About Scott "Barney" Epperson
Scott is a "dead ringer" of Barney Fife, the bumbling deputy of Mayberry. He looks, walks, talks, and acts as only Barney can, and always reminds people to "nip it in the bud." Scott is a well-established theater actor with experience in radio, television commercials, promotions, and music videos. He has also been in shows with some of the biggest names in the entertainment business.
Whether he’s mingling with the crowd, signing autographs, taking photos with fans, or dancing on stage, this lovable lawman is always mindful of his public safety duty and passes out tickets for things such as jay-walking to the crowd as needed.
Scott is a North Carolina resident who's hometown of Mount Airy, NC is also the hometown of none other than Andy Griffith himself! Scott takes great pride in his portrayal of the beloved Barney Fife character, and feels honored to be able to spread joy, laughter and smiles to so many people throughout the country. He truly is as close as it gets to the original TV character from "The Andy Griffith Show."
As an "in demand" personality at various events all over the United States and Canada, Scott has appeared in several TV commercials (both local and national), music and promotional videos, and has even performed alongside many well-known celebrities including members of the original "Andy Griffith Show" cast.
