"Must see!"
October 2019
Wasn't sure what to expect, but had heard it was a must see. It didn't disappoint. Arrived 45 minutes early to enjoy the pre-show. Everyone who performed is loaded with talent. Great mix of humor, country music, Southern rock, gospel music and a salute to America's veterans. Highly recommend!

"AMAZING!!!"
July 2018
I went to Branson with my God Momma who asked me to get the tickets. I had little knowledge of their show, but man, they can perform! They put on a show like none other and I have talked with other performers who partner and give a discount off their show with a receipt...I can hardly wait to come back next year!!!

"Missed it 3 times!"
June 2018
Drove past the theater 3 times & never saw the sign. Went to Sonic to get drinks & she told us where they were. I had been to Baldknobbers in the Baldknobber theater & the show was much better there. Still good clean jokes, humor & songs. Loved it!

The baldknobbers has been a lighthearted family fun show hosted by the Mabe family for over 60 years. Recently, the family has split. This isn’t because of lack of fans, but because of 2 people in this family. Brandon Mabe and Megan Mccombs Mabe. The family was separated because of this husband and wife duo terminating Brandon’s mother (Patty) and father (Tim). Tim played Droopy Drawers Jr and Patty sang BEAUTIFUL gospel. They made the show. If you watch the one season reality show they made called Brandon famous, you can see the conflict rising and I believe this decision was made more by Megan than Brandon. Clearly Brandon is blind to her hateful nature. I work at a prison, and i know liars and fake people. After meeting all of them, you can see how fake the two of them are. This was a show built on family tradition and Christian values, and now that tradition and those values have been shattered. I don’t know about all of you, but I’d rather see the Haygoods. It’s a better, more talented family show, and you don’t see any of them firing each other. Save your money and go elsewhere.

We attended the 8 pm show one evening in December. The second half was Christmas themed, which we enjoyed. We liked the mix of comedy and music as well as the family feel of the show. We did not know about the opening comedian. I'm not sure what time he starts, but we were not late to the show and he was already onstage. Snacks at the concession stand are reasonably priced. We would recommend this show.

The Baldknobbers are celebrating their 60th anniversary. My wife and I have seen the show several times in the past four decades, and she saw the group a number of times with her family since the mid-1960s. The show is always entertaining, but it has changed a lot over the years; I prefer Hank Williams and Johnny Cash over Lady Antebellum and Sugarland. If you like a mix of country music and cornpone comedy, then this should be your cup of moonshine.
