Branson is home to many types of entertainment, including comedy. Get ready for some light-hearted jokes and loads of fun at these Branson comedy shows: 

Comedy Jamboree 

The name says it all with this show at Grand Country Music Hall. You’ll laugh at comedians such as Applejack, Stretch McCord and Andy Parks, sing along with the Jamboree Singers and clap your hands when pianist Tracy Heaston tickles the ivories (and maybe your funny bone too!).

Branson’s Famous Baldknobbers 

Traditional Ozarks humor has long been a hallmark of the Baldknobbers' show, which began in Branson in 1959. Classic tunes of yesterday and the hits of today are in the repertoire. Plus, you’ll get a generous dose of comedy from characters known as Droopy Drawers and Hargas Marcel.

Yakov

Prepare to "Make America laugh again" with famous Russian comedian Yakov Smirnoff and his unique style of patriotic comedy. You'll double over with giggles after hearing his journey "from red to redneck!"

The Jim Stafford Show 

It’s easy to imagine the fun you’ll have at this show, which features the talented performer who charted such hits as “Spiders and Snakes” and penned the song, “Cow Patti.” Jim is an incredible guitarist, and you'll be kept on your toes with his quick wit.

Presleys' Country Jubilee 

One of the longest-running shows in Branson has been making visitors laugh for decades. You’ll be wowed by the Presley family’s talented musicians and vocalists while “Herkimer” and his antics keep you doubled-over with laughter.
