After performing to sold out crowds in Toronto, Death Ray Cabaret returns to the Edinburgh Fringe with more fast-paced songs and break-neck banter. Silly, dark and delightful, come celebrate human life as we knew it with hilarious songs and characters. You'll leave the theatre with a smile on your face and a skip in your step as you head towards our impending doom.

“DRC manages to perform in three big, high-energy dimensions. The result is difficult to resist.” - BlogTO

“Hilarious… You just have to watch and see for yourself!” – The Insider, CBS Television

”Wonderfully executed… too infectious to ignore.” – Plank Magazine

“Saturday Night Live-worthy. ” – The Globe and Mail


News and Reviews for this Show

August 5, 2018  The Mumble
Death Ray Cabaret is a real-life couple observing life through the medium of comedy songs. They are Canadian & they are also an intensely satisfying experience, especially after a beer or three before their 22.30 slot. They are to be found just beyond the extremely serendipitous terrace at the Place Hotel, an oasis of neo-modern calm worth experiencing in itself – it is only open to the public during August. Add to this the two performers you’d most want to find yourselves in a train carriage with at the start of a 12-hour journey, & a fine Fringe night is on the cards.

I have already told my band mate he needs to see this show – he is an excellent pianist – & this is pretty much what I told him. ‘O My God Roy, I saw the this duo from Canada singing some tunes, like, they were proper funny, & the keyboardist, swear down, her fingers were simply twinkling all over the shop – she was superb.’ This lady is called Jordan, whose electric blue eyes gazed into the distance as she sang the quirky, catchy, well-crafted tunes alongside the infinitely amenable Kevin Matviw. That they have the occasional soft marital nit-pick only adds to the warmth.

Its caramel comedy this, each tune is poetic & melodic, arrowheads fleck’d with the Flight of the Conchords as we hear lines along the way such as ‘the first escape room was the woman’s uterus’ & have a bangin’ rave down the library. The time, the location & the quality of the gig all invite a visitation this Fringe. Its free, so you’re not gambling your cash, but sitting down to experience such lucid comedy songcraft & performance after & with a beer is a fine antidote to the endless streams of comics & improv & wotsits paraphernaling all over Edinburgh. Its also difficult to negate the effects of Jordan’s beaming pearly smile at the end of the each show. She – & Kevin – clearly enjoy what they do, & so almost certainly so shall you. Click Here
