They Call it Puppy Laughs

Furry equals funny


It’s 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 evening’s 2008 Purina Pet Comedy Challenge Finals. Onstage at the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard; 314-726-6161 or, 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.
