A few years ago, we were at The Paul F. Tompkins Show at Largo and, in the middle of the show, Paul mysteriously got a call that he “had” to take. The stage was empty for a few seconds, but out of the corner of our eye, we caught the glow of lantern coming from behind us, walking through the aisle.
That lantern was carried by none other than the towering sad clown that is Puddles Pity Party, who then took the stage with several vintage trunks that were part of an ingenious bit and sang beautifully. It was enthralling, funny, and all kind of unbelievable simultaneously.
Naturally, we’re glad that Vegas will be giving him a residency at Cleopatra’s Barge at Caesar’s Palace from Jan. 17th-Feb 9th next year, so many more rows of people can hopefully be witness to the magic and charm of Puddles Pity Party.
