Matthew Godfrey (born October 20, 1971 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a Canadian actor and voice actor. He is a graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada.


Early life

He has taught Shakespeare, Red Nose Clown and Improv in Germany, Norway, Turkey, U.S., China, Indonesia, England and India for the International Schools Theatre Association. Also in November 2012, he attended the ISTA Middle School Festival in Bangkok, Thailand, where he was an ensemble leader, and the theme was 'waves of change'.


Godfrey 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, whose huge knowledge base inadvertently annoyed his castmates. His normal clothing style was scholarly well-dressed, including a shirt, tie and the occasional sweater vest. His younger brother Amyas also appeared on the show and on occasion they were in the same sketch.

Voice work

He also voiced several characters in the children's animated television series Dennis the Menace.


Godfrey has appeared in several films and shows including Iron Eagle IV, The Private Capital, PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal, Once a Thief, Jonovision, Madonna: Innocence Lost, Dogg's Hamlet, Cahoot's Macbeth, The Private Capital, Blocked, Killing Moon, The Great Defender, Out of Omaha, Boogies Diner, Nobody's Business and Blue Like Jazz.
