Tap Head

Presenting BATS' Third Co-Pro Show of 2021.

A profoundly funny adventure in anthropomorphism.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a tap?

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.

“Distinctive and beautifully absurd... Just the sort of boundary-nudging work that comedy festivals should be encouraging.”

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.

Written & Performed by Barnie Duncan.

Directed by Katy Maudlin.

Sound Design by Daniel Nixon.

Animated by Caiden Jacobson.

Produced by Anna Groot.

With a special thank you to Daltons and Plumbing World for partnering with us to make this show possible.
