Owner description: Branson's Famous Baldknobbers, featuring the Mabe family, is a country music and comedy variety show in Branson, Missouri performing at the new Branson Famous Theatre. The Mabe family began the Branson family entertainment phenomenon 58 years ago in 1959. Today, the family continues to wow audiences as the second and third generations add their own flare to the family legacy. Their perfect blend of country music, gospel music and comedy will keep you at the edge of your seat and roaring with laughter all night long. The family has been recognized on a national platform as well. In 2011, the Mabe brothers original costumes, instruments and artifacts were added to the permanent collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. The family has also appeared in multiple television programs, most recently starring in their own reality television series, "Branson Famous". When visiting Branson, don't miss Branson's Famous Baldknobbers at the new Branson Famous Theatre!

This is a show for all ages. Don't be alarmed by all the senior citizens. It is a great family show.

This is the oldest show in Branson and still one of the very best. It is a must see on our annual trips. The mjsic is top notch and the coemdy absolutely hilarious and family friendly. A trip to Branson is not complete until you see this show

Were told by friends that we HAD to see the Baldknobbers show...they had been there few years ago...Sad to say I was not impressed...I thought the musicians were very good, and the comedy was good, but I can't say I enjoyed the singing, felt they were below par...and felt their performances felt 'forced'...the 'twangyness' (for lack of a better word) was forced, I am a long-time country music fan, but felt they did not do the songs justice...the two veteran singers were better, it was the three younger singers that I did not care for...they just seemed to be trying too hard.

We go to the Baldknobbers every year and again it's one of the best shows! The comedians Hargus and Droopy Drawers are always really funny. My 14 yr old niece likes Droopy. Miss Stub Meadows since he retired. Love the bluegrass music and the various country music they do.

The first performer who came out and warmed up the audience was the best part of the whole show. He was so funny I had tears in my eyes. After that it was a rapid decline. I just did not find it to be a great performance compared to other shows I have seen.
