A tribute to 5- time, Emmy Award winner, and legendary television character actor Don Knotts. The show is titled “Tied up in Knotts” starring Don’s daughter, Karen Knotts. This 90- minute show with multi-media is the story of Don’s career as told by his daughter Karen who also narrates as Don’s favorite aunt Emma and even Aunt Bea. Karen shares fond memories of her special father-daughter bond plus stories about visiting the set of Mayberry and the cast members who were not like their TV characters. Great “inside” stories for all of us Mayberry fans!
This tribute is a must-see for all of “us kids” from the ’50s, ’60s & 70’s who first started laughing at Don Knotts when he debuted as the “nervous” guy on Steve Allen’s Tonight Show. Or maybe it was Don as Cpl. John C. Brown in the movie “No Time for Sergeants” starring Andy Griffith. It was the chemistry between Don and Andy that lead to Don’s 5 Emmy Awards for “Best Supporting Actor” as “Barney Fife” on The Andy Griffith Show. Don appeared in over 22 family films plus for 10 years he played the landlord Ralph Furley on “Three’s Company.”
