    This show is very inventive and original. It took me a while to get into the mood of the show but once there, it was inventive. A real credit to showing how you don't need special effects and high budget to make great entertainment, just a brill imagination!!
    Legroom is quite on the tighter side, but the view is strong and only just a few centres off from the seat. Although the seats are tight, very comfy. But my left leg was slightly digging into the binoculars for hire on the seat in front of me

    A very very fun show. Kind of a best of his work but more theatrical. My personal highlight was my boyfriend being dragged up to dance. Excellent fun. And what a finale!
    Sat in Stalls J20
    You can see absolutely everything from here. It's a great seat. We saw Tape Face which is heavy on audience participation, my boyfriend ended up being dragged on stage - so you're not safe from audience participation here! Very comfy and great view. Much better than the seats towards the back of the stalls here.

    I wasn't entirely sure what to expect with this show! I had seen a couple of clips from his stint on America's Got Talent, but the show itself is so much better! Tape Face relies a lot on audience participation - I would really recommend sitting in the Stalls as sitting in the Dress Circle meant that you felt very separate from the action. It does drag ever so slightly, just because there's a lot of to-ing and fro-ing from the stage. Would recommend though - really clever, niche comedy that I absolutely howled at! I think it's a very marmite production.
    This seat is toward the end of the aisle, so at a slight angle toward the stage. You can see most of the stage without any restriction - those in front do not obstruct the view. It's not too far away, but I would like to be closer. The seat itself is comfortable enough, but legroom is incredibly limited throughout this section, which can get quite uncomfortable! Would sit here again but would prefer to sit more centrally for the price of the ticket.

    A brilliant show which had elements ion the other shows I have seen him perform but had some great new elements too - love the 99 Balloons bit!
    This seat is one row from the back of the Dress Circle and about four seats from centre of the row. Each row of seats are raised so you have a good clear view of the stage even with any taller people sat in front. Good legroom and good view. A great seat for the price!

TAPE FACE SEATING PLAN
The Stalls are very deep and the rear section can be quite restricted as well as having narrow leg room and pillars in Rows S and N. The best seats are generally in rows AA-L however a high stage can leave you craning your neck in the front few rows.

The Dress Circle has a deep curve meaning seats towards the ends of rows offer a side-view, however seats in the centre can offer some of the best views, feeling very close to the stage and with no safety rail. The Grand Circle is a similar lay out, however higher up so generally should be avoided if possible.

STORY
In his distinctively funny and unique show, global megastar of comedy Tape Face is set to touch down in the Garrick Theatre in London for a 7 week run of hilarious performances, set to begin on 6th June 2017.

Tape Face is the name given to the show created by the New Zealand street performer Sam Willis, who has blended together his talent for mime, comedy and clowning to create his incredible on stage persona, that was previously known as The Boy With Tape on His Face.

Tape Face has won a huge range of awards including the 2011 Chortle Award for Best Breakthrough Act, the Fred Award at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival in 2012, the Adelaide Fringe Award for Best Comedy & Pick of the Fringe, the 2013 Chortle Best Variety Act, the 2012 Edinburgh Comedy Panel Award and was even selected to perform at the Royal Variety Performance in 2011.

He shot to international stardom in 2016 when he appeared on the American TV talent show America’s Got Talent, becoming one of their most successful contestants and even making it to the final.

Tape Face is the show that the world can’t stop talking about, with a unique blend of mime and comedy that has to be experienced to be believed. Beautifully visual, hilariously moving and heart-stoppingly tense, this a show that will make you both laugh and cry and when it’s all over, you’ll be completely lost for words.

Tape Face is mime with noise, stand-up with no talking – drama with no acting. As a former circus act and street performed in his home of New Zealand, Sam Willis began moulding all the best of these past performances into the spectacular The Boy With Tape On His Face in 2008, which became a runaway success at all the year’s comedy awards.

After becoming a smash hit at Fringe festivals across the world and becoming a hugely successful TV star in America, Tape Face returns to the UK for his biggest London run ever for seven weeks at the Garrick Theatre in the West End. Tape Face will begin performances on 6th June 2017 and will run until 22nd July 2017.
SUITABLE FOR
Tape Face is the perfect show for anyone who loves comedy and wants to experience something a little bit different. With Tape Face reaching great acclaim anywhere he goes, this is one show not to be missed if you want a good laugh. For those who have seen Sam Willis perform previously under the name The Boy with Tape on His Face, you shouldn’t miss the chance to see his even bigger and better new show.
