THE BOY WITH TAPE ON HIS FACE
Multi-award-winning, international-sell-out, change-the-gamer in a rare London performance. Mime with noise, stand-up without the words, drama with no acting. This show speaks for itself.

Foster’s Edinburgh Panel Prize 2012. ***** (Times). ***** (Metro). **** (Guardian). **** (Telegraph). ‘Indescribably wonderful’ (Tim Minchin).
Quadruple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee. Intricately woven, offbeat standup. You won’t want to miss this. Seen on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and Russell Howard’s Good News. Heard on James Acaster’s Findings (Radio 4) and The Josh Widdicombe Show (XFM). ‘One of comedy’s most original voices’ (Evening Standard). ‘Stand-up of the highest most playful order’ (Guardian).
Two-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee. As Russell Howard’s Good News and heard on BBC Radio 4. ‘A natural comic talent’ ***** (Skinny). ‘She had the audience in the palm of her hand’ **** (ThreeWeeks). ‘A dizzying hour’ **** (FringeBiscuit.co.uk). ‘An hour of rapier wit and cute charisma’ **** (ScotsGay). ‘A complete gem’ **** (Gay Times). ‘A very accomplished stage presence’ **** (FringeGuru.com).
Sweaty one-man cartoons. **** ‘Chaotic comic theatre…an original, ambitious edifice’ (Chortle), **** ‘A work of theatrical mastery and comic innovation…deconstructive, satirical and stunningly structured’ (Fest), ***** ‘Maverick comic theatre…one of the most indescribably wonderful pieces of theatre I’ve seen’ (ThreeWeeks)
