ARVADA, Colo. – The Arvada Center presents “Gregory Popovich’s Comedy and Pet Theatre,” an unusual production where pets become the main players in the show while the humans merely help out, comes to the Arvada Center for only two performance on Sunday, March 23 at 1:00 and 3:30 p.m.
Trained domestic dogs, cats, doves and a few other talented starts create an entertaining circus act for the whole family with European style comedy. All of the animals Popovich uses in the show are strays that have been rescued from animal shelters, and he respects them as his fellow entertainers. Popovich has been featured on “The Tonight Show” and “David Letterman.” Jay Leno commented “…the funniest circus act I’ve ever seen,” and David Letterman described, “It’s unbelievable!”
Russian-born and award-winning international circus star Gregory Popovich developed his performing talents at the famed Moscow Circus School. Popovich excelled at juggling and became one of the most proficient masters of the art of juggling. He toured with the Moscow Circus and later performed solo touring Europe, Japan and America in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Circus Circus in Las Vegas.
Tickets for “Gregory Popovich’s Comedy and Pet Theatre” are going quickly, and patrons are encouraged to call early to reserve their seats. Tickets are $10.
