Event Description
Have you ever met a talking dog, a real talking dog? Get ready when comedian and ventriloquist Todd Oliver takes the stage -- he will introduce you to three of them: Irving, Lucy and Elvis. These little dogs are making crowds across the country howl for more!

Throughout 2011, Todd’s hilarious show, Todd Oliver & Friends, will appear at the Jim Stafford Theatre in Branson, Missouri. Shows begin March 1 and run through December 30. Says Todd, “Along with my canine friends – Irving, Lucy, and Elvis – I’ll be joined by a ‘real’ cast of characters like Pops, Miss Lilly, Joey and my outstanding Smiling Eyes
Band. We’ve got a lot of audience participation segments, original music and outrageous comedy.” Irving the talking dog adds, “We’re gonna turn everyday K-9 experiences into a howling good time!”

And what are audiences saying? “I’ve never laughed so hard in my life, amazing!,” “Incredibly funny!,” “A great act!," “Wonderful, the highlight of our trip to Branson!”  These are just some of the comments heard regularly after the show.

Recent television appearances include Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Today Show.

Todd Oliver was awarded “Best Variety Performance” and “Best Dinner Show” at the Branson All American Entertainment Awards.

Audience participation and personalizing the show for special events is a part of Todd’s proven successful formula, making his show a consistent draw in top entertainment venues across America. His warm friendly personality creates a “magical family chemistry.”

Along with Irving, Lucy and Elvis, you’ll also meet the rest of his cast of characters such as Pops, a crazy confused old timer; Miss Lilly, his lifelong love; and Joey, the loveable bad boy.

Todd Oliver’s humor is situational and contemporary, resulting in a clean universal comedy that makes you feel good and leaves you wondering, “How do those funny dogs talk?”
