Matthew Godfrey is a Canadian actor and graduate of National Theatre School of Canada. He has taught Shakespeare, Red Nose Clown and Improv in Germany, Norway, Turkey, U.S.A., China, Indonesia, England and India for the International Schools Theatre Association.
Matthew is most famous for his role as himself on the Canadian children's television show You Can't Do That on Television. He was on the show from 1986 to 1987, with his debut in the Season 7 episode "Know-It-Alls". His character was portrayed as the "know-it-all" of the show, who's huge knowledge base inadvertently annoyed his cast-mates. His normal clothing style was scholarly well-dressed, including a shirt, tie and the occasional sweater vest. Matthew's younger brother Amyas has also appeared on the show and on occasion they were in the same sketch.
