About The Show
After three acclaimed Edinburgh fringe appearances, Toby Hadoke's solo comedy Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf embarks on a major UK tour.
Charting the rise, fall and subsequent rise of a television legend, Hadoke presents a personal, satirical and razor sharp comic odyssey charting the the Doctor's triumphs and disasters, and Hadoke's progress from child to man, through obsession, joy and disappointment.
Part memoir, part tribute, part stand-up, always riotously funny and sometimes surprisingly touching, this award-winning comedian's show is a must for anyone who's ever had a passion for anything. An intimate knowledge of Doctor Who is not required, although a disdain for the BNP, football hooligans and Hollyoaks would be useful.
Hadoke's devotion to Doctor Who is by no means the norm: he reminds us that current resurgence in the show's popularity is quite a turn around. In 1996 burglars robbed Toby's flat - they took a broken guitar, a Bananarama single (on vinyl) and half a jar of coffee, yet left his Doctor Who video collection intact. Now everyone wants a piece of it.
Toby Hadoke is the highly regarded 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.
He is a frequent broadcaster on BBC radio, and live audiences can be entertained by him at XS Malarkey and Manchester's The Comedy Store on a regular basis. He won the inaugural Les Dawson Award at the 2003 North West Comedy Awards, topping a shortlist that comprised of himself, Peter Kay, Daniel Kitson, Dave Spikey, Ken Dodd, Johnny Vegas, Caroline Aherne, Victoria Wood, Craig Cash and Steve Coogan.
