Snot is Dead: Joe Kudla, Rest in Peace
Ren Fest aficionados from around the country will probably understand the reference almost immediately. Snot from the comedy duo Puke & Snot has passed away--which means a show that has been going on for longer than I can remember at Colorado’s Renaissance Festival will be forever changed.
I hadn’t attended the Fest in a number of years since, for me, it isn’t an every year thing. It’s something I have to work up a thirst for especially since the acts don’t change much from year to year. But the most popular act year after year was Puke & Snot’s and they were the only act that I noticed that had a strong merchandising push. Hilariously, a couple years ago one of my co-workers got in trouble for wearing a Puke & Snot hoodie to the office.
Next time I hit the festival, it will be strange to see someone trying to fill the role that so defined Joe Kudla’s career as an entertainer.
