This is stand-up comedy with no talking, drama with no acting, and punch lines with no words. The Boy with Tape on His Face brings you a multi-award winning spectacle that needs to be seen to be believed. Join him as he conjures uproarious and moving tableaux using only the most everyday of objects and the most popular of songs.

New Zealander Sam Wills brought his unique brand of physical comedy and unbelievable feats of the imagination to Edinburgh Fringe in 2010 – the show sold out, and has done every year since. He has achieved a Foster’s Award nomination for Best Newcomer, the Fosters Panel Award, a plethora of five star reviews, four sold-out UK tours, a hit run in London’s West End, and an appearance on The Royal Variety Performance.

His appeal transcends the boundaries of age, language and culture. Delightful, wry, many-layered and hilarious, The Boy accesses an inner child in us all that needs to be fed. Through simple, clever and charming humour aimed at satisfying that hunger, he has created one of the most accessible and enjoyable shows the world has ever seen. We’ve been trying to book him for Larmer Tree for many years and are so pleased to have finally cracked it, this is an act which you absolutely must not miss!
