|Terry Gauci started at Chiltern Radio at the tender age of 14 as a technical operator, helping out during school holidays and weekends, eventually leading to permanent weekends. The trust in this young lad was such that Programme Controller, Paul Robinson, issued him with his own set of keys, and he used to drive the desk for any recorded shows, and then set the alarm!Following an interview as a trainee Tax Inspector, Terry auditioned the same week for Warner Holidays, to become one of their Teamstars. Terry was offered both jobs but chose to pay tax rather than collect it.Terry worked for Warner, Haven & Bourne Leisure over the next four years and gained a huge amount of entertainment experience and knowledge whilst at the same time developing his talents towards his own comedy act.
From 1994 to 1999, Terry’s work varied immensely. He had several radio jobs from community to local radio, even interviewing the then Prime Minister Mr John Major on his lunchtime show in Huntingdonshire. As well as radio, Terry enjoyed several TV commitments, from presenting and writing on a comedy show called The Bottom Line, to appearing as a comedian on Stand Up Live and many small acting roles in various dramas.
During this time, Terry started to write his own entertainment column for his local newspaper The Hunts Post, this was well received by the local community and involved Terry meeting several small groups with a variety of interests and at the same time allowed him to interview some star names in showbusiness, as and when they appeared in the local area.
2000 saw the dawning of the new Millennium and a new opportunity for Terry when he became one third of the Brother Lees comedy showband. Eighteen months later the only original member left in the group, Tony, took early retirement from the industry, and Terry decided to return to a solo comedy career.
From then until the present day Terry has entertained audiences with his fast-paced show, packed with one-liners, observations and impressions. Add to this, his ability to ad-lib with the audience’s reactions makes for a rather enjoyable and unpredictable comedy show.
And finally!!..we forgot to mention, Terry has appeared in several pantomimes, BBC’s Generation Game, supported in Theatres for Jim Davidson & Mick Miller, appeared on the A-Z Of Bad Boys (Bravo), Hosted his own breakfast show on Star Fen & Cambridge (UKRD), toured Gran Canaria & Spain with his comedy show, worked as an Entertainment Agent (Bedfordshire), warmed audiences up for TV Studios, Stadiums and Theatres.
