Presented by The Stables in The Spiegeltent
Combine the sheer, childlike absurdity of Vic Reeves with the deft physical intonation of Hugh Laurie and the genius of Charlie Chaplin and you have Sam Wills: The Boy with Tape on His Face.
Wills’ piercing blue eyes stare out over a rectangle of gaffer tape as he holds his audience spellbound, leaving audiences enraptured by each hilarious, unpredictable manoeuvre. Drawing on an eclectic heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, this pensive, curious soul approaches every object and audience member as a potential friend or plaything, creating a world of possibilities where shoes sing, empty dresses dance, life is an adventure and the only certainty is laughter.
"Charming, mischievous and engaging . . .an agreeable series of well-executed set-pieces with a touch of vaudeville and a neat gimmick tying them together." Chortle
"Wonderfully random and playful.” Australian Stage Online
