"Family friendly entertainment"
July 2016
We thought the show was very entertaining. Our favorite part was the man doing all the spinning and flips on the ring. Some of the "magic" was so so. Over all a good show. Very family friendly.

"Best for kids"
November 2015
Magic was pretty good, comedy and ventriloquist mediocre; younger kids seemed to enjoy it more than we did; we were on the front row -- don't buy tickets here - the stage is too high to sit here

Our large family of 11 saw it and we were amazed at the wonderful talent. From the birds to the large magic, the ventriloquist, the impressionist, the accrobats, the dancers and of course Gakita the gorilla, it was all awesome. Highly recommended!!!! Every family should see this show. Best of all kids are FREE!!!!!!

This is one show you will not want to miss in Branson! I can not chose a favorite part of this show because the whole show was my favorite. The birds were so beautiful flying around and the acts will amaze you. The whole cast is waiting on you after the show to meet you and even sign your pictures. Thank you Mr. Hamner for building your own theater and making it reasonable price for us to have a memorable night with your show that also honor the United States Veterans!

This was a pathetic attempt of magic and entertainment. We were disappointed to say the least. Guess best thing was we got tickets half price.

Unfortunately I can't recommend this show. Everything about the show was outdated. Probably would have been considered great 20 years ago. My 19 year old was bored to death. It just needs to be brought into the 21st century.

The show was not unbelievable at all and we didn't really enjoy half of the acts. The magic portion was very small and with a dark stage it was not impressive. A few times we could see one of the hidden macaw birds before it magically appeared. Even the final act with a screen hiding a military statue which appeared when the stage darkened was odd. I wish we had spent the money on a different variety show. the singing was not that great. There were several acts with a single dancer. The man riding the unicycle came out for 30 seconds and we wondered what happened to that act. There was an intermission. Show was 2 hours.

"Hamner’s Show was Disappointing"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed May 11, 2019 NEW
We attended Hamner’s Unbelievable Variety Show while vacationing in Branson. I enjoyed the pre-show, but the main show was a disappointment. The magic acts were average and rather tired in my opinion, the impressionist was just ok and the soloists pretty good. However, I have never liked it when a performer “scolds” the audience for not responding as enthusiastically as he expects, and the magician did that several times. Nor did I appreciate the rude gesture that the impressionist gave to his assistant. But the thing I most objected to was to see a fake ape twerking and to hear the magician and female vocalist discussing why she taught the ape to twerk. I did not expect that in a show billed as family friendly and led by a magician who is also a minister. It was enough to prompt me to leave at intermission.
