Kicking off the 2013 Udderbelly Festival is a massive opening gala!
Tonight you get a taste of what to expect inside the giant purple cow over the next three months.
This is an over 18s only event.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Tape Face accesses the inner child in everyone. Through simple, clever and charming humour, he has created one of the most accessible and enjoyable shows the world has ever seen.
Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, he is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend – or plaything.
Since Tape Face’s ‘birth’ his shows have sold out around the world during which time he has become a critically acclaimed silent sensation with Simon Cowell comparing him to a modern Charlie Chaplin.
Award-winning Chaplinesque New Zealander who has been compared to Buster Keaton, Harpo Marx and Mr Bean..

'Wills makes a big noise by saying nothing at all' (The Evening Standard)
