Las Vegas is about to get a clown. Puddles, the sad clown entertainer who first gained popularity on the 12th season of America’s Got Talent, will kick off a headlining residency, Puddle’s Pity Party at Cleopatra’s Barge in Caesars Palace beginning January 17, 2019.

“I’m honored that Caesars asked me to perform at such an iconic room,” Puddles Pity Party said in an interview. “The cozy cabaret setting means I’ll be getting up close and personal with Peers from all over the world!”

The seven-foot-tall clown has a truly unique act that is part comedy, part performance art and all entertaining. Hailed as The Sad Clown with the Golden Voice, Puddles transforms popular songs like Sia’s “Chandelier” into moving pieces. His low baritone and sad personae make his performances both sad and stunning to watch. After his cover of Lorde’s “Royals” received over 24 million views on YouTube, Puddles went on to collaborate with Postmodern Jukebox in 2013. That collab went viral. Since then, Puddles has recorded several more collaborations with PMJ leader Scott Bradlee, including a cover of Mad World by Tears for Fears. His videos have earned over 100 million views on YouTube.

Because of his unique talents, Puddles has earned quite a celebrity following over the years with such stars as Paul Reubens, Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris, Penn Jilette, Drew Carey, Eric Idle, Nick Offerman and more hailing his work.

Puddles has shared that his set will consist of new material and classic, rarely performed songs, along with many surprises. In addition, the entire show has been custom designed to fit the intimate layout and decor of the Cleopatra Barge.
