The Boy With Tape On His Face [Edinburgh 2010]
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2010
Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, The Boy With Tape On His Face is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend - or plaything. Shoes sing, empty dresses dance and electrical tape blossoms into roses creating a world of possibilities where the only certainty is laughter.
Sam Wills' exciting one-man show from New Zealand is attracting attention across the globe, The Boy With Tape On His Face has racked up awards for Best Show, Best Show Concept, People's Choice, to name a few at the New Zealand, Melbourne and Adelaide festivals.

Saw him at Stockton Fringe Festival. He got a lot more laughs than some of the comedians who rambled on without punchlines.
