There are a variety of theaters and shows to see in Pigeon Forge. Perhaps one of the most entertaining for the whole family is at the Comedy Barn. The award winning variety show is rarely the same and offers laughs and music that will entertain everyone in the family.
The Comedy Barn is located in Pigeon Forge on the Parkway between light #3 and light #4. Housed in the multi-million dollar barn shaped theater, it is hard to miss when driving down the Parkway. The cast not only performs, but also sell concessions and souvenirs, greets audience members, and signs autographs. It s an every-man’s theater that strives to provide the best experience for the over 3 million tourists who visit annually.
Once the show starts, be prepared to laugh and be entertained. The show features fire-eaters, jugglers, musicians, ventriloquists, and even farm yard animals. In between, there is plenty of country, bluegrass, and gospel music, along with computerized lights and special effects. The show prides itself with providing clean family-oriented comedy and entertainment that kids and adults alike can enjoy. In the three times that I have visited the show, none of the shows have been the same and each time was equally funny and enjoyable.
The cast loves to use audience members as part of the show so be warned that you may end up on stage being “hypnotized” or as part of one of the other many funny skits. Kids are even given a chance to be a part of the show and interact with some of the funny barnyard animals.
The lobby offers souvenirs of toys featuring animals from the show as well as t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, candy, and novelty toys. Each show is taped nightl, so after you watch it you can buy a copy to view and enjoy later.
The show is open all year around and has an 8:15 pm show almost every night, with additional shows at 2:00 pm. and 5:00 pm offered during peak seasons. A special Christmas shows is offered daily in late November and December. Special group rates are available. The ticket box office is open 7 days a week from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased online at the box office or online. Coupons can be found online and at various locations in Pigeon Forge.
Next time you visit Pigeon Forge, stop in enjoy the show that has been voted the Funniest Show for 10 years in a row. You won’t be sorry!
