PUDDLES PITY PARTY
Beginning in 2013, Puddles Pity Party has built a tremendous international audience through a series of repeat-worthy YouTube videos. Puddles’ signature tunes include captivating and melodramatic covers of Lorde’s “Royals,” David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and a “smoosh-up” of The Who’s “Pinball Wizard” with Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”
Puddles has since performed all over the planet, garnering rave reviews at festivals like Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide Fringe, Perth Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Fest and Belgium’s Gent Fest. He was a feature performer in La Soiree’s 2014 Southbank show in London, which won the Olivier Award. He was handpicked by Neil Patrick Harris to perform Just for Laugh’s “Circus Awesomeus,” gala filmed for HBO Canada. And Jack Black selected Puddles to perform at the 2015 Festival Supreme.
The man behind the makeup, “Big Mike” Geier, has worked as an arguably more conventional front man for projects including the group Kingsized, an Atlanta-based fixture that continues to pack an annual Elvis Presley benefit concert and memorial celebration. Geier’s full-bodied baritone lends gravitas to powerful Presley crooners like “Suspicious Minds” and “In the Ghetto.” Geier’s mere presence adds to the tone as well, standing 6’8” barefoot and bald.
