Terry Alderton

Terry Alderton

Terry Alderton is one of the best live comedy performers in the UK. His act combines exuberant, loose-limbed physical comedy, extraordinary caricatures and stunningly acute impressions. With unshakeable confidence and street-wise hyperactive delivery, Terry leaves his audience exhilarated and happily exhausted from laughing.

Terry has been Perrier-nominated at the Edinburgh Festival and, in addition, has won the 3 Weeks Critics award, as well as Best International Act at the New Zealand Comedy Festival. He has performed alongside some of comedy's biggest stars, including Michael McIntyre, Joan Rivers and Eddie Izzard (who proclaimed him to be a "very funny comic with a fantastic comedy mind").

TV work includes The Stand UP Show (BBC1), Saturday Live (ITV), The Comedy Store (CH5), The Harry Hill Show (CH4) and The Royal Variety Performance (ITV). Terry has also hosted the BBC's National Lottery, Winning World Cup Tickets (ITV1) and Game Stars (ITV1). As an actor, he has appeared on TV in a wide range of roles, from a yardie gangster in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (CH4) to a Huntington Disease sufferer in Holby City (BBC1). His film work has included Black Ball (directed by Mel Smith), Keeping Mum, The Bird House, Oblivious and The Flirting Club.

Terry is ideal for Cabaret work and for Hosting Awards and Conferences where a comedic edge is the order of the day. Please contact a Prime Performers Booking Agent on 020 7251 8222 to discuss your requirements.
