Comedians Kelly Terranova

“If it’s not funny for everyone, it’s not funny.” – Kelly Terranova

Kelly Terranova has been writing and performing standup comedy for more than two decades… and in his spare time, he enjoys writing about himself in the third person.

Kelly is a natural and energetic storyteller with a flair for the absurd and unexpected. At the same time, he treats his audience with a care and respect formerly reserved for the clergy, or Instagram influencers.

Kelly’s diverse career path as a radio talk show host, a production assistant at Walt Disney Feature Animation, and a vacuum cleaner salesman, along with an eighth-grade realization that comedy was his “destiny” (14 year old Kelly was very dramatic) led him to a comedic voice that is unique, engaging, and hilarious.

Having performed nearly 10,000 shows, Kelly has nailed the formula for entertaining audiences large and small, while never straying from his core comedic belief: “If it’s not funny for everyone, it’s not funny.”

Kelly has been featured on CMT’s Comedy Stage, FOX Sports and the DryBar Comedy Network. He was a finalist in both the Funny Bone Comedy Club’s World Series of Comedy and the CCL Las Vegas Carnival Comedy Challenge. Kelly has appeared with Michael Bolton, Joan Rivers, Kevin Nealon, The Doobie Brothers, Brett Butler and Mahatma Gandhi (just wanted to see if you were still reading).
