Mutts Gone Nuts
Show biz lore says you should never compete with kids or animals, but Scott and Jane Houghton of Mutts Gone Nuts didn’t take it to heart. The comedy duo returns to The Lyric with all their adorable rescue dogs for a high-energy, high-wire show for the entire family. Kids, parents and grandparents will love the adorable pooches and the humans who they allow on stage with them.
Known as the “disorderly duo,” the Houghtons have been performing together as a comedy team since 1985. They were known for blending physical comedy and circus artistry and they traveled the world from Tokyo to Las Vegas. The two performed at Lee Greenwood’s theater in Tennessee and as the featured comedy act at Dolly Parton’s theaters in Orlando, Myrtle Beach and Branson. In 2005, the two discovered that adding dogs to the act unleashed even more comic potential and Mutts Gone Nuts was born. It features nine canine acrobats, dogs like Chico, the hoop-jumping Chihuahua/Corgi mix, Fritz, the jump-roping American Eskimo, high-flying Frisbee dogs, tight wire dogs, dancing dogs, magic dogs and Sammie the Talking Dog. You’ll have a great time enjoying the antics of some of the cutest and most talented dogs in show business and their people, too. They’ll steal your heart and make you laugh.
