Legendary southern comedian Fred E. Smith passed away on June 4, 2006. Fred was born in Marshall, North Carolina, in 1924 to Ballard and Pearl Smith. He lived a full and exciting life as a comedian and musician, working with such greats as Woody Guthrie, Burl Ives, Archie Campbell, Red Rector, Boots Randolph, Grandpa Jones, Kenny Baker, Jimmy Martin, and many other top entertainers. He had impeccable timing when it came to his comedy, and he was one of the best. He worked the last few years of his career in Pigeon Forge at the Comedy Barn and released a comedy CD in 2005 titled Tales From A‘way Down Yonder. He was in rather good health until the last month of his life. Even within days of his death he was still telling jokes to his friends and family in the Fred E. Smith style.
