JudgesThe Hamner Variety Theater is proud to host the 6th Annual Branson Wrong Show with Master of Ceremonies Clay Cooper and four celebrity judges…

  • Debi Diamond (as Ruth Buzzi)
  • Dalena Ditto (as Wonder Woman)
  • Terry Wayne Sanders (as Joan Rivers)
  • Mystery Judge ??? 

Our celebrity guests have the important task of judging the great and not-so-great talent that will be competing in this year’s show.

This event has been a smashing success each year due to the volunteer efforts of several fearless performers, three wacky judges, the talented Wrong Show Band, two beautiful “hoopa” girls, one sparkling scorekeeper, a wonderful warm-up man, a crazy comedian host, and an energized audience who came for a great evening of fun and laughter!

This year’s show is once again under the direction of respected musician and show producer Bogie Bohinc, who helped developed the annual event since it’s inception with Harry & Carolyn Watterson.

Bogie is an accomplished guitarist who grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. He was a major studio recording artist for many years in Los Angeles, and has worked with hundreds of the top names in the music industry in Las Vegas, Reno, Tahoe, and Atlantic City.  In Branson he has served as guitarist and musical conductor for many headline artists including Andy Williams, Tony Orlando, Ann Margret, and the “Ragin Cajun” Doug Kershaw. He is married to City of Branson Alderwoman, Chris Bohinc.

Christine Thompson, with the Southwest Missouri Office on Aging worked with Bogie to get the fundraiser rolling from the beginning.  She feels the past year’s shows have been a huge hit not only for the audience but also for the “Homebound Meals” program that they sponsor.

“We had such a great crowd, it was just awesome. It was sort of like a wedding in that we did all this planning and practicing, and it was over in a flash. Those funds will help so many programs for seniors, not only in this area, but all over Southwest Missouri.”

Branson Show Host: Jim Barber

Branson ventriloquist and celebrity host Jim Barber has been the Master of Ceremonies since the initial event, however, due to out of town performance obligations, he will not be able to participate for the 2015 event. We are excited that Clay Cooper will act as Master of Ceremonies to keep things flowing and sooth the emotions of the unfortunate performers who may hear the sound of the gong, generously donated for use at the event by Reliable Toyota of Springfield, Missouri.

“Speaking of Jim Barber, the guy did a smooth job of keeping all the zanies at bay and keeping the show moving at a good pace. We had thought the show would run long, however, after beginning at 6:49pm, the show concluded about 9:15pm.”

“Those judges by the way… had an unenviable task of judging and gonging some of the acts. Don’t ever ask this writer to be a judge. I just couldn’t do it. Incidentally, the “gong” used for the show was donated by Reliable Toyota. Barber was quick to point out that when the gong was hit, it just kept on going.”

Each year, the winners clearly stand out from a few of the strange and wonderful gong-worthy acts. At times, the crowd jeers the judges to take a swing at even some of the better acts, yet when the smoke clears there will be three winners. Be there to share in the fun and excitement yourself!
