The Word is Terry Christian – The Naughty Nineties and more!

21 April 2023 @ 19:00 - 23:00

FROM £20

Award-Winning broadcaster, comedian and writer Terry Christian, celebrates the legendary TV show, The Word with a unique one-man comedy show.

With some rarely seen clips and a no-holds-barred Q&A, Terry hosts this stand-up performance that delves into the iconic and quintessentially ‘90s ground-breaking and hugely influential TV show.

Launched in August 1990 on Channel 4, The Word both revolutionised ‘youth TV’ and predated ‘reality TV’ by a decade. With its goal being to create something new and exciting, The Word pushed the conventional boundaries of broadcasting to court controversy and outrage the establishment.

Combining a diverse mix of cutting-edge bands like Nirvana, Oasis and Snoop Dogg, irreverent and anarchic interviews of A-lister guests including Whitney Houston, Dave Chappelle, Bill Hicks, Rikki Lake and Oliver Reed. Plus, stories from the margins of society, and downright bizarre and outrageous studio stunts, The Word soon became loved by its target audience and loathed by the press in equal measure.
