• ‘Mutts Gone Nuts!’ performance to benefit St. Petersburg Free Clinic

    See the talented canines perform at The Palladium on Feb. 19

    Mutts Gone Nuts! Canine Cabaret Show is coming to St. Petersburg for a special performance to benefit the St. Petersburg Free Clinic. The benefit show takes place Sunday, Feb. 19.

    Adopted from shelters and trained for showbiz, the dogs perform tricks and stunts that will thrill and amaze attendees. The talented canines walk on tight-wires, jump through hoops, dance, balance on barrels and act mischievous. The Washington Post has called it “A must see!” performance.

    Mutts Gone Nuts creators Scott and Joan Houghton have brought their unique blend of physical comedy and circus arts to audiences from Las Vegas to Tokyo since 1985. The comedy duo spent three years with country star Lee Greenwood at his theater in Tennessee and seven years as the featured comedy act at three of Dolly Parton’s theaters before creating Mutts Gone Nuts in 2005.

    Comedian Jonathan Burns will also perform during the show. Burns’ flexibility, curiosity, and goofiness create a variety show that’s delighted audiences all around the country. Over the course of his career, Burns has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Jay Leno Show and The Late Late Show with James Corden. He’s been called “Extremely funny” by The New York Times and was twice named “Variety Artist of the Year” by Campus Activities Magazine.
