Toby Turner stars in "Annoying Orange" on Cartoon Network as the only human character.

Toby Turner was born in Mississippi to a family with 73 first cousins. He wishes that was a joke. After a few weeks of that, he packed up his diaper bag and fled the state. Unfortunately, it was too late — he was already named Toby Joe Turner.

In 2010, Toby moved to Los Angeles to fulfill his lifelong dream of living there. He has performed at clubs across the country as a comedian and a musician. When

he isn't channeling his humor on stage, he makes YouTube videos for his more than 3 million subscribers across 3 channels. His videos have been seen over 750 million times — and they range from sketches and comedic songs to "vlogs" based on his standup.

Buzz from his videos has led Toby to work with some major media companies, including Microsoft, Gamestop, NBC, Disney, FOX, MTV, Sony Pictures, Spike, and others. In 2011 Ubisoft sponsored Toby to go to E3 and interview 9 of their game developers. The resulting videos received over 17 million views. Toby was also commissioned to create an internationally broadcast television commercial for GameStop based on his "Literal Trailer" series, in which he sings a song about a video game or movie trailer.

His most successful web show to date is the animated series "Tobuscus Adventures." There are currently 3 episodes, each of which have received an average of 4 million views. He has also released 3 comedy songs in 2011 and 2012 that have reached the #1 top comedy spot on iTunes in the US.

Toby has starred in two features, one of which, "New Low," which was an official Sundance Selection in 2010. The other, "Smiley," is set for release in 2012.
