A life member of The Actors Studio, Terry was a regular on the soap operas, The Secret Storm and The Doctors. In 1978, he starred on the short-lived sitcom The Roller Girls. It was during the 1970s and early 1980s that Kiser became a familiar face on episodic television, most notably ABC-TV's Three's Company, The Love Boat, Night Court and The Golden Girls. One of his more memorable roles was on the NBC-TV drama Hill Street Blues, where he played comedian Vic Hitler (aka, Vic the Narcoleptic Comic). He was also a cast member on the syndicated sketch comedy show Off the Wall, as well as part of the ensemble on Carol Burnett's Carol and Company which aired on NBC-TV in 1990.
His many film appearances include Six Pack, Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, Mannequin Two: On the Move and Sideout. In the 1990s, he appeared on CBS-TV's Walker, Texas Ranger, NBC's The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, ABC-TV's Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and Will & Grace.
