MICF: More Tape

I know it’s a brave call, but if you can only see one show at the Comedy Festival, make it More Tape from The Boy With Tape on His Face.

It’s pure joy; like mainlining a rainbow.

It’s the show you go to when you’re feeling so down that kittens on the internet can’t make you smile.

It’s the show you go to on a date when you really like the person and really want the date to last long into the night and maybe forever.

It’s the show you take someone to if it’s been too long since they laughed.

It’s the show you go to if you’ve seen a couple duds and need to be reminded just how brilliant the Comedy Festival can be.

It’s the show you go to and want to be chosen for audience participation.

It’s the show you go to because everyone who’s seen it has told you to see it.

It’s a guy, Sam Wills, with gaffer tape on his mouth so he can’t or won’t speak. He gets people from the audience and makes a stage full of absolute happy. It’s clowning, magic and puppetry with a touch of genius and no description can do it justice.

It’s also a brand new show if you saw him at MICF a few years ago.
