Silence will be comedy gold in the Carnegie Hall when The Boy With Tape on His Face, aka Sam Wills, performs in Dunfermline.

The award-winning New Zealander will headline the Gilded Balloon Comedy night on Thursday June 30 ahead of a UK tour in September.

The Boy With Tape on His Face brings big-hearted, innocent fun via a spiky-haired character, a strip of duct tape and a bag of cheap props.

His shows, a combination of old-school mime routines, a healthy dose of audience participation and facial expressions, transcend the barriers and are the perfect playtime for adults.

In the past Wills has transformed oven gloves into lovers and tape-measures into light sabers.

Duels have been fought with staple guns and balloons and the pottery sequence from Ghost has been recreated with Play-Doh.

Also on the bill is Australian comic Bec Hill, who has a talent for incorporating arts and crafts into her stand-up routines, and Aberdonian exile and award-winning stand-up, Robin Grainger.

Keeping both comedians and audience in check will be Glasgow comic Ray Bradshaw, one of the funniest acts on the UK scene.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are priced at £12 and £11 for concessions.

They are available from the box office on 602302 or online at
