‘1 of 9 Hilarious Women to Look Out For in 2017’ Metro
‘Kelly is a bright and filthy new star.’ Funny Women
Kelly Convey is an 'in-your-face and reassuringly confident' (Marissa Burgess – Chortle) comedian who is not one to mince her words when giving audiences an insight into what modern women really think. While her outspoken and forward-thinking musings may go against the grain, 'there’s a winning authenticity to her material' (Steve Bennett – Chortle) that is refreshing and relatable. This authenticity has led to a whole host of accolades and acknowledgments in her whirlwind rise through the comedy scene. Voted by The Metro as '1 of 9 Hilarious Women to Look Out for in 2017, Kelly is, no doubt, one to watch.
