The artist formerly known as The Boy with Tape on His Face brings a multi-award winning, multi-hyphenate spectacle that needs to be seen to be believed to the city for two shows on Sunday.

Join TAPE FACE as he conjures uproarious and moving tableaux using only the most everyday of objects and the most popular of songs.

Think you’ve seen TAPE FACE (he was everywhere in 2016 after all)? Think again. This year promises to be a bigger, brighter and more spectacular re-imagining of his unique and special brand of silent comedy.
