About the author
Gregory Popovich, a native of Kiev, Ukraine, is an alumnus of the Great Moscow Circus and the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, a trained clown, and a world record-setting juggler. A professional circus performer since age 12, he personally trains the dogs and cats (all rescued from animal shelters) that form the core cast of Comedy Pet Theater. The show is an award-winning, family oriented act that features stunning animal tricks, Gregory’s unique comedy and juggling, and performances by European-style clowns and balancing acts.
Comedy Pet Theater has performed in 25 countries and been featured on television’s The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Animal Planet, and America’s Got Talent. Comedy Pet Theater also has been featured in People magazine, The New York Times Sunday Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, and the New Yorker. “Comedy Pet Theater is like a Cirque show with animals,” USA Today said.
Popovich lives in Las Vegas with his wife, Izolda, and their daughter, Anastasia, who also perform in the show. The Popoviches’ extended household includes more than 50 furry or feathered members — dogs, cats, ferrets, white mice, geese, doves, and a parrot.
