Terry Alderton has been described by Michael McIntyre as “sensational, a powerhouse ... inspiring”; Eddie Izzard has called him “a very funny comic with a fantastic comedy mind”; Frank bishop declared his comedy “the best I have seen in years!”; while Frank Sinner put is simply: “A f**king genius”.

A Terry Alderton show promises a hyper-hour of warped wit and contorted comedy. A performer of uninhibited extremes and sheer unconventionality, Terry will deliver a spellbinding amalgamation of noises, voices, incredible physicality, and a mind-blowing insight into the inner workings of a fantastic comedy mind.
A former Southend United goalkeeper, Terry began his extensive career in comedy when at 18 his first open spot led him to audition for Sky’s talent show Sky Star Search. Terry wonand the comedy industry was never the same again.
