REVIEW: Comedy Jamboree - 2005 show review

I've seen this show several times and I always find it very entertaining and today was no exception. Like many shows that I have seen this year this show has undergone some changes to keep it fresh for visitors like me that come back time and time again to see it. New songs, new costumes, and new jokes keeps this variety show interesting. A misconception about this show is that it is all comedy but that simply isn't true. There is a wide variety of music from classic country, new contemporary country, bluegrass, pop, southern rock, gospel, and patriotic. One noteable change to the show is the addition of a "straight man" to the cast that plays along with Jim Dandy's folly. I forgot his name but he did a really great job and seemed to really enjoy what he was doing. He himself couldn't keep from laughing at Jim Dandy's antics! The 4 singers and dancers in this show are top notch and very talented as is Splinter Middleton, and the live band that backs them up. I really enjoy how each of the singers/dancers gets a change to showcase their own individual talents throughout the show. If you have been to Silver Dollar City and have seen their evening show you will notice several of the cast members in this show playing in that show as well. I believe that I've read where the guy that does this show is the one responsible for SDC's night show.

Standout moments of the 2005 show include meeting Jim Dandy's "aunt" and "grandpa" LOL!, Splinter's rap number ( I didn't know Splinter could rap! LOL!), "As the Stomach Turns" is a new comedic addition to the show. I will not spoil it for you but I don't think I have ever seen it done before at any other show, the song arrangement in the second half is really well done. Speaking of songs, some of the songs in this year's show I have not heard before but that caused me to listen more to the person singing them. They kept a few parts of last season's show like the "Hee Haw" segment which is fun! The show also relies quite a bit on audience participation. I found myself sinking into my seat everytime the performers came out into the audience. This show will give you a spring in your step and a song on your lips. Go and check this one out!
