Puddles Pity Party
Puddles Pity Party - the soft-hearted, 7-foot-tall singing clown - has announced his first ever artist residency, set for nine unforgettable nights at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas at Cleopatra’s Barge.
Puddles set will consist of new material as well as classic, rarely performed songs, along with many performance surprises. Puddles’ entire show will be custom designed to suit the intimate layout and unique decor of Cleopatra’s Barge, which is the last of the iconic “old Las Vegas” showrooms.
The Caesars residency follows Puddles’ biggest tour to date, where he is headlining venues such as The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles.
ABOUT PUDDLES PITY PARTY
The 'Sad Clown with the Golden Voice' is here with his heartfelt anthems and a suitcase full of Kleenex! This Pity Party is not all sadness and longing. The show is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments.
A veritable "Pagliacci by way of Pee-Wee Herman and David Lynch" (The AJC), Puddles Pity Party has 305k fans on Facebook and over 120 million views on YouTube for indelible interpretations of classics by ABBA, Bowie, Cheap Trick and Queen and his unforgettable mash-up of "Pinball Wizard/Folsom Prison Blues".
