Join New Zealand comedian and mime Sam Wills, aka Tape Face, as he brings his uniquely hilarious and moving comedy to City Hall, Cinema City Glilot on November 11.
Formerly known as The Boy With Tape on His Face, Wills was a finalist of America’s Got Talent in 2016, appeared on the Royal Variety Performance in 2011, was nominated for the Fred Award in the New Zealand International Comedy Festival in 2012 and performed for several years at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Taking to the stage with a piece of gaffer tape across his mouth, Tape Face brings silent comedy into the 21st century with his inventive blend of prop comedy and vaudeville. His act, which frequently involves members of the audience, makes use of everything from plungers to oven gloves. He has even been likened to a modern-day Charlie Chaplin by celebrity judge Simon Cowell.
“My goal is to make the audience remember what it was like to play,” said Wills in an interview with The Telegraph
. “I don’t think people play enough, and it’s a shame.”
Tickets to Tape Face cost NIS 199.
