Legend has it that Puddles began his journey into the land of kitsch with a chance encounter in an Atlanta bar in 1998. The bartender heard him sing after taking a show flyer and tracking him down at his gig at a flea market. The sad clown singing karaoke on a boombox blew him away and now that bartender and Puddles travel the world together. His career exploded in 2013 when he was featured on Postmodern Jukebox's cover of “Royals” by Lorde. The YouTube video instantly went viral and has over 22 million views to date. They call him the “sad clown with the golden voice.” But don't be frightened by the seven foot clown. He soulfully serenades you into the evening as Puddles Pity Party takes over the KiMo Theatre on Thursday, Oct. 18 with beautifully arranged covers of rock and pop classics. The show is from 8 to 10pm for an all-ages crowd. Puddles won't be so sad if you can cough up the asking price of $35 to $100 for a ticket. Don't let Puddles be sad.
