Former Moscow Circus star Gregory Popovich leaves his regular Las Vegas gig behind to tour his juggling, clown and pet tricks act. The Popovich Comedy Pet Theatre features domestic animals, all of whom Gregory Popovich, a fourth-generation Russian circus performer, rescued from animal shelters. Popovich customized each of his pets' onstage tricks to match their natural skills and tendencies. By most accounts, the show’s highlights aren’t the pets tricks — although dogs answer math questions, one rides a push scooter and a cat pushes a stroller — no, the eyepopppers are the show’s incredible circus feats. Gregory Popovich and his cast of house cats, pooches and birds have appeared on David Letterman’s late-night television show, but the pet tricks involved are anything but stupid. Dogs dance, kitties risk whiskers jumping through hoops and the geese are worth a gander. The show also features (human) European-style clowns and balancing acts. This show is a charmer for all ages and great for families.
