Jim Stafford adds two additional shows full of comedy with heart… and strings!

Jim Stafford, critically-acclaimed by the Chicago Tribune as the “Victor Borge of the guitar”, is adding two more dates to the 2005 schedule of his Branson show, Monday, May 2nd, and Tuesday, May 3rd at 7:30 PM.

Jim Stafford says, “Originally I thought I’d take these days off to play and then I thought, wait a minute — the people I want to play with are in my audiences! So, we added the shows and also decided to make them area appreciation days for the residents of Stone and Taney County. They need a little play time too!”

Jim Stafford will debut his new 2005 show, “Comedy with Heart!” on these dates, blending classic Stafford numbers with new guitar, dance, and comedy. Also, Jim’s children– Shea and G.G.–will debut new numbers as they continue to amaze audiences with their musical abilities. “The Jim Stafford Show is unique to Branson as each number is produced to explore human emotion, from love of family to hilarious laughter. The same feeling goes into his guitar; he makes the guitar sing to thrill your heart, then he puts in a move that is hilarious. The audience never knows what is coming,” comments Lianne Milton of Branson Tourism Center.

As Richard Freihofer of the Branson Church Getaway Magazine says, “Jim Stafford is not just a comedian…he is an artist who uses the spoken word to paint hilarious pictures of people being themselves. He finds the words to remind us about what is important in life, and he’s a master at portraying the human spirit!”

Earlier this year, Jim’s theatre underwent an extreme makeover to the seating, lobby, lighting, and sound to provide first-class accommodations for Jim’s audiences. Reservations can be made to fly first-class at the Jim Stafford Theatre in luxurious VIP seating with extra high backs and legroom. General seating has been upgraded as well for more comfort and space. The Stafford Theatre provides the ultimate in luxury seating to Branson audiences.

The Jim Stafford Theatre presents three shows a day during 2005. The Jim Stafford Show runs Monday through Saturday at 7:30 PM. In the afternoons, “50’s At The Hop” performs at 2:00 P.M. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with an additional show on Sundays at 8:00 P.M. Doug Gabriel performs his award-winning morning show at 10 AM Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday in May along with hosting the second year of “Branson Spotlight”, Branson’s premier talent search, on Fridays at 11:00 PM. Tim Hill’s ministry presents “The Suns of Thunder” Morning Worship Service each Sunday morning at 10 AM, free to the public.

Jim Stafford says “It’s gonna be a wild ride in 2005!”

Jim Stafford, comedian and Branson theatre owner, announces the exciting addition of all new first-class seats, premium surround sound, state-of-the-art lighting, and a remodeled, spacious lobby finished just in time to kick off the 2005 season at the Jim Stafford Theatre in Branson, Missouri.

Widely acclaimed as the “Victor Borge of the guitar”, Jim will be making exciting changes in his show for 2005 by adding more of his famous guitar picking and more audience participation comedy.

“I have found that my audiences are some of the funniest people in the world,” says Jim. “Getting out in the middle of them produces spontaneous, original laughs. Nobody can write a joke as funny as people can just naturally be.”

The red carpet treatment is what it’s all about at the Jim Stafford Theatre in 2005, with the addition of VIP first-class seating in the front of the theatre. Each first-class seat has a 41″ hi-back seat with a cushioned pillow top headrest, armrest with cup holder, and an ergonomic, curved design for added comfort. All new marquee seats fill the rest of the theatre with each chair having a 38″ hi-back seat, cup holder, and an ergonomic, curved design. Space between each row of seats has also been increased to add more leg room. Jim says, “Ladies and Gentlemen, buckle up ’cause it’s gonna be a wild ride — with first-class seating and out of this world music and comedy!”

Not only will Jim Stafford’s audiences be seated in the most luxurious seats in Branson, but they will be able to experience the Jim Stafford Show like never before. In 2005, all new premium surround sound and state-of-the-art lighting makes Jim’s hilarious comedy, laser light show, incredible guitar licks, and 3-D Virtual Thrill Ride an unforgettable experience. Ann Stafford, Jim’s wife and co-owner of the theatre says, “What happens at the Jim Stafford Show doesn’t stay here. It’s excitement people can take with them forever!”
