Comedy sensation The Boy With Tape On His Face is coming the Derby Guildhall later this year.

Following three years conquering the rest of the world, Tape Face makes his highly anticipated return to the UK.

This is the show the world can’t stop talking about. 

This is stand-up comedy with no talking, drama with no acting and punch lines with no words.

The artist formerly known as The Boy with Tape on His Face brings you a multi-award winning, multi-hyphenate spectacle that needs to be seen to be believed. 

Join Tape Face as he conjures uproarious and moving tableaux using only the most everyday of objects and the most popular of songs.    

Think you’ve seen Tape Face?  Think again. 

This year promises to be a bigger, brighter and more spectacular re-imagining of his unique and special brand of silent comedy.

This truly is comedy made for everyone, be prepared to get involved and enraptured as you step inside a comedy world unlike any other. 

Visually stunning, heart-stopping, and hilarious – you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and when it’s all over you’ll be completely lost for words.

Delightful, wry, many-layered and hilarious, Sam Wills (the man behind the tape) accesses an inner child in us all that must be fed.

Through simple, clever and charming humour aimed at satisfying that hunger, he has created one of the most accessible and enjoyable shows the world has ever seen.

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.

Wills creates a world of possibilities where the only certainty is laughter.

Previous shows have seen him totally sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for four years in a row.

He has also had four sold-out UK tours, a smash hit run in London’s West End, and has become a critically acclaimed marvel around the world.

He has also been a hit on TV, appearing on The John Bishop Show on BBC1 and The Royal Variety Performance on ITV1.

He is at the Guildhall Theatre in Derby on October 17.
