Keith Donnelly

In no particular order, Keith has been described as ‘a superbly original stand-up’, ‘a great singer-songwriter’, ‘a fine guitarist’, ‘a stunning storyteller’, ‘the cleanest comic I’ve ever seen’. Whatever guise he appears in, Keith guarantees great music, compelling stories and laugh-out loud humour. Keith will be performing solo on Saturday night in Marquee 2 and with Flossie Malavialle on Sunday evening.

In his solo projects in the early nineties – Keith’s comedy genius has been allowed to flourish. He has written substantial live Stand-Up routines and TV material for the likes of Phil Cool and Jasper Carrott, as well as having written for TV companies such as Celador (the ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’ people) and Ragdoll (the ‘Tellytubbies’ people).

In the last ten years Keith has played at literally hundreds of festivals, colleges and universities, arts centres and theatres, comedy clubs, etc. etc. in the UK and worldwide, as well as being widely in demand for After-Dinner Speaking and Corporate Events. He also script-writes light-hearted speeches for corporate events.

He also runs Storytelling and Music and Song workshops (as well as his now famous annual New Year’s Eve Party!!!) at Stratford YHA and works as often as his schedule allows with nursery and primary schools across the country bringing live music and story to preschool children.
