Those traveling to this wild wonderland with the kids in tow will be happy to hear that Las Vegas has plenty of shows that don’t revolve around nudity or adult themes. Among those popular family shows is the world famous Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, which offers laughs and impressive animal stunts to engage the crowd.
Before any animal activists start to get upset, pet lovers will be happy to hear that all of the animals that appear in the Comedy Pet Theater have been rescued from animal shelters across the country. They are trained in a humanitarian fashion and are handsomely rewarded as they perform on stage with the title act, Gregory Popovich.
Popovich is a world-renowned entertainer specializing in family comedy and juggling. When a group of European style clowns take the stage the act becomes more complex, with multiple people juggling and performing balancing acts to mystify the audience. This show is designed for both child and adult entertainment, and combined multiple entertainment elements to create a satisfying show.
In addition to many clowns and human acts, the Comedy Pet Theater has a cast of ten dogs and 15 cats! Each animal has a special skill or talent that it will show off on stage. Most of these talents were natural, with the pets requiring little training to take the lead and show off on stage. From climbing to jumping to interacting with each other in adorable ways, these pets are sure to bring a smile to your face when you see them in action.
Popovich has won many circus competitions, including reputable international awards that are only offered to the most talented performers. This show has been around the world to over 20 countries, but has finally found a stable home in the bustling city of Las Vegas.
The World Famous Popovich Comedy Pet Theater is only available to see at the V Theater, or Variety Theater, located inside the dazzling Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. Tickets are available to purchase online, at the venue, or by phone, and run at an affordable family rate.
Showtimes are subject to change without notice, at any time, but are traditionally performed on every day except for Wednesdays, which are dark days. Shows on Thursday through Tuesday start in the early evening at 4:00 pm, in order to meet the needs of family groups.
