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 stage version also finds Dr. Katz in therapy with his own shrink, Dr. Snyder. H. Jon Benjamin revives his role as Dr. Katz’s son, Ben. Guest patients for this special anniversary celebration include Ron Funches, Pete Holmes, Morgan Murphy and Emo Philips. $35 All Ages

Due to a personal matter, Andy Kindler will no longer be appearing. Emo Philips has been added.

Jonathan Katz

I started doing standup in 1981, when there weren’t so many jokes. I quickly learned that my comedy wasn’t for everybody, it was for everybody else. The Improv in New York City was my first home. There, being funny onstage was important, but even more so was being funny at the bar with the other comics. In the early days, some of the comedians had a standing bet on how long I’d last on stage. No one guessed it would be... Read More →
