“EDINBURGH FRINGE SUPERSTAR” – ★★★★★ Guardian

 

After storming into America and being seen by over 51 million people online, Tape Face returns to the Edinburgh Fringe this year with the UK premier of his brand new show. 

New Jokes, New Props, Same Tape

Putting your shoes on will never be the same after seeing this show.

“Sheer joy.. Properly funny, truly wondrous stuff” – ★★★★★ Times

 

Sam Wills first launched his wonderfully unique creation, Tape Face, on the unsuspecting Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2010 where the show was an unmitigated success, delighting audiences and critics alike and receiving the Foster’s Comedy Award nomination for Best Newcomer. His appeal transcended boundaries of age, language and culture and it was no surprise that he received the Fosters’ Comedy Awards Panel prize in 2012 following a totally sold out season at the 750 seater Pleasance Grand.

“A joyous adventure-playground of games and pop culture parodies” – Metro

 

In 2016 Tape Face reached the final of America’s Got Talent (footage of his first audition has already been viewed over 45 million times on Youtube) and went on to present his debut season in Las Vegas as well as extensive tours of the UK and America. This was followed last year with a critically acclaimed season in London’s Garrick Theatre and a sold out season with his greatest hits show at Pleasance Grand.

Tape Face’s wonderfully imaginative use of household ephemera to entertain has led to him being one of the world’s most popular entertainers. He has also just announced a three-year residency in Las Vegas following a return to his performing roots at the Christchurch Buskers’ Festival and his third regional tour of the USA.

"To have such a command over your audience is the mark of a legendary entertainer, and Tape Face is exactly that: a legend. A master of the arts who dominates his audience and leaves you laughing infectiously for a very long time afterwards, Tape Face is an early but strong candidate for the best show of the Fringe this year" – ★★★★★The Student Newspaper

TAPE FACE

"As a genuine YouTube sensation, TV talent show star, and with a Las Vegas residency, Tape Face is a comedy rock god but he isn’t here to play the hits; this is an hr of brand new whimsical material that doesn’t stray far from what you’d expect from this unique act.. hilarious..Tape Face is without compare in what he does and this hour of entertainment shows that whimsy will never go out of style." – ★★★★Broadway Baby
