If you’re looking for something different this Sunday evening, a man with tape on his face may be able to help you.

Sam Willis, known in show business as “Tape Face,” will be bringing his twist on the traditional mime style of comedy to the Capitol Center of the Arts at 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Willis may be best known for being a finalist on the last season of America’s Got Talent, where he bewildered and entertained audiences with his act. In some ways, Willis is like a mime – he doesn’t speak, and the drama of his act is heightened by the dramatic eye makeup he wears. Then, of course, there’s the striped shirt.

But that’s about where the similarities end; Willis uses props and music to illustrate his acts, which need to be seen to be believed.

Tickets are $25 to $35, plus any fees.
