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 it.
With a string of live appearances, a spot on Rove [Live] (which they liked so much that she scored a writing job on the show) and a regular gig on the Triple J Breakfast show Terri is definitely on the way up. Which means that she won't need to see that psychologist any time soon.
