I had seen ‘The Boy’ on TV but following last night’s opening night of ‘More Tape’ at Q Theatre, I realised you really do have to see him live to fully appreciate this extraordinary performer!
The show is packed with visual treats cleverly entwined into stories which are often expertly timed to accompanying music. That’s not all! Don’t think you can hide from ‘More Tape’ as this ‘Boy’ can sneak up and select his participants at any time. Even from the back row!
His ability to control his subjects shows him to be a master puppeteer of both the willing and the more reluctant participants.
This show is packed with humour and has an abundance of surprises, no more so than with its finale, but don’t worry I won’t spoil any of them here.
I have to say I wasn’t sure what I was going to think of this show, having only seen a few minutes of his act previously, but it’s just pure brilliance on every level and I can’t recommend it enough.
With a fresh audience of potential stars every night this show will always be fresh, original and unpredictable. I am certain in the hands of this muted mastermind that every show will end as this one did, with a standing ovation!
You catch The Boy With Tape On His face with his genius show More Tape at the Q Theatre until 19 May.
