Popovich Comedy Pet Theater to Appear at the Capitol Center for the Arts
Popovich Comedy Pet Theater will appear at the Capitol Center for the Arts (Concord, NH) on Friday, November 10 at 6 PM.
This lively show is entertainment for the whole family. It features the unique blend of comedy and juggling skills of Gregory Popovich and the extraordinary talents of his performing pets. His entourage consists of world-class jugglers, Diamond the Shetland Pony and over 30 performing pets including house cats and dogs (all rescued from animal shelters!), geese, white doves and parrots.
Popovich is a former Soviet Union circus star, having won numerous international awards for his juggling. He performed with the prestigious Moscow State Circus and later became the featured act as the first Russian performer in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. His parents were also circus performers, and he bonded with dogs and cats at an early age.
The Popovich Comedy Pet Theater has a rich performance history, presenting thousands of shows in more than 20 countries and is currently in its 6th season at the Planet Hollywood Resort/Casino in Las Vegas.
Popovich regularly participates in fundraisers for animal shelters and neutering programs across the nation. In keeping with principles of responsible pet ownership, he ensures that his animal co-stars live out a comfortable retirement at his home when they grow too old to perform.
