Watch Tape Face’s performance with Heidi Klum on AGT:

Tape Face, whose real name is Sam Wills, is a 38-year-old comic, mime and busker. (A busker is another term for a street performer.) The multi-talented New Zealand native was featured in the New Zealand International Comedy Festival, the World Buskers Festival, and is currently a contestant on season 11 of the hit reality show, America’s Got Talent. His unique routines utilize a combination of physical comedy, mixed with creativity and silence. The performer is a favorite of AGT judge, Howie Mandel.

According to Wills’ description on his official website, “New Zealand’s foremost funny freak presents a show with more stunts, more mayhem and more stupidity than you can shake a juggler at. With cucumbers, orange juice and various weapons of (not so) mass destruction, Sam is a one man recipe for disaster that will have you in stitches…no really, he may actually have you in stitches. Seriously.”

For fans asking who Tape Face’s wife is, we’ll have you know that he is a married man and a father, as well! Wills has been married to an English burlesque performer since 2009. She goes by the name Lili La Scala, but her real name is Felicity Redman. The happy couple tied the knot in a “symbolic wedding” as kick-off to 2009’s World Buskers Festival in Christchurch. They were legally wed in England the same year.

In 2013, Wills and Redman had their first child, a son who they named Rafferty Basil Danger Wills. In an interview, Felicity explained the interesting choice of name for their son saying, “We thought Danger Wills was a good busker name. Basil Wills is a good accountant’s name and Rafferty Wills is a good name if he wants to become an actor luvvie. We thought it would be great if he could actually say, ‘Danger is my middle name’. That is just for us.” Keep an eye out for Tape Face on tonight’s episode of the America’s Got Talent Live Results show! Fingers crossed he makes it through to the next round!
