Terry Hollas brings his impeccable comedic timing to stages all over Canada and into the U.S. in a variety of venues. For 15 years comedian Terry Hollas has been performing comedy for audiences everywhere:
Experience: Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Terry later moved to Vancouver where he enrolled in broadcasting school.His radio career would take him to small stations in BC such as; Salmon Arm, Revelstoke and CKGR Golden. These remote areas and small towns were not only great for building experience, they offered a great place to hide from his student loan payments.Terry’s next stop was Country 800 Moose Jaw where he got the chance to meet many country signing sensations such as: Tanya Tucker, Billy Ray Cyrus, Pam Tillis and some guy named ‘Garth’. In the fall of 1996, while working the Afternoon Drive at SUN FM, he learned that a makeshift comedy club across town called Dave’s Comedy Saloon, was in need of someone to host weekends.
After years of working on the air in various small towns throughout western Canada, Terry Hollas has made a seamless transformation from a sit-down disc jockey to a stand up comedian. “Radio is what I call ‘The Wizard Of Oz Syndrome’, says Terry Hollas. It is some guy hiding behind a curtain, or in this case, some small room in a building somewhere in a city, or town, trying to sound like a god. No one knows what he looks like and when they do, they think…”there is no god!” Ironically, those same towns where he once worked radio, he now performs comedy.
Terry has also opened for Canadian comedian Brent Butt from CTV’s “Corner Gas” and has shared the stage with other Canadian favorites such as “The Guess Who” and “Maclean & Maclean”. In addition, he has travelled to many parts of the world such as Japan, Thailand, England, and Ireland. Terry now lives in Calgary, Alberta performing in front of thousands of people each year for corporate, private events including fundraisers and company functions.
Performance Style: The best way to describe this Winnipegger’s show is “Clean and Clever” with a wide range of topics such as “Wing Night:”, “My Dad’s Driving”, and “Today’s Technology”. He delivers a clean style of comedy that is funny without the profanity.
