Tape Face at Arcada Theater

Why see Tape Face?

As Seen on America's Got Talent

After making waves in the UK and his native New Zealand, Tape Face (real name Sam Willis) finally came to America's attention on the eleventh season of America's Got Talent, where his utterly unique act took him all the way to the final.

Taking to the stage with a piece of gaffer tape across his mouth, Tape Face brings silent comedy into the 21st century with his inventive blend of prop comedy and vaudeville. His act, which frequently involves members of the audience, makes use of everything from plungers to oven gloves to create bizarre, and strangely beautiful, routines that you'll never see anywhere else. For instance, during his time on America's Got Talent, he duelled against an audience member with staple guns and balloons, and brought judge Heidi Klum up on stage to recreate the pottery scene from Ghost with some silly putty.

Amazing show...we paid for the VIP tickets, we got to do a meet and greet with him before the show...he answered our questions and took pictures with everybody...it was definitely worth the extra money...I would recommend his show to everybody...there are lots of sexual references, so not the best for younger kids ...

Tape Face Knocked it out of the Park

We recently saw Tape Face at the Tarrytown Music Hall and were so pleasantly surprised at how engaging, hilarious and entertaining his show is. We enjoyed TF on America's Got Talent, but our kids were nuts over him. So when we saw his show being advertised we got the tickets, primarily for the kids. We all LOVED this show. He is so unique and likeable. His show is unpredictable since he pulls people from the audience and at any moment it can go awry. But he is a pro and turns every situation into an opportunity to entertain. And despite not being able to speak to the crowd, you can see that he loves his fans, posing for pictures with everyone and just an affection he has even when poking a bit of fun. We are all so impressed with this guy, I would see him again anytime. ... Read more
