Tape Face gets stuck into Vegas

Three-year residency for America’s Got Talent finalist

Tape Face is to embark on a three-year residency in Las Vegas.

The Harrah’s casino has custom-built a cabaret venue for his mime show at a reported cost of more than $100,000, transforming a former burger bar into the 200-seat  House Of Tape.

The silent comedian, real name Sam Wills, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal: ‘The House of Tape has been a dream of mine for many years and it’s nice to be moving into Vegas. 

‘The door is always open to everyone at the House of Tape … But mostly it will be open when we are doing shows. Otherwise, we will have to close it for security reasons.’

New Zealander Tape Face, previously known as The Boy With Tape On His Face, won a legion of US fans after making the finals of America’s Got Talent season 11 in 2015.

‘House of Tape will be an immersive experience that transports audiences into the world of Tape Face,’ said Damian Costa, Caesars Entertainment vice president of entertainment operations. 

‘This uniquely, curated venue will usher in a new form of entertainment to our world-class entertainment lineup at Harrah’s Las Vegas.’

His show launches on March 16 and is to run every night but Monday.

In Vegas, Tape Face joins another AGT finalist who cut his teeth on the British comedy and cabaret circuit – as Piff The Magic Dragon currently has a nightly show at The Flamingo.
