SEE A VIDEO:

The Doyle and Debbie Show is sublime parody, simultaneously lampooning and idolizing country music’s tradition of iconic duos and their subsequent battle of the sexes. Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton wield the vocals of vintage country stars and the acting chops of Broadway veterans, taking audiences on a freewheeling joyride through a wickedly funny script and slew of equally hilarious original songs. Over the past eight years, Doyle and Debbie have developed a rabid cult following in Nashville, many of whom have seen the show over a dozen times—everyone from theater-going professionals to college students who wouldn’t be caught dead in a theater or a country bar.

“…a gloriously tacky send-up of a washed-up country duo.”
– The New York Times

“Brilliant”. “The last time I laughed anywhere close to this hard was at “The Book of Mormon.” “…hilarious. Drop-dead funny.”
– Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

“90 minutes of goofy perfection — clever, hilarious, wacky and brilliantly performed…”
– Chicago Sun-Times

“Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton are nothing short of fabulous”
– Chicago Reader

“…hilarious piece of low-brow inspiration turned into high entertainment.”
– Nashville Scene

“It is akin to George and Tammy doing a night at the Grand Ol’ Opry – only on mescaline.”
– Austin Onstage

“It’s hilarious in the manner of Spinal Tap’s tour in the mockumentary and just as spot-on in satirizing a musical genre’s styles and sensibilities (or lack thereof).”
– Austin Chronicle

“Bruce Arntson (Doyle), who wrote or co-wrote the songs, and Jenny Littleton (Debbie) inhabit their characters with near-creepy perfection.”
– Austin American-Statesman

“Littleton has a terrific voice that can evoke everyone from Patsy Cline to Dolly Parton.”
– The City Paper

“Arntson appears here with train-wreck curiosity, wondering just how deeply he’ll dare to venture into his psychological black hole.”
– Nashville Scene

“In its raising of lowbrow Southern culture to the level of something approaching art, “Doyle and Debbie” can be enjoyed on more than one level, but the songs put it way over the top. In a good way.”
– Austin American Statesman

“The Doyle & Debbie Show is like Spinal Tap with a twang, and it manages to tweak and tickle without ever denigrating country music.”
– Peter Cooper – The Tennessean

“It’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen!”
– David Auburn, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning author of “Proof”

“I laughed so hard I thought I was going to throw up. And I don’t laugh very easily…I’m very critical. But ‘Doyle and Debbie’ is so funny it’s worth getting on a plane to see.”
– Ron White, comedian
