I've been selected to go out to Australia next year by Mary Tobin Presents to perform in a 'Best of the Edinburgh Fest' showcase at both the Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe Festivals.

I Closed 'Dave Gorman's Screen Guild' at Hoxton Halls in London in June 2018

I was selected to do the Bound & Gagged showcase show 'AAA Stand Up Late' for the full run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 (Pleasance Courtyard).

I Co-Hosted the 'Stephen K Amos Talk Show' , along side Stephen himself, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 (Gilded Balloon) & appeared as a guest on the talk show in 2015 and 2018.

I performed at the legendary comedy night 'LATE N LIVE' at the Gilded Balloon (Debating Hall) at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015 & 2017 and late night show 'SPANK!' in 2016.

I recorded a stand-up set that was then broadcasted on 'BBC Radio 4 Extra'.

I took a successful 2 hander show up to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017 in which I performed 30 minutes every night for the full run of the festival and received great responses from the people that came both face-to-face and on social media.

My credits include when I was 15 I won 'Best Joke' in a Mock the week competition and also won 'Best gag' for a online competition in 2011 for Teenage Cancer Trust's comedy benefit night at the Royal Albert Hall (both of these were before I started doing stand up).

Some of the acts I've performed with, and along side, include; Jack Whitehall, Reginald D Hunter, Omid Djalili, Russell Kane, Dave Gorman, Paul Chowdhry, Tim Vine, Tom Stade, Sara Pascoe, Seann Walsh, Andy Parsons, Henning Wehn, Sam Simmons, Daniel Sloss, Jo Caulfield, Paul Foot, John Kearns, Nathan Caton, Nish Kumar and Tom Allen.

Quotes:

"Destined to be absolutely huge. Charming and disarming, he held the audience in the palm of his hand and made them helpless with laughter. He puts wit and polish centre stage. " - Julia Chamberlain

"Opened for me on tour, a superb act to follow. Blown away by his funny, they loved him. Catch him now, he's got it." - Stephen K Amos

"Hilarious young comic...definitely one to watch" - The Argus

"Wins the audience over immediately with a combination of great material and confidence" - Glee Club

"Kelsey has pitch perfect delivery and a keen sense of what's funny that many older and more experienced comedians would kill for, and he's damned good with hecklers too." - David Mulholland, Soho Comedy Club

"Definitely one to watch, an extremely strong 10 and easily capable with a well put together set. He's only 20 and very accomplished with excellent timing and a very natural presence. Very accessible. Room were on board with him throughout, audience really liked him." - The Stand Comedy Club

"Having booked Kelsey for paid work, he's never failed to impress. He has the charisma, confidence and material to go a very long way. A notable difference for Kelsey against some of his peers is the positive audience 'buzz' he creates afterwards - a very good sign of someone with great potential. It's often said but Kelsey is definitely 'one to watch'." Ricky Powell, Mock Tudor Comedy & Other clubs booker

"One of the most exciting rising stars of the UK comedy circuit, Kelsey is destined for great things. A young comic with a massive future." - Happy Shark Comedy
