ABOUT THE SHOW
The show follows the evolution of veteran performer Matt Davis’ ideas as they have developed while performing and traveling through over 250 cities across more than 40 countries. Davis stitches together a personal narrative where he is often playing the fool; complimenting it with hyperbolic comparisons and exposé to propel his never-ending comedic search for the forced-evolution of entrenched ideas.
Throughout the show, Matt Davis presents an outsider’s voice on topics from the grandiose to the banal; joking about even the largely accepted norms of language, nationality, and global or regional customs. Playing the foil to his own ideas, the world-traveled performer offers up a studied cross-examination of his experiences; all with the single aim to dismiss the equation “familiar equals good.”
ABOUT MATT DAVIS
Matt Davis has performed at the prestigious Just for Laughs festival in Montreal, JFL42 in Toronto, Sketch Fest in San Francisco, KLICfest in Malaysia, UICF in Utrecht, Netherlands, the Bengaluru Comedy Festival in India, and others.
In addition to 20+ years of performing, his comedic short films have been featured in collectives at the Film Dayton festival, the LYAO comedy festival, and the Cincinnati Film Festival.
In 2015 he launched the World in Jest project to embody the belief that real and imagined borders can be crossed when people prioritize communities of shared interest. By connecting with communities of performing artists across the globe, the project was able to produced over 100 performances across 30 countries in its 13 months, and Matt was able to work with over 200 established and emerging artists he had not previously known. Having evidenced its hypothesis, the World in Jest project was closed. While continuing to tour internationally, Matt Davis has begun working on a larger project and accompanying one hour show to embody his ethos more fully.
