Kelsey De Almeida
At the tender age of 23, Kelsey is one of the youngest working comedians in the UK. In his short time on the comedy scene, he's already supported Stephen K Amos on a whopping four UK Tours, Abandoman on their 2017 UK Tour and will be supporting Russell Kane on his 2019 UK Tour.
He's also been hand picked by Mary Tobin Presents to represent the UK in Australia this year, taking part in their 'Best of the Edinburgh Fest' showcase shows at both the Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2019.
The show has already received a ★★★★½ review in Adelaide saying "Kelsey is a pleasure to watch on stage... I look forward to seeing his career flourish".
He's someone that was spotted early on to be a rising star, after being asked to support Stephen K Amos on Tour just 11 months into starting comedy and also being selected by Bound & Gagged to take part in their showcase of new talent in 'AAA' at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 only 18 months in.
He's a comedian with a completely unique and distinctive voice. Using his stand up to describe what life is like being a young Christian in the modern world - with plenty of laughs along the way!
Described by Julia Chamberlain as "Destined to be absolutely huge" - he's a young man you may just want to look out for..!
Winner: 'Best Newcomer' - Southend Comedy Festival.
