UA-PTC proudly presents performance by Puddles Pity Party
Puddles Pity Party, starring the “Sad Clown with the Golden Voice,” will bring his heartfelt anthems and a suitcase full of Kleenex to The Center for Humanities and Arts (CHARTS) at UA – Pulaski Technical College’s Main campus on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m. CHARTS is located at 3000 West Scenic Drive in North Little Rock, Ark.
Tickets are priced at $25 standing room only ($10 for students) and $40 to $55 reserved seating. Tickets will go on sale at www.uaptc.edu/charts at 12 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 17.
This Pity Party is not all sadness and longing, but is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments. The interactive multi-media show encourages audience participation.
Puddles Pity Party has 305,000 fans on Facebook and over 120 million views on YouTube for indelible interpretations of classics by ABBA, Bowie, Cheap Trick and Queen and his unforgettable mash-up of Pinball Wizard/Folsom Prison Blues. You may recognize him from his recent appearances on Americas Got Talent and viral video collaborations with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox.
Puddles has toured extensively in the US at legendary venues like the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, the Kennedy Center in 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, Belgiums Gent Festival, Festival Supreme (LA), Bumbershoot Festival (Seattle), Moontower Comedy Festival (Austin), and Bethlehems MusikFest."This show is going to be one of the most moving, yet comical, performances you will have the chance to see this year," said Vice Chancellor of Advancement Shannon Boshears." We are extremely lucky to have a state-of-the-art performance venue that allows us to bring in such popular and high-quality acts to the UA - Pulaski Tech Campus. Puddles Pity Party is sure to provide a performance full of panache!"
