appeared in 1985, wherein he stated: “In America, there’s plenty of light beer and you can always find a party. In Russia, Party always finds you”.[ Reddit—Jokes In America, you can always find a party. submitted May 27, 2017 by notactuallygnar In Soviet Russia, the party always finds you.
