Terry Saunders

Chortle Award Nominee 2008 – Breakthrough Act
Chortle Award Nominee 2008 – Best Show
Chortle Award Winner 2008 – Innovation in Comedy

Terry Saunders is often told he's a storyteller by people that write about him. This is mainly due to the fact he tells stories for a living and isn't really that friendly with punchlines or one-liners (though he does have one, and it is a fucking corker).
Doing his schtick in stand-up sets tends to see him telling stories about his own life and his own rubbishness at dealing with life’s mainly pathetic challenges.
Fast becoming an Edinburgh Fringe stalwart, 2007 saw him do his third show, Missed Connections – a story show about a girl obsessed with the adverts people write to try and track down the strangers they've seen. 2006 was his first proper story show, Pulp Boy, about a teenage boy who spoke only in the lyrics of Jarvis Cocker. 2005's show was a bit rubbish. There'll undoubtedly be another show about loneliness in 2008, and it might be about Elliot Smith.
Terry is also the co-creator of laughterinoddplaces, the comedy thing that takes comedy from some of the best and most interesting comedians in the country out of beery pubs and puts them in strange places, like charity shops, the museum of london and Bruce Dessau's living room.
Terry is getting more arrogant as the years wear on, catch him before he peaks and then invariably disappoints.

"effortlessly funny … a gentle but genius hour" **** Metro
"a first class storyteller and raconteur … Saunders creates entire worlds of whimsy that an audience falls into only to emerge, as if from a gorgeous dream, an hour or so later … brilliant and heartwarming" TimeOut
"Saunders is successfully carving his own stand-up niche, and one that all romantics and emotional cripples should shyly gravitate towards" The Scotsman
"A fulfilling, grown up piece of comedic artistry" Chortle
