Basically, a fella with gaffer tape over his mouth doesn't bode well for an evening of comedy. But this exciting one-man show from New Zealand is attracting attention across the globe. Strikingly original and an absolute delight to watch, this is one of the most innovative and downright hilarious shows for years. There's no 'walking into the wind' or 'stuck in a glass box' here, but somehow, Sam Wills manages to get loads of laughs from his comic skill alone. Unique!
Fresh from sell-out shows all over the world, join TAPE FACE as he conjures uproarious & moving tableaux using only the most everyday of objects and the most popular of songs. 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.

My mum can't find me anyone to marry. My friend Matthew looks at me with great concern and says, "You're not thinking of becoming a Jihadi Bride are you?" Would I do that? The weather in Britain isn't great, and the sunsets and landscape in Syria are mean to be very romantic... I'd get a husband, wouldn't have to work, and would definitely get a place in heaven. Yes I'd miss my hair straighteners and hot pants, but that's a small price to pay.
Host of BBC Radio 4s Goes to Market and star of BBC1s Live at the Apollo Simon Evans has been immersing himself in economics for the last couple of years, like a pig immersing itself in organic cleansing elements. He has unpicked why the French don't want to own their own home (sex, obvs), why mass spectrometers reveal Americans to literally be made of corn, and why Alco-Synth - the effects of alcohol but with an effective antidote - is not likely to be appearing at a wine bar near you in the near future, despite having been invented years ago. As usual the whole thing deteriorates swiftly into a heartfelt rant about his children but these are at least the lofty aspirations he starts with this time
