The Diddlin' Bibbles are the brainchild of Lesley Robertson & Matt Shaw.
Lesley & Matt met while working at Theatre by the Bay in Barrie, spending much of their downtime making up dirty ditties and improvising the world that would eventually become Widdlywack, and the characters that are now Rose-Marie & Jessop Bibbles.
The duo began performing at theatre fundraisers and comedy nights. Acceptance into the Toronto Fringe Festival brought focus to creating a full-length theatrical piece and in January 2017, Dana Puddicombe came on board to co-write and direct The Diddlin' Bibbles Live in Concert. Lesley, Matt & Dana have been collaborators ever since. The Patron's-Pick-award-winning production was produced by Michelle Langille and stage managed by Laura Moniz.
The Diddlin' Bibbles perform regularly in the Toronto comedy scene.
