About

The Doyle & Debbie Show

"It is akin to George and Tammy doing a night at the Grand Ol' Opry - only on mescaline." - Austin Onstage 

Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton first performed their award-winning country music satire “The Doyle and Debbie Show” in 2006 above a coffee shop near Belmont University in Nashville. A year later they set up shop in the legendary Nashville bluegrass club, The Station Inn, where they’ve performed nearly every week for the past eleven years.

Doyle and Debbie have appeared three times on Conan O’Brien and performed all over the world, including an 8-month stint in Chicago’s Royal George Theatre, for which they were awarded Chicago’s top theatrical honor for best musical, the Jeff Award. 

They recently released a new album produced by award-winning producer-guitarist Colin Linden, and have just returned from their 11th stint on Delbert McClinton’s Sandy Beaches Cruise.

 

"90 minutes of goofy perfection — clever, hilarious, wacky and brilliantly performed...” - Chicago Sun-Times

 

"...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
 

"Bruce Arntson and Jenny Littleton are nothing short of fabulous" - Chicago Reader


"...hilarious piece of low-brow inspiration turned into high entertainment."
 - Nashville Scene


"The Doyle and Debbie Show is a brilliant musical revue that should be seen more than once." - The Tennessean

 

"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


"Littleton and Arntson have breathtaking singing and acting talents." - The Tennessean


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

"Littleton is talented as usual, using her coyly flexible voice to solid comic effect even when she's singing things straight-ahead. Arntson is often flat-out brilliant, inhabiting his frighteningly lifelike character with a passion and intensity worthy of the country entertainers he lampoons. His tongue-twisting delivery of the show's closing number is masterful."  - 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

"A great script, supremely clever songs and two extraordinarily talented performers make this show worth seeing again and again." - 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
