Toby appeared as himself in the West End stage adaptation of his book as well as in New York He's married with two children and lives in Shepherd's Bush (London's answer to Tribeca as he assures his guests).

What the critics said about the stage play:

"A gleaming statuette of the human spirit."The Evening Standard

"Unexpectedly touching."The Sunday Telegraph

"Toby Young is a great storyteller."The Mail on Sunday

"Young is a good raconteur, a handy impersonator and not a bad mimic.  He knows how to get the most from his skills and he delivers the material with such an air of conviction that it's impossible not to find it wildly funny."The Spectator

"Toby Young is a great storyteller."The Mail on Sunday
