An old popular comedy show will be coming to the Corinth Coliseum on Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28. A community group from McNairy County will present their second annual "Hee Haw" at 6:30 p.m. and all proceeds raised will go to the Alcorn County Relay for Life.

"This is an old-time country comedy that is clean and family-oriented. People can bring their kids and have a good time. All ages are welcome," said Tina Bugg, the chairperson for Alcorn County Relay for Life.

According to Bugg last year's event was a huge success and she hopes the results will be just as good this year.

"I hope it's an even larger turnout than before. We have a lot of great volunteers helping up this year. Some will assist with the snack bar and others with the program," she said.

Volante Jones Hill of Corinth will present a flag show during the program. Bugg recalls watching "Hee Haw" on television as a child.

"It's definitely nostalgic. This brings up childhood memories for people my age and older," said the Corinth native.

Tickets to attend the show are $7 for adults; $3 for kids ages 7-12 and free for children six years old and under, she said.
