Puddles Pity Party at the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall

Posted: August 7, 2018

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 other awkward, tender moments.

Puddles Pity Party will perform on Friday, November 9, at the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall. The show is all ages and begins at 8:00 p.m. with doors opening at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets are $35, $45, and $100 (for a Premium Pity Party Pass that includes early admission, pre-show 'Puddles Cuddles' with Coffee 'n Croonin' and an exclusive VIP3er souvenir). Pre-sale tickets are available online now. General tickets go on sale Friday, August 10, at 10:00 a.m. and are available online, by phone at (716) 878-3005, or in person at the Performing Arts Center Box Office (after August 20). All price levels will increase by $5 on the day of the show.

Called “Pagliacci by way of Pee-Wee Herman and David Lynch,” Puddles Pity Party has 286,000 Facebook fans and over 76 million views on YouTube for his indelible interpretations of classics by ABBA, David Bowie, Cheap Trick, and Queen and his unforgettable mash-up of “Pinball Wizard" and "Folsom Prison Blues.”

Recognized for his recent appearances on America’s Got Talent and video collaborations with Postmodern Jukebox. Puddles has toured extensively in the U.S. at legendary venues like the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, the Kennedy Center in Washingto D.C., and the Troubadour in Los Angeles. He has also performed many times in the UK at Soho Theatre London and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Other worldwide festival appearances include the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Perth Fringe World, Melbourne International Comedy Fest, Just for Laughs Montreal, Belgium’s Gent Festival, Festival Supreme (LA), Bumbershoot Festival (Seattle), Moontower Comedy Festival (Austin), and Bethlehem’s MusikFest.
