Terry North is regarded as one of Australia’s best imported comic hosts.
With a comic career that started in the UK writing sketches for Hale & Pace and The Russ Abbott show, as well as performing in many comedy plays and pantomimes.
Terry North hit the Australian comedy scene when he settled in Melbourne in 1996. Beginning at the legendary Esplanade Hotel in St Kilda, Terry went on to the national Final of the JJJ Raw Comedy Competition in 2001. Now a veteran of the Australian comedy scene.
Terry can perform sets of whatever length is required, tailored to whatever crowd is in front of him.
Terry has toured extensively and has many Fringe and International Comedy Festivals behind him And hopefully more than a few in front of him too.
IT WAS AT THE 2013 ADELAIDE FRINGE FESTIVAL THAT THE GOLF SHOW WAS BORN. Fairway To Heaven was a huge success in Adelaide, this is what they said:
Terry North’s latest show, Fairway To Heaven, is a comedic tribute to all things golf; called so because, as the Fringe guide says, all the other four-letter words were taken. With the odd ‘wife’ and ‘life’ joke thrown in here and there – as you do – there is plenty to laugh at with an array of golf one-liners too good to pass up. Comfortable on stage, and full of interesting golfing facts and YouTube clips, North takes his audience on an amble through golfing tips and spits in a relaxed, fun evening that is definitely one for lovers of golf.?
Final Word: On-par.? ****
