THE BOY WITH TAPE ON HIS FACE: MORE TAPE
After 3 complete Edinburgh Fringe sell outs with multiple 5 star reviews, The Boy hits the road again. This time with a brand new show. Mime with noise, stand-up with no talking – drama with no acting. This show speaks for itself. Combine the sheer, childlike absurdness of Vic Reeves with the deft, physical intonation of Hugh Laurie and the genius of Charlie Chaplin and you have Sam Wills: The Boy with Tape on His Face.
This exciting one-man show from New Zealand is attracting attention across the globe, ‘The Boy With Tape on His Face’ has racked up awards for ‘Best Show’, ‘Best Show Concept’, ’People’s Choice’, a Foster Edinburgh Comedy Award and a nomination for ‘Best Newcomer’ at Melbourne Comedy Festival.
Wills’ piercing blue eyes stare out over a rectangle of gaffer tape as he holds his audience spell bound, deftly unfolding the tangents of his delightful brain process, deliberately preparing each scene and finally breaking the suspense with each hilarious and unpredictable manoeuvre.
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 soulapproaching every object and audience member as a potential friend – or plaything. Shoes sing, empty dresses dance and electrical tape blossoms into roses. creating a world of possibilities where the only certainty is laughter.
Wordlessly conjuring the heart-rending poignancy of Buster Keaton, he mingles it with mischief and a piercing wit that leaves audiences enraptured. Wills is a mad scientist of vaudevillian pranks, who reminds us that life is an adventure…
