Even MORE TAPE! The Boy With Tape On His Face adds an EXTRA SHOW in Wellington
- Big demand for this NZ International Comedy Festival star show
Due to public demand, there will be an extra performance at 9pm on Sat 12 May at the Opera House in Wellington of the brand new show – MORE TAPE starring NZ’s own The Boy With Tape On His Face.
The earlier 7pm show is all but sold out and, due to the intimate nature of the show, the producers have decided not to open the top gallery of the Opera House. Instead, they have opted for a second show at 9pm to offer festival-goers a better experience of this acclaimed show.
Tickets are now on sale for the extra show at 9pm. 0800Ticketek or www.ticketek.co.nz http://www.ticketek.co.nz
There are still a limited number of tickets available for the 7pm show.
MORE TAPE also plays in New Plymouth, Hamilton and Auckland.\
The Boy with Tape on his Face is a mad scientist of vaudevillian pranks, who reminds us that life is an adventure.
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 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.
“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
