The Show Goes to the (Therapy) Dogs!

  • The Bryant Lake Bowl 810 West Lake Street Minneapolis, MN, 55408 United States (map)

Sarah Palm, Researcher, Nature Based Therapeutics at the University of Minnesota

Colleen Crockford, Human-Animal Bond Social Worker with Crockford Consulting

Dr. Tim Lewis, Professor at the University of St. Thomas

Anyone who has ever loved a pet doesn’t need an improv comedy show to tell them that animals can make us better versions of ourselves. Yet a growing body of research is expanding our understanding of the science behind the human-animal connection. We will talk with three experts about how animals are used in therapy today and about the cutting edge of research in this field. Will there also be dogs at the show? Come and find out!

Cast: Heather Meyer, Kelly Kohlbacher, Jim Robinson, Fred Cheng, Duck Washington, Tane Danger, Dennis Curley

TICKETS: $12 IN ADVANCE, OR AT THE DOOR WITH A FRINGE BUTTON · $15 AT THE DOOR WITH NO DISCOUNT.

What is the show?

Described “As if C-SPAN were suddenly swarmed by the cast of SNL,” The Theater of Public Policy has garnered national media attention and fans for its unique blend of serious issues and improv comedy.

  • Shows open with a lively conversation with a newsmaker or policy wonk.

  • That conversation inspires a team of Minnesota’s most sharpest improvisers, who create entirely spontaneous sketches based on the interview.

  • The expert guest(s) then answers questions from the audience.

  • The show wraps with one last round of improv from the cast.
