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".

The comedy in this show was good. But I'll never return. Since seeing it I've learned Brandon left his wife - with whom he has 4 children - for the performer who is now his wife. A father of 4 young children hangs in there.

Went there last night. We laughed a lot along with a lot of hand clapping. Very talented group of performers. Very good for kids. Only complaint was the chairs. They were very low and seats were hard.
