Peeking inside the Technicolor mind of one of Britain's finest comic talents and you will find him desperately doing battle with "The Voices", two unpredictable and hilarious Voices in Terry's Head. Though often a challenge to Terry these two different sides of his ego/conscience often lead him into unpredictable comedy routines. No two shows are ever the same!

Terry Alderton is on astonishing form.... Masterful!
This is a mainstream act that dares to be different, that comes from the soul... Effortlessly enjoyable yet excitingly different. He deserves a big future.
The moment he steps on stage he delivers a dizzying whirlwind of sharp one-liners, character gags, dead-aim impressions and stunning sound effects... the result is the funniest most thought-provoking, dazzling brilliant comedy you'll see all year.
He was sensational, a powerhouse who had the whole audience on their feet at the end. It was inspiring to see a man reduce an audience to tears of laughter.
