Puddles Pity Party

Dec 11 , 2017 · McGLOHON THEATER at Spirit Square

Prices begin at $25.00

Presented by: The Comedy Zone & Blumenthal Performing Arts

The ‘Sad Clown with the Golden Voice’ is back with a suitcase full of all new emotional anthems and plenty of Kleenex! As with any Pity Party performance, it’s not all sadness and longing. Puddles’ set is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments.  

With more than 180k fans on Facebook and over 40 million views on Youtube, including his acclaimed version of Lorde’s Royals, Sia’s Chandelier and other pop favorites, Puddles Pity Party has toured extensively in the US including multiple sold out shows at Joe’s Pub in NYC, the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco and the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles.  He has also performed many times in the UK at Soho Theatre London, sold out runs in 2015 and 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and he was a feature performer in La Soiree’s Southbank show that won the Olivier Award in 2015. Other worldwide festival appearances include the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Perth Fringe World, Melbourne International Comedy Fest, Just for Laughs Montreal, Belgium’s Gent Festival, Festival Supreme (LA), Bumbershoot Festival (Seattle), Moontower Comedy Festival (Austin), First City Fest (Monterey) and MusikFest (Bethlehem).
