The star of America’s Got Talent 2016 comes to the Garrick Theatre next week with a full-length show and you could be there courtesy of This Is Cabaret.

Remember the days when mild-mannered men used to have to duck into phone booths to change into superheroes? All Sam Wills has to do is attach a strip of black tape to his face to become one of the world’s most famous clowns. Using everyday objects, popular songs and the occasional member of the audience, he creates superbly funny narratives – all without uttering a single word.

Known recently as The Boy With Tape On His Face, over a number of years the New Zealand-born star has become famed and loved all over the UK, whether it is up at the Edinburgh Fringe, various summer festivals, the Royal Variety Performance or the cabaret venues of London. Last year, America fell hook, line and sinker for him too and it is easy to see why.

Next week, Tape Face brings his full-length show to London’s Garrick Theatre for seven weeks as part of a sold-out 52 tour of the UK. The show is not recommended for those under 12 and runs until 22 July.
