America’s Got talent and the Mary C present The Comedy Event of the Year, starring “Todd Oliver and Friends.”

Have you ever met a talking dog, a real talking dog? Get ready, because on July 18th at 7pm at the Mary C, you’re going to meet the funniest comedian on 4 legs.  “Irving” with a little help from his friend Todd Oliver, is going to talk up a storm. 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 dogs mouth. He won’t mince words, and if he does it’s Todd’s fault anyways. (He’s the ventriloquist)

Todd Oliver grew up loving dogs & ventriloquism. As a young boy he studied piano, guitar, voice, and ventriloquism. Along the way he created some wooden headed characters and performed around the world. You’ll also meet a bunny named Alice and 3 birds.

Todd Oliver and Friends have been a feature on Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Today Show, a couple episodes of Walker Texas Ranger and in 2012 they were a top 4 finalist on America’s  Got Talent. A major draw for many years in Branson, Missouri. Todd is now touring, bringing his brand of family fun to towns across America.

So sit back and get ready, you might even be on stage yourself, Todd turns audience members into real live Ventriloquist dummies! Either way you’re going to have a doggone, rocking good time with “Todd Oliver and Friends”
