He’s NZ’s new international success story, sold out in 2011, back with a brand new show at the 2012 NZ International Comedy Festival.

The Boy has had a huge year since his sold-out season here in the 2011 festival. He was the first NZ comedian to participate in a Royal Variety Performance in Dec 2011. He performed in The 1st Comedy Proms at the Royal Albert Hall backed by a 50 piece orchestra, followed by a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe season and a national tour of the UK. And he launched a brand new show, More Tape, which opens at the new festival venue Q – 305 Queen St on Mon 14 May following a short North Island tour.

Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, and puppetry, The Boy With Tape On His Face is a pensive, curious soul, approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend - or plaything.

This exciting one-man show is attracting attention across the globe, The Boy With Tape on His Face has racked up awards for Best Show, Best Show Concept, People's Choice, to name a few at the New Zealand, Melbourne and Adelaide festivals.

The Boy is a mad scientist of vaudevillian pranks, who reminds us that life is an adventure…

“The Boy With Tape on His Face is utterly spectacular! Endlessly inventive, hysterically funny. Sublime physical lunacy – fight for a ticket.” - Tim Arthur, Time Out *****

“A deliciously skilful hour, some of the set pieces are simply joyous, sometimes mesmerising” - The Times ****

“It’s not often you can say you really didn’t want a show to end” - The Scotsman ****
