She watched The Big Gig from far too young an age. Her first stand up spot for a school concert saw her
demoralise the tuckshop ladies. She started going to live gigs from the age of 16. Frankly, if Terri Psiakis
hadn’t gone on to write and perform comedy as an adult, psychologists probably would have had
something to say about her obsessive behaviour.
Terri is a young lady well on her way. She has appeared on Rove [Live], The Glass House,
Spicks and Specksand ABC TV’s Stand Up! She will also be familiar to listeners of national youth
broadcaster Triple J, where she has been a regular contributor over the past 5 years with a weekly spot
on Wil Anderson and Adam Spencer’s Breakfast Show, co-hosting Summer Lunchtimes with Ross Noble,
various shifts as “The T and A Show” with Amy Blackmur and her own weekly segments, “The Psiakis
Files” and “Finishing School”, on Robbie Buck’s Drive Show.
Terri’s flair for broadcasting continued and she now hosts her own Weekend Breakfast Show on Triple M,
named “Toast”, with Justin Hamilton and Charlie Pickering.
Terri’s natural, conversational style has also come in handy on The Comedy Channel when she hosted
backstage interviews for their homegrown show Stand Up! Australia.
Terri has also just had a book commissioned and will be turning Pending Nuptials into the perfect
sensible girls wedding companion book, for release in 2009, and it promises to have not a meringue
fluffy dress in sight!
Based in VIC – travels everywhere.
