Pigeon Forge – The Comedy Barn has announced the theatre will feature an all new original matinee show this summer season. The performance features trained pigs, parrots, housecats, dogs and a mini-donkey all performing together in a pet show at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The show runs through Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017

Anthony and Alena King and their trained “comedy critters” have performed at The Comedy Barn Theater for the last four years. They have appeared on Animal Planet’s “Pet Star,” “The Tonight Show,” and at theme parks, festivals, fairs, pet expos, conventions and corporate events across the country. They have also performed in theaters in Branson, Mo., in “The Comedy Pet Variety Show” in Lakeland, Fla., as well as in the Royal Hanneford Circus.

“Tony and Alena King are bringing back their amazing animal act to The ‘Amazing Animal’ Pet Show,” said David Fee, president and chief executive officer of The Fee/Hedrick Family Entertainment Group. “Tony and Alena are phenomenally talented animal trainers and performers, and it is incredible what their animals can do. Tony and Alena have a unique, family friendly act that combines their extraordinary pets with magic, acrobatics and audience participation. They have rescued most of these animals from shelters all over the country, and now they are Pigeon Forge stars.”

The Fee/Hedrick Family Entertainment Group produces other shows in the Smoky Mountain area including Smoky Mountain Opry, and Magic Beyond Belief.
