EP74 - Toby Hadoke - What the Manchester comedy scene has that the London circuit doesn’t…

February 21, 2017

Toby Hadoke is a Comedian, Actor and Writer who quite likes Doctor Who. He founded the long running Manchester based club XS Malarkey and books the Manchester Comedy Stores new material night as well as being a regular MC at the 99 Club. We talked about building an audience, podcasting and what the Manchester scene has that the London scene doesn't...

We talked about...

  • Why he started podcasting.
  • What the Manchester comedy scene has that the London circuit does.
  • How he made his career in comedy through his debut comedy show.
  • His thoughts being a promoter vs a comedian.
  • His thoughts on being discriminated against in acting roles. 



This podcast would be great for anyone who is interested in gigging in Manchester, going full time as a comedian or an audience member wanting to know some of the behind-the-scenes secrets of the Manchester comedy clubs.
