Since Branson still believes in laughter as the best medicine, comedy is everywhere; entire shows are devoted to making you laugh, like Comedy Jamboree, and just about every show in town features humor, including those with popular comedians like Herkimer from Presleys’, Jim Dandy from Grand Jubilee, and Droopy Drawers, Jr. from the Baldknobbers.
There are music-laden shows that tell a story – Million Dollar Quartet; and storytelling shows that are big-time, full-scale productions, like Moses and Legend of Kungfu – The Return of the Dragon.
