Barney was an emotional and complex character in the small town of Mayberry on the Andy Griffith Show. This character, made famous by the talented Don Knotts, can never be forgotten.

Watching Michael J portray him in  Barney Fife Fully Loaded at the Caravelle Theater is fun and takes you back to fond memories.

Michael J. Arnott is multi-talented and his interaction as Barney with Otis (Joey I.L.O) is perfect. They interact with the audience at every avenue. They both excell at Barney and Otis… but wait, there is more!

The second half of the show highlights each of their own talents. Michael is quite the singer and Joey is a witty comedian. I enjoyed both their impressions and antics like Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and a couple others.

This is a great 2 man show. It does not have the lights and flash of other shows, but was a great tribute to fantastic characters and a time gone by. A warm and humorous show so get on out and see…
