Billy Kelly Set for Monthly Family Comedy Show at The PIT in 2017
This is Billy Kelly's first comedy album, hence the name. Spoiler alert: it is squeaky clean! This comedy is so darn clean that kids can listen to it, and to prove that point Billy invited kids to the recording of this album... it was kind of nuts.
My First Comedy Album was recorded in front of two different show audiences on June 11, 2016 and edited together to create the ultimate family comedy album. Kids ages 8 & up were in attendance for the first performance; the second performance was adults only with the same jokes told at both shows. Kids laughed and drank juice boxes, adults laughed and drank whatever they wanted. The point is this; people of (nearly) all ages were enjoying live comedy together.
Billy likes to think of this album as comedy toast with the crust cut off; if that crust was made of swear words and jokes about dating. So basically there is none of that stuff - just good clean laughs and absurd fun that people of all ages can enjoy together. Because the world needs more of that sort of thing!
Billy Kelly has been entertaining people with his quirky, funny music since 1996, getting his start in NYC's East Village Anti-Folk scene. Over the course of his 20 year music career Billy Kelly has opened for President Barack Obama, duetted with Davy Jones of The Monkees, and been nominated for a Grammy Award - in that order.
Although comedy has always been part of Billy's act, My First Comedy Album represents the culmination of several years of focused comedy writing and several hundred stand-up performances. With the release of this album, Billy hopes to bring laughs to nice people everywhere.
