A comedy of heartbreak and hope. Mostly heartbreak.
“Dawg Pounded” is an original comedic play with parody musical numbers written by long-time Browns fan Tim Tyler. The play tells the story of two die-hard Browns’ fans (Paul & Otto) who must cope with the ups and downs of a typical Browns’ season. In addition to enduring the chaos on the field, they both suffer the slings of outrageous taunting from their chief nemesis, Pittsburgh Pete, as they watch the games at their local sports bar.
While they experience the turmoil of a Browns’ season, Paul and Otto are also players in reenactments of the 1964 NFL Championship Game, Red Right 88, The Drive, and The Move. The play includes a number of parody songs performed by fellow Browns’ fans, Vickie and George. The play is a comedic examination of what it means to be a Browns’ fan – the torment, the doubt, and the disappointment, all wrapped up in the comfort of hope and optimism that, one day, it will all be worth it.
