    I just noticed that Tape Face from Americas Got Talent has a show at the Flamingo. Has anyone seen him? Thoughts?

    Staying there soon. Looking for shows. Tape face is still listed on Flamingo website, but can find nothing on Tripadvisor. Not even a listing for it.

    I just didnt "GET" tape face on AGT. Im always surprised what I like and dont like on AGT but TapeFace didnt really excite me in any way, shape, or form however Id be curious of the premise of his show. $63 is a tad steep for someone who doesnt speak...at least blueMan has a cult following. Is he a poor mans BlueMan?

    I loved Piff and he came to CLE and saw him and it was def worth $26...wasnt a huge production but fun and entertaining and we took pics with him and Mr.Piffles after the show but Tape Face? Again, thats one persons opinion and Im sure since he did on AGT that will draw people and thats a great thing for him and TR business.

    I've always found mime's somewhat interesting and the tape is something different. I find parts of his act kind of funny but I don't know if I could sit through an hour or however long he performs. If I got free tickets maybe.

    I saw him on AGT, but couldn't figure out how he passed the judges. You couldn't pay ME to see him.

    This video confirmed my opinion. I want to kick myself for watching it.

    In my eyes, he seemed to peak early. There was one or two acts that he had that were decently entertaining, but later down the road, he just seemed to flop, in my opinion at least. From what I saw, it wouldn't be a show that I would pay to see.

    Now I will preface this review by stating my wife and I are huge Tape Face fans ever since his first appearance on America's Got Talent. Once we heard is was appearing at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas - we made every effort to make sure we got there to see him.
    We purchased the Meet and Greet package which allowed us to enter the showroom and speak with him for about 40 minutes, and as there were only about a dozen of us, it was very intimate. He was very friendly, talkative and answered all questions and told us some stories and facts about his show we would have never have know. We got a one of a kind Tape Face poker chip and a personally signed poster - and he posed with all of us individually for pictures. This was a great introduction to what was to be - a memorable show experience.
    As I have a background in show business, it is staggering to me the amount of behind the scenes prep work that goes into making his entire performance work. From the beginning to the end - it was 70 minutes of perfectly orchestrated lights, music and hilarious, self created skits - with running jokes and themes that run from the beginning to the end and plenty of interaction with the audience. For those that wondered if Tape Face would not have enough new material to fill a full show - HAVE NO FEAR as he has included many new skits that have never been seen on social media, some of which are better that what everyone saw on America's Got Talent and youtube, mixed in with some of his "fan favorite" skits that have become his signature. His expressions and working with the audience is truly captivating, and the resourcefulness of the props and ideas he has cultivated is nothing short of genius. It is non stop hilarity that had us rolling over with laughter the entire show. If you are a fan of what you have seen of Tape Face on TV, you HAVE TO SEE his show. It is an emotional roller coaster of crazy fun. I can say it is the most I have been entertained of any show I have seen to date and will take every opportunity to watch him perform again and again given the chance to attend. He respects and loves his audience and gives them everything he has on stage, and takes the time to pose with EVERYONE at the end for pictures, sign autographs, and share comments (though muffled through duct tape, his eyes tell every emotion - lol).
    In any given field you have those that rise above the rest and set a standard in excellence and innovation. In music you had Elvis, in sports it is Ali, Gretzky, Woods. One day I believe this quirky vulnerable boy with tape on his face will be remembered in the entertainment world just as those other masters have been regarded in their crafts. Tape Face is nothing short of genius!.
