Huffington Post – Christian himself is a natural and fantastically self-deprecating stand-up.
Humour is a great leveller and comedy can break through barriers if delivered well. Terry Christian has found a natural home on the stage – a welcome reinvention for him and a great evening of laughs for those in the audience.
Yorkshire Post – This hilarious romp through the guilt ridden, and occasionally dark, realms of life is another brave step for Terry. He brings all the maverick qualities that made him a media bête noire in the 90s, via C4’s The Word, to deliver an honest, funny and sometimes profound stand-up performance.
