While many comedians rely on shock humour, gags, props, and cursing – although he does admit to cursing, from time to time – Toby Hargrave relies on the truth: “…an exaggeration is still technically the truth.”
He’s convinced that the truth is the funniest thing of all.
A skilled storyteller, Hargrave has a wonderful gift for making the audience feel right at home (but not too comfortable) with his comically-universal appeal. In a world of overly abrasive comedians, Hargrave is charming and humble. One might even say he is chumble.
Hargrave has performed at the Vancouver Comedy Festival, Whistler Comedy Festival, Atomic Comedy Festival in Washington State and The Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal and has appeared at such notable comedy clubs across North America as Yuk Yuks, The Laugh Shop, the Comedy Mix, The Improv, The Ice House, Hermosa Comedy Magic Club, The Comedy Store, Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, The Laugh Factory and the Comedy Underground!
His television credits are numerous including the Corner Gas National television special, “Comic Genius” as well as his one-hour comedy special airing on CTV and the Comedy Network.
Hargrave will appear at the Tidemark Theatre on May 12 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $35; student/members/military pricing $30; English Entertainment facebook fans $30.
