About Terry-Thomas (1911 – 1990)
Terry-Thomas was born on July 14, 1911, in Finchley, London, England. On January 8, 1990, Terry-Thomas passed away in Godalming, Surrey, England, from Parkinson's disease.

His birth name was Thomas Terry Hoar Stevens.

Terry-Thomas' trade marks are and will always be the gap between top teeth. He also is famous for the catch-phrases; "You're an absolute shower," and "Good Show."

The gap in his upper teeth is so famous that in British medicine, his gap has been given its own medical term; "The Terry-Thomas Sign," which refers to the gap between the scaphoid and lunate bones (scapho-lunate disassociation) on x-rays.

In the late 1940s, Terry-Thomas became a popular stand-up comic. He changed his professional name from Thomas-Terry after repeatedly being asked if he was related to stage legend, Ellen Terry.

In 1964, Terry-Thomas played the character of "Bertie Wooster" in two radio plays: Indian Summer of an Uncle and Jeeves Takes Charge. Terry-Thomas's autobiography, Filling the Gap, was published in 1959.

In 1966, Thomas was about to co-star in a movie called Easy Come, Easy Go with Jan Berry and Dean Torrence in the leading roles. Unfortunately, due to a car wreck that happened during production, in which Jan Berry suffered severe brain damage and paralysis, the film was cancelled.
