Alex will take your group to the major landmarks in downtown Gatlinburg and to some of the area’s very best shops and restaurants. Along the way, Stokes will tell some hilarious stories and joke around with his guests. There won’t be any slapstick comedy (at least not intentionally), but Alex’s banter is sure to keep you entertained.
All of the humor in the Family Friendly Gatlinburg Comedy Tour is kid-friendly and PG-rated. The tour is open to guests of all ages, and young children are welcome.
Participants in the tour will enjoy free food and drink samples at many of the locations along the route. Everyone who signs up for the tour will also receive a complimentary discount card that can be used at lots of the stops.
21 and Up Gatlinburg Comedy Tour
Alex runs 21 and Up Tours with more mature jokes, which are great for bachelor or bachelorette parties. These tours typically last around 2 hours and are similar to pub crawls but focus on the city’s local flavors. If you’re looking to have fun without any kids in tow, this tour is for you! Just like the Family Friendly Tour, each person will get discounts that can be used at any time, some even up to 30% off.

About Alex Stokes
Alex Stokes jumped headfirst into the world of comedy after performing at his first open mic night in Knoxville, TN about 8 years ago. Leaving behind a 14-year career as an investment broker and banker, Stokes began touring the country as a stand-up comedian, making stops at the famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles and clubs in New York. Rather than moving to the big city like many other stand-ups, Alex decided to stay true to his roots and hone his comedy in Gatlinburg TN.
Stokes has authored five books: Messing With Tourists: Stupid Answers to Stupid Questions, Messing With Tourists 2: Here We Go Again!, Messing With Tourists 3: Candy Bears and Awkward Stares, 5 Years Of This? Husband. Father. Comedian. My Story, and The City Bear In The Smokies (a children’s book). Messing With Tourists 3 is coming out late June of 2019 and continues sharing some of the crazy conversations that Alex has with tourists.
In addition to owning and operating Gatlinburg Comedy Tours, Stokes also teaches stand up comedy at the University of Tennessee.
