All proceeds benefit Texas Star Rescue. The show is sponsored by local pet enthusiast Alicia Nolte through Fete for Pets.
A family-oriented blend of the unique comedy and juggling skills of Gregory Popovich and the extraordinary talents of his performing pets, the Popovich Comedy Pet Theatre features Shetland pony “Diamond” and the German goat duo “Kurt and Helga” in a cast of jugglers, clowns, and over 30 pets including house cats and dogs (all adopted from animal shelters), geese, plus white doves, and parrots.
The animals love to show off onstage - performing a variety of stunts and skits. Audiences are delighted by the extravaganza of European-style clowning, amazing juggling and balancing act talented performing pets.
