Terry Cotta

Funniest Comedian You Will Ever See

A Lancashire lad born and bred,

Terry has been in the business for 23 years and throughout those years he has attained a wealth of experience. He started out in the business in 1992 and in 1993 secured his first summer season in Blackpool and has been performing there every year since. He regularly performs at The Talk of the Coast (Viking Hotel), The Cliffs Hotel, The Claremont Hotel and the Bloomfield Working mens Club. Terry has also worked in theatres all over the north including The Grand Theatre Blackpool.

His popularity and success is not just limited to Blackpool, but he has had great success in clubs and varied venues all over the country and obtained a great reputation as one of the best after dinner comedians on the circuit. One of his strengths in comedy is to deliver good clean material with impeccable timing. In December 2013 he was extremely proud to be asked to perform at St James Palace in London by appointment of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester in the State Apartments for the Not Forgotten Association.

Over the years Terry has built up a reputation of being one of the busiest and most sought after comics on the circuit and has earned the respect of many of his peers as being a very funny man having a repertoire that is suitable for all manner of functions.

Terry Cotta is one of the few comedians who don't actually remind me of anyone else. This could be the biggest selling point for a young man who gave us a hilarious skit on regional voices and an inspired sketch on singers accents, during which Tom Jones and Marti Pellow were lampooned. Later on it was speculated how George Formby would sound singing the songs of Meatloaf. Great fun.

Hello Terry, It was great to watch you work when I caught you at the Viking in October. As you know, I've been in comedy since 1973 but I can honestly say that I have never witnessed such sustained laughter, for so long, by so many people as I did that night. You had every age group in hysterics from the moment you came on, to the time you went off - 2 hours later. As so many of them said when they came to see you in the bar afterwards: "BRILLIANT." And how right they were.

Comedian Terry Cotta is one of unsung heroes of UK comedy. Apparently too mainstream for comedy clubs, which these days seems to preclude any chance of telly exposure, this is one very funny and original stand-up. Comedy styles change, but I believe Cotta would score heavily on the small screen.
