Comedian Xavier Toby puts a spin on FIFO life

With a background that includes engineering, journalism, creative writing and comedy, Xavier Toby is bringing his stand-up show ‘Mining My Own Business’ to Geraldton. 

It’s a land where everything is either highly expensive, huge machinery, or hi vis: right down to the socks, jocks and skid marks; where expletives are punctuation, a $50 note is loose change, and the safety regulations are tighter than NASA, but there are still plenty of people who break the rules.

Over the last decade Xavier's been performing on the comedy circuit and at festivals throughout Australia and around the world, at the same time as frequently contributing to several highly regarded newspapers, magazines and websites.

During 2014 Xavier has continued to perform at comedy clubs and festivals, as well as staging his regularly sold-out comedy and history walking tour. His touring in 2014 & 2015 has taken him around the world, including a run of sold out shows in New York City, where he currently resides when not in Australia.

Xavier Toby will perform at the QEII Centre on Saturday, 5 March at 7:30pm. You can find more information and buy tickets on the Queens Park Theatre website by heading to or you can purchase tickets from the Civic Centre, Geraldton Regional Library and Geraldton Visitor Centre.
