Toby is an award winning actor and comedian whose one man show Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf enjoyed great success at the Edinburgh Fringe before embarking on a national tour, international dates and a West End run. The radio version was released on CD by the BBC and was nominated for a Sony Award. The follow up – My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver – was equally acclaimed and joined its predecessor for a double bill at the Garrick Theatre. His radio work (which includes afternoon plays, a Fright Night presentation and topical comedy) has been nominated in the BBC Audio Drama Awards and selected for Radio 4’s Pick of the Week.
He is a regular performer at the Comedy Store and resident compere at the award winning XS Malarkey comedy club so has a high turn over of original comedy material. He is also an expert on classic TV science fiction and British actors and has written frequently about both: his expertise often being called upon by newspapers, DVD producers and documentary makers. As an actor he has appeared in Holby City, An Adventure in Space and Time, Phoenix Nights, The Forsyte Saga, Emmerdale, Coronation Street and Casualty 1907, the forthcoming feature film Six Minutes to Midnight and dozens of radio plays. He also presents the weekend science fiction hour, The 7th Dimension, on BBC Radio 4 Extra, writing all of his own links. He is currently developing a sketch show for Lime Pictures.
