Have you ever met a talking dog, a real talking Dog? Get ready folks because tonight you’re going to meet the funniest character on 4 legs !
Meet Irving, a “real live talking Boston Terrier!” This little dog is making crowds across the country howl for more! When Irving gets behind the microphone, he turns everyday K-9 experiences into knockout comedy. Irving, with a little help from his partner comedian (and ventriloquist), Todd Oliver, is taking dialogue into a whole new dimension.
If you ever wondered how a dog looks at life, this little home raised companion is going to give it to you straight from the dog’s mouth. He won’t mince words, and if he does it’s Todd’s fault anyways. (He’s a ventriloquist)
Audience participation and personalizing the show for special events is a part of Todd’s proven successful formula. A formula that works for audiences of all ages, and backgrounds’. A formula that has made them a strong consistent draw in top entertainment venues across America.
Todd Oliver and Friends have been a feature on The Late Show With David Letterman, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Penn & Teller’s Sin City Sensational, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, The Today Show, a couple episodes of Walker Texas Ranger, and in 2012 they were a semi-finalist on NBC’s America’s Got Talent.
So sit back and get ready, you might even be on stage yourself, either way you’re going to have a doggone, rockin, good time with Todd Oliver And Irving!
