About the Show: BadFamiliar: Live

The show follows the evolution of world-traveled, veteran performer Matt Davis’ ideas as they have developed while performing and traveling through over 250 cities across more than 40 countries.

Stitching together a personal narrative where he is often playing the fool, he jokes about even the largely accepted norms of language, nationality, and global or regional customs. A persistent foil to his own ideas, he offers up a studied cross-examination of his experiences as he hilariously tackles the underlying goal of this show: to dismiss the equation "familiar equals good."

“After slaying crowds last year in his Shanghai debut, he’s back again” -That’s Magazine, Shanghai, China

“Humour comes easy when it runs in your bones! Great show!” -StrayDog.in, Mumbai, India
