'Toby is an actor, writer and comedian, who has a stupid name that no-one can pronounce or spell. He was born in a small cottage in Ludlow, Shropshire at the turn of the century, and even as a baby, sported a rather manly collection of facial hair.'
Manchester comedy Legend and host of XS Malarkey. Toby was the inaugural winner of The Les Dawson Award, beating a shortlist including Peter Kay, Daniel Kitson, Dave Spikey, Ken Dodd, Caroline Ahearne, Craig Cash and Steve Coogan. He works regularly in TV and Radio having appeared in shows ranging from Coronation Street to Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights.
'Superior stand-up skills – very, very funny' (The Guardian)
'A comedy genius' (Metro).

Still a relative newcomer, Marlon Davis is like a breath of fresh air on stage, with an impish grin, boyish enthusiasm and an effortlessly open, confident style that instantly wins him friends in the audience.
'A compelling storyteller whose anecdotes carry the elusive stamp of urban authenticity' (The Scotsman).
Marlon Davis tour dates
"Basically me and this comedy thing started off from the suggestion of a good friend from high school. He said I should try it, I contemplated it for about two years and eventually got the guts to have a go. Things kind of snowballed from there and it is now 3.5years later. It is probably the most exciting thing I've ever done with my life. There is nothing better for me than making people laugh - I never thought I'd be able live off it. "
