Tape Face, the star who's been likened to the legendary Charlie Chaplin, is bringing his hilarious show to London's West End in 2017. This is sure to be a sell-out run and so we recommend booking your tickets pronto for the America's Got Talent finalist.

Following a cracking UK tour and a hugely successful Las Vegas run, Tape Face is setting up at the Garrick Theatre for seven weeks from 6 June until 22 July 2017. Previously known as 'The Boy With Tape On His Face', you probably have a good idea what his act entails, namely tape, but so much more.

This is a modern reimagining of silent comedy, the comeback of the mime, and a refreshing take on humour. Sure to tempt out your inner child, Tape Face's visually stunning performance is inspired by puppetry, Motown, and even Patrick Swayze. Eclectic? Yes. Funny? Very.

Think street artist meets out-there comedian, all mixed in with a smattering of household objects and a few rolls of tape. That, however, can not do Tape Face justice - he is one of those performers who just has to be seen to be believed. Transcending barriers of language and culture, the comedian communicates through the ultimate universal medium: comedy.

Just because his show is so unique, so funny, and so unlike anything else on the London stage, tickets are set to sell out faster than you can say Sellotape: this is a nifty heads-up and a subtle nudge to get booking if you want to witness this performer extraordinaire right here in the West End. We want to shout out about Tape Face, sing his praises, and tell you that this really is a show you have to see. When a comedian like this hits the city, we can't just sit in silence: our lips are most definitely not sealed.

Tape Face is performing at the Garrick Theatre June 6 until July 22. Tickets on sale now at tapefacelondon.com, and start from £23.65.
