Puddles Pity Party, Moontower Comedy Festival, Paramount Theatre, Austin, 4/20/2017 Photos – Write-up


Puddles Pity Party is a laugh riot with a heart of gold.  Performing as sad clown Pierrot, Puddles bends the mime routine by adding beautifully resounding vocals.  Puddles made their way to the stage earlier to stop and take selfies with a few fans.  Puddles’ reaction to the Moontower Comedy Fest intro had the crowd cracking up before the show had even started.  Puddles honey drenched vocals filled the theater, kicking off the night with a cover of Twenty One Pilots’ Stressed out.  Most of their online videos don’t fully convey the awesome feeling of watching Puddles Pity Party in person.  They cover a variety of new and old standards in a very distinctive Puddles Pity Party style; to include their phenomenal new mashup of Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues music with the lyrics from The Who’s Pinball Wizard.  Puddles closed out the show by taking a bow with each member of the audience that participated on stage, in a true sense of fellowship.  Then, they led the crowd outside to the sidewalk to pose for pictures.  Puddles Pity Party will have you laughing til you cry and fully tug on those heartstrings with their magnificent vocals.
