Bronx-born Gerald Kelly has been the class clown since childhood. He used to get on his school’s PA and impersonate teachers, sometimes even calling fire drills to try to get out of school.
Though Kelly played football, basketball and boxed in high school, comedy was his true calling. Fortunately, it paid off for him. He’s appeared on all the comedy shows you can think of – and then some.
Def Comedy Jam, Comedy Central, Showtime at the Apollo, BET’s Comicview and Comedy Central. Kelly’s also released several DVD’s including Comedy In the Hood and his most recent Gerald Kelly on Broadway.
His motto: “Laughter is healing for the soul, and I have been blessed with that gift to bring some joy and some humor to the everyday situations that people go through.”
