Pet comedy show comes to FSHS


The Popovich Comedy Pet Theater – featuring a mix of animal and human performances – will be at the Fort Stockton High School Auditorium for a 3 p.m. performance on Sunday, Nov. 17.

The show features rescued dogs and cats who show off their skills alongside talented humans who perform European-style acts, juggling and acrobatics.

All pets that perform in Comedy Pet Theater are rescues from shelters — and serve as furry ambassadors for animals seeking homes.

“When people see these amazing, healthy animals on stage and decide to adopt an animal from a shelter themselves, my main message has reached the audience,” says Popovich in a press release.

Gregory Popovich's act was a finalists on “America's Got Talent,” and were guests on television shows hosted by Jay Leno, David Letterman and Craig Ferguson., as well as the Animal Planet cable channel.

Popovich is also a Gold-Medal Winner in Paris, France, a Special Award-Holder in Monte Carlo, and a Grand Prix Receiver in Moscow at international festivals.

Popovich is a lifelong advocate of animal rights.

He has participated in fundraisers for animal shelters and neutering programs across the nation.

Public-service announcements promoting responsible pet adoption are staples of Popovich’s Comedy Pet Theater.

Today, the furry or feathered performers in Comedy Pet Theater live in comfortable quarters as members of Gregory and wife, Izolda’s, extended household in Las Vegas.

Those who grow too old for the stage live in pampered retirement.

Popovich is a master animal trainer who employs positive-reinforcement techniques in his training — coaching individual animals to perform tasks based on their natural habits.

Tickets are $15 for children, children ages 3 and under are free for a lap seat, $20 for seniors over 65-years-old, $25.50 for military discount, $30 for adults.
