4 Interesting Things to Know About Our Pigeon Forge Theater

If you’ve been to Pigeon Forge before, you’re sure to have spotted our red and yellow building as you’ve driven along the Parkway. But how much do you know about The Comedy Barn Theater and what’s inside? We’re here to help you learn all about it! We’ve made a list of the top 4 interesting things to know about our Pigeon Forge theater:

1. The Original Theater Was the Shape of a Barn.

Have you ever wondered where The Comedy Barn got its name? When we had our first show in 1995, we performed in the building of the recently closed Hee Haw Theater, which was in the shape of a barn. The original theater was actually where the back parking lot is today! It wasn’t until 1996 that we performed our first show in our “new” theater. We still kept the feel and look of a barn to go along with our name, and our red and yellow building is easy to spot! In fact, in the summer of 2022, we added a bright and shiny new coat of paint, so you’re sure to see us as you’re driving down the Parkway.

2. We’re the Most Successful Clean Comedy Theater.
