Toby Hadoke at Crack Comedy London
We are sorry but Toby is not due to perform for a while.
Toby Hadoke is the highly regarded regular compere at XS MALARKEY, Manchester's multi-award winning comedy venue. He has also headlined at many Northern comedy venues and is an accomplished serious actor with experience on television, the stage and even in an opera! Toby's stand-up is renowned for its topicality and occasionally uncompromising political slant, and his delivery giddily straddles the humbly self-deprecating to the ferociously in-your-face.

"One of the local heroes of comedy - one of the regular highlights (of the night) is the genial and all-inclusive banter of Hadoke himself" - Ben Carlish, Metro

"Brilliant, had the audience in stitches" - Kevin Bourke, Manchester Evening News
