Egyptian Theatre and Tails Excited to Welcome Todd Oliver


The Egyptian Theatre and Tails Humane Society are excited to welcome America’s Got Talent semi-finalist Todd Oliver to the Egyptian Theatre in Downtown DeKalb on Saturday, November 12, 2016.

Have you ever met a talking dog, a real talking Dog? Get ready folks because you’re going to meet the funniest character 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 dog’s mouth. He won’t mince words, and if he does it’s Todd’s fault anyways; he’s a 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.

Todd Oliver and Friends have been a featured 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 semi-finalist on America’s Got Talent.

A major draw for entertainment venues, 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, either way you’re going to have a doggone, rockin, good time with Todd Oliver And Irving!
