Sarah and Lizzie Daykin have been performing as ‘Toby’ for just over three years. An unusually close sibling pair who write and perform together. Their 2010 Edinburgh debut quickly became an underground cult hit and their refreshing approach to sketch comedy won them rave reviews once again for their 2011 show ‘Lucky’.
They have written and performed for Dick and Dom’s Funny Business, Channel 4 and BBC Comedy Online. Sarah is currently filming for the new Sky sitcom ‘Chickens’ written by and starring Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and Jonny Sweet and you can catch them both in Channel 4′s sketch show Anna & Katy.
They are represented by Hannah Layton at James Grant: http://www.jamesgrant.com/media/client/toby/554
