The Comedy Barn

The Comedy Barn Theater is nestled in the great Smokey Mountains of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Winner of the funniest show, this family friendly variety show features live music, magicians, ventriloquists, comedians and much more! Currently in it's 20th year of entertaining audiences with three show opens during the year: The Family Comedy Show, Comedy Critters Pet Show and A Christmas Show.

I recently had the opportunity to attend the Comedy Barn Christmas Show. The Show featured live Christmas music and dancing. Clog and tap dancers filled the stage with synchronicity and made me wish I had learned tap dancing as a kid. The cast members seemed happy to perform and enjoyment of the Christmas season. Their cute costumes and set also added to the fun!

The show also incorporated animals. These animals seemed highly trained and well treated. Their two handlers seemed like they genuinely care for the animals and their not just an animal but their pets. I personally have a soft spot for pigs so when two pigs came out and performed tricks I was highly impressed. I loved every minute of it! They also featured some dogs doing really cute tricks which included riding a scooter!

We've seen famous ventriloquists before but the Comedy Barn has a gem! Stephen Knowles is a highly skilled ventriloquists that can even make his puppets sing. He can do several voices, sing, blow bubbles while singing and have conversations with his puppet. He is highly entertaining and incorporates comedy into his routine. His personality comes across as genuine as he talks and interacts with the audience.

If you find yourself in Pigeon Forge, don't miss out on The Comedy Barn. They currently offer two shows nightly at 5:00 & 8:15 p.m. Tickets are reasonably priced and don't forget to ask about any discounts! They offer a full concession stand incase you get hungry or thirsty. They also offer tons of great stuffed animals and joke items. There is even some fudge incase you get a sweet tooth!
