Ed Fringe 2019

There’s something you should know, before we start this show…

Terry Alderton is back at the Edinburgh Fringe for 2019 and it’s going to be a whole load of fun.

Edinburgh’s favourite, award-winning, unpredictable comedian is here for outright laughs and you’re invited along for the ride. A blistering new show that captures the true spirit of the Fringe. No politics, no message, just an hour of stand-up comedy and chaos from one of the best in the business.

In 2017 he won the Malcolm Hardee Award for the ‘All Crazy Now’, and was awarded a blistering five star review from Kate Copstick in the Scotsman.

4th – 25th August


The Monkey Barrel

Terry really wants as many people to come and have a great night as possible – and what’s more, BINGO BANGO is a pay what you want show. You can reserve tickets in advance, but if you can’t afford that, just come and have a great time. Bring everyone.

“The feeling that you get in a room when the comedy is this good is unique. The audience becomes a single entity, bound by laughter and enjoyment. It is a powerful and rarely felt effect and you really must experience it.

Thank you Terry Alderton, for giving me the comedy thrill of a lifetime.”
Kate Copstick, The Scotsman, August 2017. *****


Comic – The Film

Comic the Film

COMIC is an exciting new documentary that explores the interface between creative expression and mental health, featuring Terry.

This documentary is an intimate portrait of an exceptionally creative and productive individual. Funny and compelling, Terry shares how he manages to express himself creatively and how his mental illness has both helped and hindered his creativity.

Shot over twelve months, COMIC was directed and produced by award winning filmmakers Sam & Ben Callis.

Find out more about the film from the official website comicthefilm.com, which features extra trailers, backstage photos from the tour and information on how and where you can see this incredible film.

UK Dates

Terry is doing a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe this year!


The Monkey Barrel, 6pm every night, £8 in advance or pay what the fuck you like on the way out.

No further shows booked at the moment.

There’s going to be a nationwide tour announced soon – follow @terryalderton for the latest news, and come back here to get your tickets!



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 is one of the most exciting comedians around regularly performing all over the globe. In the last year alone he has played the Melbourne Australia Comedy Festival, New Zealand Comedy Festival, India and Edinburgh Comedy Festival. Terry has been Perrier nominated in Edinburgh and recently won the ‘3 Weeks Critics’ award as well as Best International Act at the New Zealand Comedy Festival. This frequent traveling has meant performing alongside some of comedy’s biggest stars. Michael McIntyre has found Terry as a source of inspiration. He has recently worked with Joan Rivers who became an instant fan and Eddie Izzard who proclaimed him to be a ‘very funny comic with a fantastic comedy mind’, but someone who really ought to seek some sort of professional help.
