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".

“Very Good - Not Great”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

While this is the oldest show in Branson and came highly recommended I guess I expected a little more. As a Veteran I was honored and given a great discount. I just wanted to laugh (which I did) but would have liked more laughter - less music. All in all a very good show. I would recommend it if someone was going to be there in Branson for several days. Beautiful Theatre!

“Grandpa & Grandma at Baldknobbers”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We enjoyed the pre-show history lesson. The music was good and the comedy was clean. You would not be afraid to bring grandma or grandboy here.

“Good clean family fun show”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Performers were great, loved the tribute to the different armed services and having the veterans and active duty members stand to be recognized along with their service song. The jokes were family-friendly!
