Terry Braverman is a recovering stand-up comedian who has appeared on Comedy Central, at the legendary Improv Comedy Club, and opened for Broadway and television star Ben Vereen. Growing weary of hecklers, drunks, and airborne beer bottles, Terry segued into the world of professional speaking in 1992. In addition to finding a better ambiance at speaking and training venues, it was an opportunity for him to expand his role of entertainer to that of “edutainer,” using his comedic talents to convey messages and concrete ideas that help people excel in their personal and professional lives. He is the author of the uplifting book, When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Lighten Up! An amazon.com best seller for 3 consecutive years!
He was just recently interviewed by the New York Times and Inc. Magazine, mentioned in a U.S. News & World Report article, and featured in the L.A. Times, Oakland Tribune, and New Orleans Times-Picayune. He has appeared on over 160 radio and TV programs, including NPR, AP, CBS and USA Radio Networks. He’s been on the Good Day L.A. morning T.V. show, the CBS TV affiliate’s morning show in New Orleans, and the ABC TV affiliate in Asheville, NC.
Terry has also played music since he was 18 years old, and performs with a popular L.A. musical group called “Swingshift,” a boogie-woogie blues band that plays mostly original material.
When he has some free time (which isn’t too often), Terry enjoys volunteering at retirement homes to perform his classic celebrity characters and standard musical favorites for the residents.
