|Born||Karl Julian Theobald
5 August 1969
Yarmouth, Norfolk, England
Theobald grew up in Lowestoft where he studied at The Denes High School around 1985 and went to dance school at an early age. He graduated from the Drama Centre London in 2000, to work with Theatre de Complicite.
Theobald is the one-time comedy partner of Russell Brand; they formed a double act during the 1990s called Theobald and Brand on Ice. This has been mentioned by Brand on his BBC radio show and in his autobiography, My Booky Wook. A quote from Theobald was used among quotes from others in Brand's book:
|“||"I decided to go into comedy when my girlfriend left me, after all my life's a fucking joke!"||”|
Theobald appeared in the 2010 film Get Him to the Greek, alongside former partner Brand, playing his assistant.
He has recently finished shooting the independent British feature film Downhill, which is a comedy about four men attempting Alfred Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk. It will be released in 2013 and co-stars Ned Dennehy, Jeremy Swift and Richard Lumsden. The film is directed by James Rouse and the screenplay was written by Torben Betts.
