Born: Wednesday 2nd January 1974 (age: 49)


Toby Hadoke is an English actor, writer, and stand-up comedian.

He is particularly well-known for his work on the Manchester comedy circuit, where he performs regularly. He runs the multi-award-winning XS Malarkey comedy club, and is involved with many of the more experimental and financially accessible nights in the region. 

His first one-man show, Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf, which charted his passion for Doctor Who in an autobiographical manner, was a critical and popular success at the 2006 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

A sequel, My Stepson Stole My Sonic Screwdriver, was performed at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe to similar critical acclaim.

Hadoke can frequently be heard in the BBC DVD range, providing moderation for a number of commentaries and also presenting featurettes. He also voiced the role of Forester (originally played by Alan Tilvern) for The Urge To Live (Reconstruction) - the reconstructed fourth episode of Planet of Giants that was included on the DVD release of the story.
