Animal lovers, and those in the mood for a laugh, will find plenty of entertainment when Popovich Comedy Pet Theater comes to Western Carolina University’s Fine and Performing Arts Center at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 1.

Comedian Gregory Popovich leads the family-friendly show along with a cast of professional clowns and jugglers – and a large assemblage of trained animal performers, including cats, dogs, geese and parrots, all originally rescued from animal shelters. Stunts, skits and balancing acts fill the lively show, which has enjoyed popularity in performing arts centers across the country.

As the son of Russian circus performers and dog trainers, Popovich discovered his passion for animals and onstage entertainment at an early age.
