LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Dec 20, 2016) - Following a stunning 2016 -- during which he made his debut in Las Vegas, reached the finals of America's Got Talent, became a viral sensation as one of the most viewed videos in AGT history, completed a sold-out 52 date tour of some of the UK's most iconic venues and successfully persuaded a Spice Girl to wear a toilet seat on her head live on American TV in front of an audience of over 14 million! -- Tape Face is proud to announce his highly-anticipated residency at Flamingo Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas show premieres Feb. 22 and will run through May 7, 2017 at Bugsy's Cabaret at Flamingo Las Vegas. The 75-minute show is totally unique -- a multi-award winning, multi-hyphenate spectacle that needs to be seen to be believed as he conjures uproarious, moving tableaux using only the most everyday objects and popular songs. This is the show the world can't stop talking about.
Tape Face accesses the inner child in everyone. Through simple, clever and charming humour, he has created one of the most accessible and enjoyable shows the world has ever seen. Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, he is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend -- or plaything. Since the creation of Tape Face, his shows have sold out around the world during which time he has become a critically acclaimed silent sensation with Simon Cowell comparing him to a modern Charlie Chaplin.
Ticket prices begin at $62.95, plus applicable tax and fees. VIP seats including a meet and greet with Tape Face are also available. Tickets are available at any Las Vegas Caesars Entertainment Box Office, by phone at (702) 777-2782 or by visiting www.ticketmaster.com.
