Toronto Sketchfest Troupe Profile: The Really Good Show

Not all of the performers at this year’s Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival are in groups. Our latest profile is of Kevin Matviw, a one-man act who goes by the name The Really Good Show. You can catch his performance at Comedy Bar on November 8 at 7PM.

Kevin’s responses to our questions follow:

How did you get involved with the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival?

I’m currently working on a full hour solo sketch comedy show and I wanted to raise awareness for this project by performing with the festival. I’ve been in the festival in previous years writing and performing with The Sketchersons and as one half of the now non-existent sketch duo Death Ray Cabaret.

What other troupe’s show at this year’s Festival do you most want to see?

I’d like to see A Classy Affair, The Templeton Philharmonic and British Teeth. Conveniently enough, British Teeth and The Really Good Show are performing on the same bill!

Why should we come to see your show?

You should come and see my show because I will be performing sketch alone, which is a feat in itself. I will be doing songs, playing multiple characters and it is all material I have been honing in front of audiences for the past year so it’s gonna be funny. If you don’t come, I don’t know what I’ll do to myself and you’ll have to live with that.

What is your favourite place on Ossington? If you haven’t been to Ossington, where do you most want to go?

My favorite place is the Lower Ossington Theatre, which is a venue for the festival. It’s huge! I’ve always wanted to perform there. The bigger your troupe/act, the better chances you will be booked there when they create the sketch fest lineup. This year, I’m performing at Comedy Bar in the broom closet behind the water heater.
