Topping off an incredible year, The Boy With Tape On His Face (aka New Zealander Sam Wills) announces his debut West End theatre run at the Duchess Theatre starting on 17th December culminating on 5th January 2013. He brings his critically acclaimed 5 star hit show to the capital this Christmas for a strictly limited season of 22 performances only. “hysterically funny – fight for a ticket” TIME OUT

Sam says "For over five years, I have had a West End season on my list of goals and I'm very happy that finally what seemed like a dream is becoming a reality. I am quietly screaming with excitement!"

“How best to describe Wills‟ incredible, uplifting talent? It‟s beyond words.” CHORTLE ✭✭✭✭✭

Funny, magical, innovative, spectacular and inspiring, The Boy With Tape On His Face has won the hearts and minds of the critics and public alike. This is stand-up with no talking, drama with no acting and punch lines with no words. 2012 saw him sell out his entire 750 capacity per night month long run at the Edinburgh Festival ending with him winning the Fosters Comedy Award, currently he is on an extensive sell-out 38 date UK tour of the show.

“...this boy is going places....” THE TIMES ✭✭✭✭✭

After appearances at last year’s Royal Variety Performance, BBC Comedy Proms with Tim Minchin at the Royal Albert Hall and on ITV’s Comedy
Rocks with Jason Manford it would appear the sky is the limit for this utterly unique comedy phenomenon.

"...simply spectacular, warranting the standing ovation" METRO ✭✭✭✭✭

This charming character opens up a new silent but hilarious world, willing audience participation & the undeniable power of gaffer-tape. The silent world inherent in Wills’ shows is perfect antidote to the plethora of motor mouth comics who tend to dominate the circuit. Non-stop talking was in fact how Wills started out; a successful stand-up and street performer, his comedy was already getting attention before he came up with The Boy, mainly to challenge himself to stage a show without words. What started as a challenge quickly grew into a global phenomenon, leading to awards, stellar reviews, sell-out tours in the UK and New Zealand, high profile television appearances and even a video game & pilot for the BBC.

„...Wills is the last word in silent comedy.‟ GUARDIAN ✭✭✭✭
