Terry Alderton


Until now, ex-Southend goalkeeper and former holiday camp entertainer Terry Alderton was comedy's best-kept secret. His act is a riot of exuberant, loose-limbed physical comedy, extraordinary caricatures and stunningly acute impressions. Combining a fearless onstage presence, unshakeable confidence and streetwise hyperactive delivery, Terry leaves his audience exhilarated and exhausted with laughter.

Terry starred in ITV1's London Burning in 2002, and also hosted in his own radio show, Terry's Turnstiles on London's Capital Radio FM.

In 2000, after a highly successful sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe where he was nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award. This lead to Terry hosting the National Lottery programme, Red Alert, with Lulu for the BBC. Terry also appeared on The Royal Variety Show (ITV) and he has also hosted theme nights for Channel 4.  Other television appearances have included playing a yardie gangster in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (Channel 4), Jeff Wade, a Huntington Disease sufferer in Holby City (BBC), Ian Wright's Friday Night's All Wright (ITV), Stupid Punts (BBC2), The Stand UP Show (BBC1), Saturday Live (ITV),Night Fever (Channel 5), two series of The Comedy Store (Channel 5) and It Shouldn't Be On TV (Sky). Terry recently filmed a documentary called MYFC (Channel 5) about Southend United Football Club.

In November 2013 Terry joined the cast of EastEnders as 'Terry Spraggan' the new taxi-driving love interest of Bianca Butcher, played by Patsy Palmer.

Sometime actor and comedian who's been on McIntyre's Roadshow and Live at the Apollo. Terry's act is unique: a mixture of the surreal, part physical comedy, part beatbox, infused with clever satire and even the odd observation. Was on Let's Dance for Sport Relief as Tina Turner!
