Billy Kelly's “This Is A Family Show!” is a stand-up comedy experience parents and kids can enjoy together. It’s comedy toast with the crust cut off; if the crust was all that pesky talk about dating, politics, the DMV, money, and the Department of Motor Vehicles so common in today’s stand-up. The toast part? That is all nutritious jokes about nocturnal animals, microwaves, Ben Franklin and people throwing turtles. You’ll laugh, your kids will laugh, and the turtles are imaginary so don’t worry about them. Everybody wins! Finally a comedy show where adults and kids can sit side by side laughing together and nobody has to cover anybody else's ears! “An endearingly oddball sense of humor.” — NPR
Over the course of his 20-year career, Grammy-nominated family entertainer Billy Kelly has opened for President Barack Obama, duetted with Davy Jones of The Monkees, and released a critically acclaimed family-friendly stand-up comedy album — in that order. Billy loves making people laugh and doesn’t see why kids can’t be in on the fun.
