The Hobgoblin Cheltenham Comedy Festival - More Tape: The Boy With Tape On His Face
"As The Boys appearance at last year's Comedy Festival was such a smash hit we've got him back with a brand new show! Mime with noise. Stand-up with no talking - drama with no acting. This boy has to be seen to be believed. As seen on The Royal Variety Performance 2011, ITV1s Comedy Rocks and BBC2s Comedy Prom with Tim Minchin. What does he do? The less you know, the more you will enjoy! But if you must know, he will have a gunfight, battle Darth Vader and bring John Lennon back to life. All this and more..."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
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..
'The Boy With Tape on His Face is utterly spectacular! Endlessly inventive, hysterically funny. Fight for a ticket' (Time Out).
'A truly magical experience' (http://www.chortle.co.uk)
'Wills makes a big noise by saying nothing at all' (The Evening Standard)
'Everyone should see The Boy with Tape on His Face' (The Daily Telegraph).
