“Honey and her family experienced feudin’, feastin’ and family fun,” at our Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show,” said Fee. “She was able to watch a lively talent and stunt competition between clans where the battlefield is our stage. We gave Honey and her family loads of laughs, a chance to hear our extraordinary hillbilly musicians as they performed country, bluegrass, gospel, and instrumental music and she had the opportunity to see our award winning cloggers. We fed her and her family a full home-style feast the way Granny used to make it including : Feudin’ Fried Chicken, Open Pit Pulled-to-Pieces Pork Barbecue, Southern Style Creamy Soup, Smashed Mashed Taters, Bus Y’ur Jeans Pinto Beans, Keep It Comin’ Cornbread, No Tellin’ What’s In It Coleslaw and Granny’s Famous Specialty Dessert.”
“We know Honey likes to laugh and she was able to laugh with us at the Comedy Barn,” said Fee. “Her show is all about life’s experiences and we hope she had a fun experience at the Comedy Barn. Honey and various members of her family got pulled up on stage in several of our audience participation acts and they all seemed to be having a great time. Honey participated in our canine act, in Farmer Clem’s magic act, and she was able to dance onstage with all of the children in the audience. We hope that she and her family will come back soon.” Now in its sixteenth season, the multi-million dollar Comedy Barn Theater? continues to make audiences roar with its nationally known, family-friendly comedians, ventriloquists, magicians, jugglers, musicians and fun barnyard animals.
