Its a proven fact that animals can be a best friend to humans their love is unconditional. As it turns out, those oh-so-adorable cuddle monsters can be the best butt of a joke, too. Professional and amateur comedians have spent months poking fun at all aspects of pet ownership - from caring for squishy-faced, snorting pugs to lounging with leisurely, borderline-pathetic felines in regional comedy competitions to secure their spots at this evenings 2008 Purina Pet Comedy Challenge Finals
. Onstage at the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard; 314-726-6161 or www.petcomedychallenge.com
), the ten chosen ones provide family-friendly laughs (i.e., no dirty language, no animals in peril jokes) starting at 7 p.m. A three-person judging panel decides who will fetch the $10,000 first prize, and comedian Buzz Sutherland is your master of ceremonies. Get your free ticket to this all-ages, utterly a-mew-zing show at the Pageant box office.
