LARD DOG goes off-off BROADWAY
with 15-week theatre run in NYC!
Are you ready for a HOO-LA-LEE?
Join us for an all-ages musical extravaganza that promises to entertain adults and kids alike. The Human Lard Dog is a cartoon character come-to-life who descends from planet Belopio on his Giant Pretzel to take you and your family on a musical journey of absurdism, frivolity, and unbridled joy.
Hollywood actor extraordinaire Mark Ruffalo declares, “It’s one of the most original shows I’ve seen in years” and entertainment critic Jonathan Fox raves, “This kind of fun is unstoppable!”
Lard Dog and his 6-piece Band of Shy invite you to their unique audio-visual universe complete with catchy songs, multi-media graphics—including art by star cartoonists Tony Millionaire and Sam Henderson— and a pretzel toss!
Come play along and slurp the noodle of life!
After all, Life's A Real Dream.

"Human Lard Dog and the Band of Shy is one of the most original shows I have seen in years. It is clever, incredibly well designed, wholly original, and out of this world fun for adults and kids. The humor goes just enough over the heads of kids to hit their parents square in the eyes. It is the best of Woody Woodpecker, the B-52s, and Ren and Stimpy meets cool 50's pop music. Double Bravo to the Human Lard Dog and the Band of Shy!"
– Mark Ruffalo, Actor
"Lard Dog is the pinnacle, the acme of entertainment."
– Tony Millionaire, Cartoonist
“I’ve definitely heard some bad kids music. A lot of that stuff is so redundant. Very predictable. Lard Dog’s music is imaginative and fun. It’s different from a lot of the kid's music that’s out there. As my husband says, it’s goofy in imaginative ways.”
- Leslie S.
“I like the fact that it's silly but not stupid. It’s silly, it’s funny, it’s even a little juvenile, but it’s not pandering.”
- Jason R.
“It’s like they respect kids enough to expose them to that kind of musical quality. That’s usually reserved for adults.”
- Jim S.
"Lard Dog is not out to teach young people their A-B-C's or how to tie their shoes, yet a lot of the songs actually teach something because they expose them to such interesting sounds and ideas. I find that educational."
- Diane E.
“I think children learn plenty from the album even if it's not in the traditional way. It’s whimsical and it fosters imagination. Also, they sing a long with words that they don’t even know, and that’s good brain food."
- Lynn R.
“The thing with children’s music is you want something that will entertain, captivate, and possibly educate without driving parents insane. I listen to ‘Colander Sun’ when there aren’t any kids around. There’s no record in our house that comes close to doing that.
- Jason R.
“My husband doesn't have any kid’s songs on his phone, while I have tons. But then I discovered my husband had the Lard Dog’s album in his car. I caught him! It was in his car, too!”
- Jennifer R.
