Join Award-Winning Broadcaster, Comedian and WORD host Terry Christian as we celebrate – with the aid of some amazing clips and a no holds barred Q&A – the 30th Anniversary of this iconic and quintessentially 90s ground breaking and controversial TV show. Relive the 90s! Relive The Word!
Going on air in August 1990, The Word both revolutionised youth TV and predated reality TV by many years. Deliberately aiming to achieve something new and exciting, The Word pushed at the conventional boundaries of broadcasting to court controversy and outrage the Establishment.
Combining a unique mix of cutting-edge musicians like Nirvana, Oasis and Snoop Dogg, irreverent and anarchic interviews of A-lister guests like Whitney Houston, Dave Chappelle, Bill Hicks, Rikki Lake and Oliver Reed, The Word soon became loved by its target audience and loathed by the press in equal measure.
Terry has appeared on TV comedy shows including 8 out of 10 cats , Would I Lie To You, The Staying In Show, You’ve Been Watching, Have I Got News For You, Room 101 , Fantasy Football , The 11 O’Clock Show, The Late Late Show ( RTE), and most recently on Channel 4's 40th anniversary special broadcast of The Great British Bake Off on Christmas Eve 2022.

'A natural and fantastically self-deprecating stand-up... a welcome reinvention for him and a great evening of laughs for those in the audience.' - Huffington Post
'This hilarious romp through the guilt ridden, and occasionally dark, realmsof life is another brave step for Terry. He brings all the maverick qualities that made him a media bête noire inthe 90s, via C4’s The Word, to deliver an honest, funny and sometimes profound stand-up performance.' - Yorkshire Post
