We would be lying if we said we didn’t enjoy story time as a child. Who didn’t? It was a break in the middle of the day that let you relax and digest all of the new things you learnt in class. Decades may have passed since your last story time, but you can still appreciate a breather from a long day spent networking with new clients and learning updated policies. Any keynote, conference, or sales function demands a bit of time reserved for non-work related things, and what better way to do that than with Toby Hargrave, hilarious storyteller and all-round great guy?

Dubbed the “happy Hagrid” of the comedic world, he shares with this wizarding character from Harry Potter a large and friendly presence. Audiences can’t help but be captivated by his easy warmth and self-effacing charm, making him the perfect narrator of your grownup story time. But that’s where his similarities to the character of the popular children’s series end. He leaves behind the safe and easy tales from fiction for the unusual (yet no less true) accounts of real life. Toby focuses on the absurdity of the truth to reveal the hilarity of everyday life.

Toby has entertained audiences all over North America with his unique brand of comedy. From Yuk Yuks to The Comedy Store to The Laugh Factory, he’s performed at some of the most famous theatres and clubs in the country. Over his long career, he’s also had the privilege of travelling and performing at such acclaimed comedy festivals as The Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, the Atomic Comedy Festival in Washington State, and the Vancouver Comedy Festival, where, in 2005, he was voted the “Funniest Comedian in Vancouver”. Since then, he’s travelled with other comedy legends, like Russell Peters, Harland Williams, Bob Saget, and Jeremy Hotz.

In addition to being a gifted storyteller and a celebrated comedian, Toby is a distinguished performer in the sketch comedy scene. Indeed, he cut his teeth on improve shows back in ’92, after which he joined the award-winning Rapid Fire Theatre and the renowned group Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie. He’s also nurtured an impressive career on the small screen and in feature films.
