Comedy Pet Theater to be featured as part of Cook Series
As part of the Marian D. Cook Series, Cloud County Community College in Concordia will be host to the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater on Tuesday, April 26 at 7 p.m., at the Brown Grand Theatre in downtown Concordia.
As with all Cook Series events, there will be no admission charged. However, due to the popularity of the show, tickets will be required. The free tickets can be picked up at The Blade-Empire, Brown Grand, Cloud County Convention and Tourism, Tom’s Music House, and the college. The doors will open for ticket holders at 6:30 p.m. Non-ticket holders will be admitted at 6:50 p.m.
The world-famous Popovich Comedy Pet Theater is a family-oriented blend of physical comedy, juggling and balancing skills of Gregory Popovich, and the talents of his more than 30 pets: House cats, dogs, parrots, geese, and doves. All of Popovich’s animals have been rescued from animal shelters across the country.
“I have actually nicknamed my show ‘A Second Chance’ because that is what my cats and dogs have been given – a second chance at life,” Popovich said. “The main idea of my show and of this tour is to raise awareness in our society about homeless pets.”
When not touring the country, Popovich and his animals are based at the V Theater in the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas. He has been featured in People magazine, The New York Times Sunday Magazine, and was a finalist on America’s Got Talent. Throughout the show, the audience will witness acts such as the dog classroom, amazing housecoats, and the animal train.
Popovich, a Russian native and former star of the Moscow Circus, has won numerous circus competitions and awards for his juggling and balancing abilities. He currently holds the world record for a balancing/juggling feat where he stands atop a nine-foot free-standing ladder and juggles nine rings.
