Created by Sam Wills, and previously known as The Boy with Tape on His Face, Tape Face has been likened to a modern-day Charlie Chaplin by entertainment mogul Simon Cowell. Combining a mixture of mime, magic, silent film and comedy, Tape Face uses charmingly simple humour to bring out our inner child. Using basic props and a lot of eyebrow movement, this unique brand of comedy must be seen to be believed.
Originally from New Zealand, Sam Wills began his career clowning around before becoming a multi-award winning act and eventually receiving critical recognition at the Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2008. Since then, Tape Face has become a global sensation that is well-known throughout the UK and US, appearing on the John Bishop Show and performing at the Royal Variety Performance. After appearing on America’s Got Talent, Tape Face’s next UK tour has completely sold out.
A highly anticipated season, Tape Face arrives at the Garrick Theatre, bringing comedy, popular songs and a pensive, curious character. Expect to laugh until you cry at this jaw-dropping, heart-stopping silent comedy act, which runs at the London venue from June 6th to July 23rd 2017.
