Robert Kelly’s comedy is rooted in his early days as a kid growing up in Boston. His dysfunctional family, repeat trips to juvie and his honest take on his own life and relationships make his comedy clever, abrasive and funny, yet refreshingly vulnerable.
Kelly has been winning over audiences for years while touring clubs, colleges and theatres. He was featured on the HBO’s Tourgasm with Dane Cook and has been a highlight at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival for the last four years.
Besides being a fixture on Comedy Central, Robert can be seen recurring as Louie CK’s brother Robbie on the hit series Louie, and has just been cast as a series regular in Denis Leary’s new half-hour comedy series, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, that will debut on FX in the spring of 2015.
Kelly’s has performed on Comics Anonymous, Comedy Central Presents, Premium Blend, Tough Crowd, The Carson Daly Show, The Jim Breuer Show. His acting credits include Louie, Inside Amy Schumer, NYC 22, Ghost Town, The Job, What Doesn’t Kill You, Good Luck Chuck and the upcoming Judd Apatow film Trainwreck starring Amy Schumer.
He recently produced and starred in the short film “Cheat” which debuted at The Tribeca Film Festival. Shortly afterwards Simon and Schuster published a book he wrote based on the film. He currently hosts the top rated podcast “You Know What Dude?” that can be found on iTunes or riotcast.com.
