“Seattle’s quarterly Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam is also a growing forum for puppet development—including everything from muppets talking sex to shadow puppets enacting fables.” – City Arts

Spring has finally sprung and puppets are in full bloom! Come out and bask in the sunlight of a brand spankin’ new volume of the Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam. While puppet slams aren’t known to cause allergy attacks* we can’t guarantee your eyes won’t be watery from laughter and profundity.

Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam has been providing quality puppet shows for the fine adults of Seattle since 2011. From hilarious to heartbreaking to horrifying, every performance features a variety of fascinating short works by puppeteers from the Pacific Northwest (and beyond)!
Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam is a cabaret-style puppet show, where each short piece is performed by a different artist. From the brand spanking new, to the tried-and-true, every act is guaranteed to have one important thing in common: Puppets.

Kim Berman & Jonathan Grosvenor
Signal Light Theatre’s Pete & Randy
The Shenanigans Alliance
