Yuri the waiter claims he is from Ukraine and is a laugh a minute visual comedy character act for your next corporate function. He engages as a real waiter (or head waiter) but soon it is apparent he is a little strange. Mishaps start happening while serving, e.g. he loses his shoe and starts crawling around looking for it. He continually is replacing cutlery and offering straws to drink the wine. He might at one point be delivering a realistic wooden 6ft pole (plastic) which of courses makes the audience duck each time he turns around.

The act has developed over the years from Mime, comedy businessman and mad professor characters.
