Tap Head


Sat, Jul. 24, 2021🕐6:30 PM — 7:30 PM

BATS Theatre, Kent Terrace, Mount Victoria, Wellington 6011

Barnie Duncan has… a lot. 20 years ago he started drawing a character with a tap for a head. And now that character has come to life - with a souped-up show mixing physical comedy, mime, stand-up, animation and surreal theatre to create a truly unique hour of entertainment.

Tap Head explores the life of a lonely tap who works in a public toilet, a tap who also frequents open mic nights to test out his jokes. Spliced together with actual stand-up from non-tap Barnie Juancan, this show is a wonky meditation on plumbing, loneliness and amateur comedy nights.

Duncan is a gifted creator and performer who has delighted audiences around the world with his kooky characters and absurdist takes on the quotidian. Having collected a slew of international awards for his artistic efforts, Duncan is thrilled to be returning to BATS, where he won his first comedy award back in 2004.
