A former circus and street performer, Sam Wills first began performing as the unique silent stand-up The Boy With Tape On His Face – aka Tapeface – in 2008.
The show was immediately a massive, multi-award-winning success. In it, the NZ born Wills has created a wry, multi-layered and truly hilarious character with universal appeal.
Even Simon Cowell approved when Tapeface appeared on a memorable edition of America’s Got Talent. Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, The Boy With Tape On His Face is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend – or plaything.
You have been warned!
Watch him perform at The Vodafone Comedy Carnival in Galway this October.
