3 Jul

Your name: Kevin Matviw

Your production: Death Ray Cabaret

Your role: Writer/Performer

Tell me about your show.

After performing to sold out crowds at the Edinburgh Fringe, real-life couple and Second City veterans Jordan Armstrong (One Night Only/Dora Award Nominee) and Kevin Matviw (JFL42, Sunday Night Live) are bringing the dark and delightful music of Death Ray Cabaret home for their Toronto Fringe debut.

“Death Ray Cabaret were a DELIGHT. Our bellies hurt from laughing” – Comedy Central UK

Our music explores everything from true stories about being adopted, to an audience inspired R&B song. Plus, our relationship allows us to playfully mess with each other on stage. Jordan has an entire song that disses me, but there’s affection there… I think.

Campaign advertising for the upcoming federal election is replaced by one-person Fringe shows performed by the party leaders. Tickets are free so you can attend any show without necessarily being a supporter of the performer or their party. Whose show do you go see, what is it called, and what is the show about in a nutshell?

I’d see Trudeau’s ‘Abs on a Hot Tin Roof’. It’s a play where he works out for 60 minutes.

What other shows or artists are you looking forward to seeing?

We really want to see the musical comedy show “Six Frets Under” by Anesti Danelis and the cosmic weirdness of “Unbridled Futurism” by Nick Di Gaetano.
