Did you know that in 1978 a San Francisco band called Little Roger & the Goosebumps recorded a mashup song that blends Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" with the theme to the sixties TV sitcom about seven castaways? I sure didn't! Well, that 6'8" clown Puddles Pity Party did and now he's performed this cover of it — yay! Read the rest
"Heard you say I'm not the saddest clown, you lied"
You haven't heard Lizzo's "Juice" until you've heard a sad 6'8"-tall clown sing it. Puddles does this one "Quiet Storm Style."

Our friend, Rebekah Del Rio, asked me how I would feel about doing Lizzo's song. I said I'd give it a go. I like saying yes first. This is how it turned out. I don't understand some of the references in it but I love me some Lizzo. Jonathan Burns helped me transcribe the lyrics. I especially like the David Copperfield lyric. And yes, that's really my voice. I didn't know I could do that before.
Studio audiences continue to be thrilled by the giant clown with the golden voice. Read the rest

Puddles, the sad clown with the golden voice, will be one of the many, incredible performers making this year's Beyond Brookledge more fun than ever.
Beyond Brookledge is an amazing collection of performances, in a spectacular place, put on by a community of artists who are just a ton of fun to hang out with. Every act is wonderful, the entire weekend is an experience. This year Beyond Brookledge will be held May 20-22nd at the Mission Inn, in Riverside, California. I can not wait.

A (nearly) 7 foot tall (unfathomably) sad clown with an (unexpectedly) inspiring voice will be serenading attendees of this year’s Beyond Brookledge with a special presentation of Puddles Pity Party during the annual weekend-long magic and vaudeville gathering at the (eerily) gorgeous Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, California May 20th through 22nd. The shadowed corridors and windswept turrets of the castle-like venue will be echoing with melodies and awash with teardrops as Puddles performs the songs that made him famous along with some new surprises that are sure to become infamous. If that sounds like hyperbole, it’s not… the combination of the Mission Inn, Puddles, and all the other Fellini-esque denizens of the ‘round-the-clock theatrical whirlwind is sure to result in something so grand that it will be as hard to describe as it will be impossible to forget.
