Doctor Mysterion in the Toronto Star

Shows Monday at 8 and 9:30 p.m., along with a curated collection of items to Curiosa at 1273 Queen St W.

Go to eventbrite.ca for tickets to Sideshow and Tell.

From the article "It's home, sweet creepy home for Doctor Mysterion" by RAJU MUDHAR in the Toronto Star:

Shrunken heads, mummified specimens and Voodoo artifacts are just some of the items in the collection of oddities that Doctor Mysterion has amassed in his west-end Toronto home.

The well known local mentalist has long been on the hunt for the strange and obscure through his various work engagements, along with Steffi Kay, his onstage partner in The Sentimentalists.

It’s got to the point where weird things just end up being offered to him.

“When I was a kid, I loved Ripley’s Believe it or Not, and I used to love going to the museum and seeing the mummy and the artifacts. I always had a fascination with unsolved mysteries. So these are things that have always been interesting to me, for example, like a shrunken head, or things that are part of Indigenous cultures or cryptozoology, like the Loch Ness Monster or the Jersey Devil,” he explains.
