I am indeed Terry Adlam and I write comedy, therefore I guess I'm a comedy writer.  I write comedy scripts, comedy sketches, comedy plays, comedy books, comedy stories, comedy speeches and anything you can prefix with the word comedy.

I've had numerous sketches on TV, Radio and the Stage both here and there, I've had plays tread the boards round and about, I've had three joke books published now and then and I'm available for work as and when.

I also created and directed 80's cult classic Dick Spanner and I'm going to shut up now so that you can have a wander round my website and see... 


in January, after 26 and a half years, I was made redundant from my day job. Bit of a shock, but also quite exciting as I embark on a new chapter in my career.  I am looking for work on either a freelance, full-time or part-time basis, so please continue to enjoy my website, but if you think, 'Hang about, Terry, with all his experience and enthusiasm could be very useful to me or my company' then please contact me.



Dick Spanner P.I. has been given and wash and brush up and re-released on DVD with some great extras including 'The Case of The Screaming Dame' a brand new two-part animatic!

 My one-act play 'Karaoke Nights' is still available to buy from Lazy Bee Scripts. A recent review said 'This one act play overflows with fine quickfire adult humour which clicks effortlessly into tragedy made all the more startlingly heart-breaking because we have become so close to the well drawn characters and laughed along with them. With inspired use of the karaoke theme this play has us laughing and crying in equal measure.' 'Karaoke Nights' is now available to buy from here.
