These Pigeon Forge shows are sure to leave you laughing, but if you’ll be spending some time in Gatlinburg as well, you’ll have even more options. At Guy Michaels Comedy Hypnosis, audience participation is #1. You can get in on the fun or watch as the board-certified hypnotist and hypnotherapist Guy Michaels has you laughing until you cry. Or get tickets for a show at Sweet Fanny Adams Theatre & Music Hall, a Broadway-style theatre that blends hilarious comedy with audience participation for a night you won’t forget. The 2017 season brings Ramblings of a Plaid Mind, Cowboy! The Life & Times of Billy Kincaid, and Mistletoe & Malarkey! At Impossibilities Magic Show, enjoy magic and mind reading – and a healthy dose of comedy – with the whole family.

Just as “laughter is the best medicine,” so it goes that “music is good for the soul.” The Great Smoky Mountains doesn’t disappoint in that category either, with live music all throughout the year. You can tap your toes to the music in the Ole Smoky Moonshine Holler in downtown Gatlinburg, have drink while you enjoy live music at Smoky Mountain Brewery, dance at Three Jimmy’s, sit back and enjoy the show at the Smoky Mountain Opry, or stroll the Parkway during the holidays or in summer to hear stories and songs from costumed performers during Smoky Mountain Tunes & Tales!

Even Dollywood offers live music in the form of Broadway-style shows, along with its incredible production of the Festival of Nations, which takes you on a virtual tour around the world. It features talented singers, dancers, and artists from around the world, showcasing the cultures of Africa, Poland, the Andes Mountains, the Swiss Alps, the Caribbean, Ireland, and much more! If you love live music (and good food), it’s an event you don’t want to miss!
