POPOVICH

A circus for rescued cats and dogs at Kent Tusc

With a prominent Russian accent, Gregory Popovich recounted the simple origins of his Comedy Pet Theater.
“I start with one kitty, one puppy,” he said. “Every year keep visiting to shelter, pick up one or two kitty and puppy. Now more than 30 pets in our show.”
Not only have Popovich’s canine and feline companions been rescued from uncertain fates in shelters, they’ve also found showbiz prominence.
 Headquartered most of the year at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater has toured across the U.S. and internationally. On March 20, the show will be presented at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University Tuscarawas in New Philadelphia.


Popovich’s performing animals have been featured on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” the Animal Planet network and an Arm & Hammer Carpet Cleaner commercial.
 Judging from a promo video, the show is action-packed and very funny, with cats, dogs, geese, a parrot and even white mice in all sorts of antics.

“The cats and mice are working together — but only on stage,” Popovich noted in a telephone interview. “In real life, everybody has private place. We have big custom-made trailer.”
