TORONTO - Dec. 4, 2017 - PRLog -- Hot on the heels of the incredibly popular sketch series MUTHA ( , part of Rachel Dratch's Late Night Snack on truTV, Creator, Executive Producer and Award Winning Actress Mandy May Cheetham doubles down with her second television comedy show this year; Mandy Mayhem's Rapping with Actors, set to premiere on Bell Fibe's VOD channel tv1 on August 28th. (

Mandy Mayhem's Rapping with Actors is a wacky 22 minute chat show, filled with sketch comedy, passionate discussions, games, beat boxing, and rap. Operating on the premise that many actors are in fact closeted rappers and feel a sense of kinship with the struggles often articulated in rap music, guests discuss the hip hop artists and actorswho have inspired them in the pursuit of mastery of their craft and pay homage to their favourite rappers by "spitting lyrics" while backed by a beat boxer.

Mandy Mayhem's Rapping with Actors was inspired by Cheetham's back to back to back winning streak at Toronto's Hip Hop Karaoke and by her creative relationship with Abso Lutely Productions, with whom Mandy produced MUTHA. Abso Lutely is owned by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim - both of whom served as executive producers on MUTHA. Abso is most known for The Eric Andre Show, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and Nathan for You.

Shot in Canada's renowned MUCH Studios, Mandy Mayhem's Rapping with Actors features some of Canada's most well known celebrities, including Olunike Adeliyi (CBC's Workin' Moms, Flashpoint, The Parting Glass), Canadian Screen Award nominee Grace Lynn Kung (Miss Sloane, Mary Kills People, Heartland), Actress/Social Media Activist Elise Bauman (Carmilla, Below Her Mouth), Pedro Miguel Arce (Incorporated, True Detective, The Strain),  Nigel Downer (Dora nominated Second City writer, performer, comedian) and Gugun Deep Singh (The Strain,The Expanse, and 2016 tiff Gala Presentation: The Journey is The Destination).

Mandy Mayhem's Rapping with Actors resembles a late-night talk show, providing viewers with a wide range of visual and cerebral entertainment. Inspired by Cheetham's passion for both acting and rap, guests open up about their often comedic opinions on East Coast vs. West Coast hip hop, their top five rappers, and who should run for US President in 2020. Sparks fly as opinions get heated, alter egos come out to play and guests take a stab at hip hop monologues - truly bringing the two distinct worlds of hip hop and acting together.


Meet the "Chelsea Handler of Hip Hop"

The comedic host of the show, Mandy Mayhem, ( an actor and award winning rapper herself, knows all too well the struggles of the acting industry. Mandy, a young Mom, decided to become an actress in her thirties, a feat most would call impossible, but has overcome many of the barriers of the trade by looking to her inspirations and mentors, many of whom are hip hop emcees who've "made it". Mandy is also an underground sensation in the hip hop karaoke community and three-time hip hop karaoke champion of Toronto. As a further homage to the connection between rappers and actors, Mandy recently created a show about a suburban Mom who fantasizes about becoming a rapper called MUTHA. Complete Info and Bio: .
