There have only been a few times in my life where I've laughed so hard in public I thought I was going to hurl. Two of those times involved animal acts. The dead-behind-the-eyeballs look on the bears at the Moscow Circus had me convulsing with laughter. And when I watched two poodles getting married at Circus Circus I thought my husband was going to have to carry me out of the building.
So, years ago, when I saw an ad for the Popovich Comedy Pet Theater I knew it was a show I had to see. But, since I'm also in the entertainment business, I also knew it was a show I had to see for free.
Yesterday, both my wishes came true.
While I didn't guffaw to the point of near death, I did laugh pretty hard throughout the entire show. Gregory Popovich, who was a juggler and clown in the Moscow Circus (I wonder if he knew the bears?) is a great entertainer who seems to love his furry partners. The fact that he can make cats do anything but pee on your keyboard is astounding. Most people can't even train their cats to come out of the basement.
