Terry Alderton - One4Review
Terry Alderton has been around the comedy scene for a number of years now, he was even nominated for the Perrier Award way back in 1999, so I was delighted to see he was returning for Fringe 2010.
Aptly entering onto his stage to the sounds of Madness on the PA he proceeded to deliver a frantic, occasionally manic, outstandingly funny hour of varied material, a lot of which featured his uncanny ability to mimic accents, both regional and personal yet also do planes helicopters and motor bikes.
Almost every avenue of the comedy genre was visited by this Essex geezer, all of which worked and worked well such is his versatility. He had his audience in stitches from minute one until the end, One of his most used ploys was back to the audience having two of his characters carrying on their own conversation,, how he managed to remember who was saying what I’ll never know.
I have seen a lot of comedy this festival of various styles, but for outright silliness and mayhem one would have to go a long way to find a funnier show than this.
