Kilimanjaro Live and Gag Reflex present: The Boy with Tape on his Face is TAPE FACE

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 & 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.

Total sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for four years in a row, four sold-out UK tours, a smash hit run in London’s West End, a critically acclaimed marvel around the world (New Zealand, Australia, Sweden, South Africa…)

As Seen On:
The Royal Variety Performance (ITV)
Live @ The Fringe (BBC3)
The Comedy Prom (BBC2) with Tim Minchin
The John Bishop Show (BBC1)
