The Show:

A comedy coffeehouse, with games! Come tap your toe along to folky songs about love, robots, and the TTC. Find out why Steve is such a dick, via an unnecessarily convoluted musical pattern experiment involving a 15-ft keyboard held up by two hockey sticks. Come discover how Gregorian chant can actually be catchy.

The Bio:

Xave Ruth is an accomplished comedian, musician, and songwriter who has performed at Toronto’s Second City, Comedy Bar, and El Mocambo, London’s Aeolian Hall, Ottawa’s Improv Embassy, and many other venues across Canada and the USA. He has written and performed two different solo shows in various Fringe Festivals: “Hipsters Have Feelings Too”, and “Xave Ruth: Music + Comedy + Math”.

In 2016, Xave embarked on the Xave Ruth Dadvan Tour, driving across the country in a van and performing for hundreds of fans in living rooms, backyards, barns, cooool tech startups, and one airplane hangar (yes). It was Xave’s second national tour, having previously traveled the country on 2013’s Couch Tour.

Xave is a recording artist, and his self-titled debut album is currently on iTunes, Spotify, and anywhere else you can find music on the web.
