Popovich Comedy Pet Theater

The Angelina Arts Alliance (AAA) is proud to present the world-famous Popovich Comedy Pet Theater at 2 p.m., Sunday, January 5 at the Temple Theater in Lufkin.

Starring Gregory Popovich, the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater features European-style circus extravaganza including physical comedy, juggling, acrobats from the Moscow Circus, highly intelligent dogs and even house cats.

All of the pets are rescued animals and are trained using positive reinforcement techniques which enhances their natural abilities.

As a fifth generation circus performer, Popovich learned early how to develop strong bonds with the animals he rescues from shelters all over the country. He and his pets were finalists on "America’s Got Talent," and have appeared on TV shows with Jay Leno and David Letterman and were featured on Animal Planet.

This is a family-friendly event and there’s an animal food drive and an adoption taking place before and after the show.

Patrons are encouraged to bring at least one bag of dry dog or cat food to support the animals served by local animal charities.
