Puddles Pity Party
It was Halloween 2013 when Puddles the Clown teamed up with Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox to record an epic version of Lorde's hit song "Royals" that instantly went viral. The YouTube video has received over 19 million views and growing. The "Sad Clown with the Golden Voice" has captivated audiences from around the world, building a fan base of more than 209,000 on Facebook.
When he takes the stage, he puts his suitcase down and doesn't utter a word. When the music starts and you hear that voice for the first time, you're in disbelief. The tragic clown has a rich, operatic baritone with expressive vulnerability that you wouldn't expect from a man of his stature. It's mesmerizing.
As with any Pity Party performance, it's not all sadness and longing. The set is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with awkward, tender moments.
Since "Royals," he's produced several more viral videos, blew away the judges on America's Got Talent and performed all over the world – from Monterey to Melbourne.
"It seems like a parody. But when Puddles opens his mouth to sing, it's beautiful. Operatic." – The Boston Globe
"Clever and often hysterically funny… (Puddles) is ideally suited to songs popularized by belters old and new like Tom Jones, Sia and Celine Dion..." – LA Weekly
"Pagliacci by way of Pee-Wee Herman and David Lynch." – The Atlanta Journal Constitution
