We saw Terry about 8 years ago and when we found he was in Edinburgh (our first trip to the Fringe) we had to go and weren't disappointed. Energetic, edgy and so, so funny, he's a genius. Thank you, Terry, we'll be back!
PS I had a count and I have 4 sets of nail clippers. But yes, my jeans do smell of wee.

Imaginative, inventive, manic, slightly terrifying - well worth seeing even if, like me, you have no idea what is going on most of the time. I was intrigued but slightly bemused - my OH, on the other hand, thought it was one of the funniest shows he has ever seen and was crying with laughter by the end.

Terry Alderton has lost nothing. His show is genuinely as edgy and dangerous as it is funny. Some old favourites are there: the evil demon / split personality, as ever, has a lot of ‘helpful’ advice for Terry. He does the shoe thing again too, and wow, his singing voice in that position is remarkable. As ever, Terry mostly heckles himself (let’s face it, no one else is going to).

Not everyone’s cup of tea, it would have to be admitted. It is a little like watching someone intentionally have a nervous breakdown in public. And the initial conceit of a dire Australian comic who eventually concedes the stage to his worst comedy character, Terry Alderton, has a whiff of cry-for-help about it. But it is a really hilarious, dark, sinister, twisting, magical 50 minutes. This is actually thrilling stand up….some of it thrilling like great comedy, some of it thrilling like a slasher movie.

If you like your comedy cosy, relaxed & middle of the road, well, stay the Hell out of Terry Alderton’s show. Everyone else should go & see it.

Oh, and although it’s a free show, I think about 90% of the audience bought a ticket, so you might want to do that to avoid disappointment.
