Gregory Popovich's Comedy Pet Theater

Comedy Pet show Las Vegas

Location: V Theater - Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Show Times: Daily except Sunday & Monday at 4:00 pm

Age limit: None

The Comedy Pet Theater will definitely make your kids laugh! Everyone knows that dogs can do tricks, but you wouldn't believe what regular pet cats can do when they are trained by Gregory Popovich! Little cuddly house pets are true stars in this show - they perform various "scenarios" from the "human" life - they pretend to be firemen rescuing each other from the fire, they play doctors-patients, they skip with a skipping rope and push strollers. The show also features a few trained geese and doves, and of course Gregory Popovich himself! Comedy Pet Theater is truly one of the best Las Vegas shows for kids in 2023-2024!

Awakening show Las Vegas

One of the best new family-feidly shows in Las Vegas for you to watch that combines a brilliant storyline with plenty of artistic acrobatics, magic, and incredible special effects is Awakening. Performing at The Awakening Theater within Wynn Las Vegas, Awakening is the newest masterpiece to hit Sin City replacing the Le Reve which ran for 15 years with more than 6,000 performances. The $120 million production does not miss a beat as the storyline brings into play 10 different characters like Darkness and Light, Boo and Bandit, by using portals like Water Realm, Earth Realm, and Fire Realm to help restore love and beauty to the World. The production mixes state-of-the-art technology from a five part 360-degree stage which glows in fascinating colors to speakers in the seats to incredible special effects that leave your mouth open in awe. The storyline is narrated by Anthony Hokins which adds value to masterful performances of flying acrobats, magicians, and brightly colored dancers as they grace the stage. The choreography of the show is unique and one-of-a-kind making this production a must see when you visit Sin City.

The spectators are part of the show, as they are consuming their dinner with bare hands around the arena and cheering the knights. The show is silly, unpretentious and its one of the most fun Las Vegas shows for kids, especially little boys who love castles and horses!
