I was a little disappointed in this show. I was expecting more dog tricks and a more up-to-date program. The overall theme was a little dated.

Entertainment was geared for 5 year olds. Can't believe that this is one of the most popular shows in Las Vegas. Seems dated. My dog can perform better tricks than those that were on stage. Not enough animal performances and too many stupid...continued

The show began 30 minutes late due to poor organization of the theater management. The show itself was fair; in fact we left at intermission. The sets were tired and frayed, the sound system was poor and the juggling was marginally professional....continued

Ticketing for the event was a complete disaster as the theater clearly had no idea how to manage such a large turnout of Goldstar ticket holders. Trying to put that aside, the show was still at best mediocre. It was hard to hear much of what was...continued

Disappointing, if not a bit bizarre. While the animals were cute, the tricks they performed were a lot less interesting than what you'd see on youtube on a daily basis. There also wasn't enough of the actual animals in the whole show! There was...continued

Great show for kids and grownups alike. My twin 8 year olds and my 16 year old loved the show equally. We still are debating who did a better job in performing, the cats or the dogs. Our household is clearly divided on the issue. If you are an...continued

We liked the acts/scenarios with the animals, and Popovich's juggling feats. Too much of the other guys jumping rope etc. This was not billed as a general circus show.

We were very disappointed. The show started 1/2 hour late due to "a problem with the box-office. The show itself was not what I expected. Instead of mostly animals it was mostly people. We left after 1/2 an hour.

I have personally attended probably 20 events through Goldstar. All have been very easy to get my tickets at Will Call and typically good seats. This was the most unorganized of all the events I have EVER attended. The Goldstar Will Call line...continued

Multiple dogs, cats and other animals performing with Popovich. Very entertaining and amazing. I know anyone who loves animals and especially the rescue community will enjoy this performance. Good for kids and adults alike.

This is a cute show, I love animals and appreciate they were adopted from a shelter and given good homes during he course of their "jobs. The all seem very happy & it is always gratifying for me to know that animals that "work" are treated well...continued

This was a bit more of a juggling and mime act than an animal show so it wasn't exactly what we'd been expecting. It might have been OK but the raucous circus music that played continuously was so unbearably loud and annoying that it completely...continued

The process of entering the venue was a disaster. I stood in a long line that did not move for an hour in the rain. The start time was 3:00 PM and the long line was not moving at 3:30 P.M. Absolutely unbelieveable! Someone needs to be fired...continued

This was absolutely perfect as a family event. I would say the adults enjoyed it just as much as the kids did. It was totally entertaining, well-paced, and with good variety. Popovich is amazing. Unfortunately there was a 25 minute box office...continued

Sort of low rent.A lot of the circus tricks were botched and the animal tricks,although cute,were nothing spectacular and there was too much circus/skit and not enough critters.Since there were animals my 7 yr. old was entertained.

This is a split review--the first half is for the show itself, which was entertaining, although it was riddled with technical (mainly sound) problems, that I blame more on the venue (The Wilshire Ebell Theatre) than on the Popovich Comedy Pet...continued

I went thinking that it would primarily be a show with the animals. But, about half of it was Mr. Popovich performing circus stunts like juggling, balancing on cans, and "clowning" around.

He was very good at these stunts but it was a bit...continued

What can I say: a Russian business is a Russian business. The show didn't start until 7:30, while it was supposed to start at 7:00PM. To be a few minutes late is acceptable, to start a show after the audience started clapping, then whistling, is...continued
