Comedian and actor Terry Alderton makes a welcome return to this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival after a 3-year hiatus with his new show ‘All Crazy Now’.
If Kenny Everett and Spike Milligan got together they would be making a show like this – a brilliantly hilarious one man Goon Show. ‘All Crazy Now’ heads to the prestigious Pleasance Courtyard for the whole month of August.
2nd – 27th August
‘All Crazy Now’ is taken from his hit and critically acclaimed Radio 4 series of the same name, where he plays every character and sings every crazy song. Characters include the dancing bear, Akil Chowdry, Morgan the Freeman, his inner voices and Victor, there are songs about pole vaulting chickens, sausages, cornflakes and keeping your dreams alive…
The live show is a glimpse into the chaotic, frenetic, hallucinatory and unique mind of Terry Alderton… aided and abetted by his long-term collaborator Johnny Spurling. Terry is a truly original comic voice unleashed – he is unpredictable, and at times unhinged, so be prepare for a sensory assault!
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.
