Dr. Katz Live is a stage variation of the animated show, Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist, created by Jonathan Katz and Tom Snyder for Comedy Central. It premiered twenty years ago in May of 1995, earning the network its first Emmy and Peabody awards and introducing the term “squigglevision” to the English language. The show has rightfully gone on to become a cult classic.
The live version (much like the cartoon version) of Dr. Katz, brings well-known standups to the good doctor’s couch, using the quirks and idiosyncrasies of their comedy acts to analyze their various conflicted issues. The 20th anniversary celebration has made 2015 stops at San Francisco Sketchfest, Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival and Austin’s Moontower Comedy Fest. The Bentzen Ball is the tour's first (& thus far only) East Coast stop!
