Comedians Toby Kid

He was a preemie born on Christmas day, right there at home. His folks couldn’t get him to the hospital and into an incubator, so they just put him in a crock pot. They almost named him Stew. However he was dubbed Toby and so the saga began.

Several years later he became several years older but was destined to always be the youngest of nine Iowa farm boys, Toby’s first thespian experience was in a Cub Scout skit, he was the bear in the lead role. Next, utilizing basics from high school speech and drama along with the grace of a football lineman, he threw in some juggling and magic. Toby entertained his keep through seven years of college, obtaining a degree in education. Yes, he could be tech’n.

Toby was off. To Europe, that is. The European street acts greatly influenced Toby’s style of mirth making and served as a training ground for his quick wit. “Trying to make the British laugh is like trying to catch a skunk without getting stinky,” says KID about his time over there.

Returning to the states, Toby immediately started carving a comedic niche for himself. KID performed with the great B.B. King and also Garth Brooks. Keeping it clean while making people laugh has given him the opportunity to perform for large corporate functions, major athletic events and for smaller groups like local associations, high schools and the FFA.

Throughout his career, Toby KID has performed over fifteen thousand shows and driven literally millions of miles. He’s performed in 48 states and 7 countries.
