"Even Better"
February 2020
Tonight was our 4th time seeing this tribute show, and it was every bit as good, or “even better” than the First time! Brian brings current issues into the fold in “Red’s” style. Can’t wait to get to come back and see him again!

Brian Hoffman is a gentleman just like Red Skelton. He brings back MANY memories and is able to BE Red Skelton. A young boy even enjoyed the “old style” humor!

"So memorable"
October 2019
I remember my dad getting so tickled over RED getting tickled over his own jokes. And then Brian does it beautifully. He would start a joke then get tickled and say, ‘I know what the next one is!’ Such a great remembrance of Red Skelton. I am a local and I will go back.

"Brian or Red?"
October 2019
when we met Brian before the show, the similarities were scary. Brian looks. sounds, acts like Red. HE is a real down to earth type of guy. If you ever seen Red, you will love Brian's tribute.

Loved the presentation. As an adult, it was great to heard some of Red Skeltons history. Reds pledge allegations is as relative today as it was in the 60s. Can’t wait to bring my grandson here to heard the pledge and great clean jokes. Blessings. Thank you for keeping goodness alive in the Smokey’s. Hope to see you in Indiana next year. Bring friends.

Brian Hoffman does an outstanding job of paying tribute to one of America’s greatest. He not only portrays Red Skelton in an excellent way, he also shares some history that many are unaware of. If you have loved Red Skeleton as I have this becomes a must see when you are in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. It is a small intimate theater setting that helps you feel more involved in what is happening. Definitely a show we will see again when we return to Pigeon Forge

"Best Honor to the Great RED SKELTON "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 02, 2020
This has to be one of the best entertaining shows in Pigeon Forge. Brian does an outstanding rendition of RED SKELTON. You will laugh and laugh. Brian is great interacting with the audience. Brian knows Ted SKELTON inside and out. All of Brian’s Skits are exact to the tee. Visit the theater and enjoy the two walls of memorabilia. Some of the memorabilia is on loan from the RED SKELTON Theater in Indiana. Most of it is owned by Brian himself. Come and enjoy the wall of funnies and best of all enjoy Brian as he does his awesome show of Remembering RED. Awesome , Awesome Awesome
