TAPE FACE

at Haidian Theatre, Beijing, China

Thurs 25th April to Sun 19th May 2019

Mime with noise, stand-up with no talking – drama with no acting. Tape Face has to be seen to be believed, and this Spring he will take to the stage in Beijing, China, for 24 very special, extremely rare, dates.

Sam Wills AKA Tape Face is a character with universal appeal. Delightful, wry, many-layered and hilarious, Wills accesses an inner child in us all that must be fed. Through simple, clever and charming humour aimed at satisfying that hunger, Tape Face has created one of the most accessible and enjoyable performances the world has ever seen.

Tickets are now on sale, to see Tape Face in action at the Haidian Theatre, from Thursday 25th April to Sunday 19th May 2019. Click here to grab your tickets now

Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, Tape Face is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend – or plaything. Shoes sing, empty dresses dance and electrical tape blossoms into roses, Wills creates a world of possibilities where the only certainty is laughter.

Britain’s favourite silent Comedian, Tape Face performed on season 11 of America’s Got Talent, which was aired on NBC to 11 million viewers. The audition has so far been viewed over 121 million times on youtube. He completely won over every audience he performed to, and became a celebrated Finalist - receiving standing ovations with his totally unique style.

What followed was a stunning 2016 - during which he made his debut in Las Vegas, became a viral sensation as one of the most viewed videos in AGT history, completed a sold-out 52 date tour of some of the UK’s most iconic venues and successfully persuaded a Spice Girl to wear a toilet seat on her head, live on American TV, in front of an audience of over 14 million. Tape Face then started his highly-anticipated residency at the Flamingo, Las Vegas, and went on a US regional tour, bringing fans his unique show, his appeal having transcended boundaries of age, language and culture.

In 2017, Tape Face performed a season in London’s West End at the Garrick Theatre, went onto a sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, made a successful return to the Flamingo in Las Vegas, and a tour of the USA, Norway, and Germany. In 2018 Tape Face returned to Christchurch Buskers Festival, then embarked on a regional USA tour.

The 'Americas's Got Talent' alumnus then announced a multi-year residency at Harrah's Las Vegas, and although his show contains no dialogue, his return to Sin City was louder than ever. In conjunction with his new show, Harrah's Las Vegas premiered a uniquely customised theatre, named the 'House of Tape'; an intimate 200 seat venue, created especially for Tape Face, with shows currently scheduled in until the end of 2019.

Smash hit talent series ‘America's Got Talent: The Champions’ aired in the US in January 2019, on NBC, where viewers were treated to an incredible showcase of the very best acts from the Got Talent Global franchise. Tape Face was chosen to make a triumphant return in episode 4, receiving a phenomenal response.

“Tape Face became an instant Edinburgh fringe superstar at the turn of this decade.. he’s got a skilful, strange and lovable act that’s capable of entertaining nearly everyone” – The Guardian

“utterly spectacular! Endlessly inventive, hysterically funny. Sublime physical lunacy – fight for a ticket.” - Time Out

"classic silent comedy with a twist, imagine Marel Marceau teaching you the moves to Blame it on the Boogie and you’re halfway to understanding the appeal of this compelling act" The Independent

"Wills is a slapstick virtuoso and can make almost everyone laugh" The List
