Toussaint Douglass is one of comedy’s most exciting and talked about new names and is already making serious waves across the industry. His innovative brand of stand up mixes the personal with the political, whilst adding a uniquely absurdist slant to brilliant comic effect.
In 2018 he burst onto the circuit gigging at top venues such as The Comedy Store, Top Secret Comedy Club, Banana Cabaret, Backyard Comedy Club, The Glee Clubs, Frog & Bucket, Komedia Brighton & Up The Creek and achieved rave reviews for his outstanding performances at several major UK comedy competitions.
Toussaint made his TV debut on BBC Presents: Stand Up For Live Comedy (BBC Three) and has supported massive comedy names including Russell Howard and Paul Chowdhry.
Toussaint is currently writing on The Russell Howard Hour for Sky One and contributing to multiple BBC scripted projects.
