Comedian and impressionist who starred as Martin Hurdle in Channel 4’s The Mimic, having previously appeared in The Morgana Show and Very Important People.
Terry Mynott began mimicking Frank Spencer as a child and has now built up hundreds of impressions to include movie stars such as Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Morgan Freeman and TV personalities like Louis Walsh, David Attenborough and Alan Carr.
He then moved onto the stand-up circuit as an impressionist, before being spotted by Russell Brand’s agent and getting his television break on the Channel 4 sketch comedy series The Morgana Show (with Morgana Robinson).
In 2006 Terry worked with animator Scott Mitchell to create Star Street, a comedy animation series spoofing Star Wars for the website Comedy Box, a subsidiary of WarnerMusic and started by QI creator John Lloyd. The show was one of the most successful on the website and gave Terry a chance to showcase his voice over talent. Subsequently, he was commissioned to create an animation special for QI‘s first DVD release.
In 2008 Terry provided the voice over for a MySpace comedy special produced by Paul McCartney & animated by Geoff Dunbar.
He was one of the main impressionists on Very Important People and also provided pre-production impressions of David Attenborough and Jean-Claude Van Damme prior to the original artists doing their own voice overs.
In 2013 Terry Mynott played the lead role of Martin in The Mimic, a British television series shown on Channel 4. The series centers on the fortunes of Martin Hurdle, an everyday maintenance man with an uncanny ability to mimic voices.
