While Puddles the clown, star of Puddles Pity Party, never says a word, it is because he does not have to. Puddle’s emotive singing voice speaks for him and has won over fans worldwide. Known for his theatrical remakes of beloved songs, Puddles does not shy away from a challenge, having redone hard-to-sing songs such as Sia’s "Chandelier" and also taking on modern hits such as Lizzo’s "Juice". Puddles Pity Party also was a featured performer in the 2015 La Soiree Southbank show in London, which won an Olivier award.
Who Is Puddles?
Puddles the clown is the alter ego of Big Mike Geier, but a backstory was created for how Big Mike and Puddles "met" each other. The story goes that Big Mike was bar tending in Atlanta when a 7-foot clown walked in, not saying a word, simply motioning for a soda water. Big Mike noticed that the clown was sad and decided to go see him perform at a flea market. Mike ended up choking up when hearing the clown sing, subsequently becoming Puddles' friend and later becoming his manager. Mike speaks for the clown since Puddles does not speak in public.
