Comedian Jolie Dudley’s variety show, Must Love Dogs (and Comedy) is growing!
Starting next year, the show is going from once a month to twice monthly. Must Love Dogs (and Comedy) takes place at Boris & Horton, New York City’s first dog-friendly cafe. As Jolie says, you and your pooch can “come, sit, and stay” for an evening of stand-up, characters, music, improvisation, and storytelling.
The last show of this year takes place on Wednesday, December 8. Doors open at 6:30 and the performances start at 7:00. Visit Eventbrite for tickets.

Megan Quick as “Toto”Jolie and Knope
Jolie is a Brooklyn-based comedian who came up with the idea for Must Love Dogs (and Comedy) during the Covid quarantine.
Like many of us, she spent much of the lock-down spending lots and lots… and lots… of quality time with her dog. Jolie is the loving owner of a five-year-old Australian Cattle dog mix named Knope that she adopted when she lived in Louisiana. (And yes, she’s named for Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation.)
When the quarantine started to ease, Jolie asked herself what did she want to do?
She had two answers: to produce a comedy show and to spend more time with Knope.
So why not combine the two? And that’s how Must Love Dogs (and Comedy) was born!
Jolie and Knope
Most shows feature seven performers, mostly comedy, but musical and other acts as well.
Jolie (and Knope) host each event.
She says Knope follows her around during the show instead of playing with the other dogs in the audience: “I think she’s hoping I will give her stage time, but she doesn’t have a tight five!”
