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:

Theobald appeared in the 2010 film Get Him to the Greek, alongside former partner Brand, playing his assistant.
In 2014, he starred in the independent British feature film Downhill, with Ned Dennehy, Jeremy Swift and Richard Lumsden, which is a comedy about four men attempting Alfred Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk. The film is directed by James Rouse and the screenplay was written by Torben Betts.
