Comedian Chris Gethard is a cat person. But this seventh episode of his public-access-turned-network show The Chris Gethard Show is 100% for the dogs.

Gethard and friends realized there was a dearth of entertainment for pups, so they did something about it. The live studio audience for the “Gethminster Dog Show” is entirely comprised of dogs, and the show’s callers? Yep, canine.


Special guest Jason Sudeikis of SNL fame gamely rolled around on the floor with Gethard and sidekick Shannon O’Neill in suits outfitted with tennis balls and dog toys. There’s a hilarious moment involving a chimichanga and a bag of poop…but you’ll have to see for yourself.



Uh, sorry…what was I just talking about?

Gethard has always championed the underdog, and this show celebrates just…dogs! Can we get this guy an Emmy, already?


I was watching from the lobby at one point, and saw these two puppies tussling over a carrot plush available on BarkShop!


Musical guest Jeff Rosenstock and his band rocked the house in theme-appropriate dog suits.


The real stars of the show are obviously the fuzzbutts. Most of the puppies are available for adoption! If you’re interested in adopting a television star, please check out Recycled Paws.
