For more than 15 years, Gregory Popovich has been touring the world with his troupe of renowned performers. But the talented crew that Popovich performs alongside is unique. The cast of Popovich Comedy Pet Theater is filled with rescue animals including cats, dogs, geese, white doves, parrots and a pony.

On Saturday, the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater is playing two shows at the Coppell Arts Center at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. The performance is family-friendly and includes more than 30 pets. Tickets, which can be bought here, are $29. The performance will be in the Main Hall of the arts center. Doors to the Main Hall open to the public 30 minutes prior to the show. 

As a child, Popovich learned the art of juggling, performing and dog training because of his parents’ careers in the circus. Popovich continued the legacy, eventually joining the Moscow Circus at 17 years old. 

Fans of the show may know it from Popovich’s two feature films, book or TikTok account.
