Kevin Connelly is a highly talented impressionist, comedian and after dinner speaker and star of Dead Ringers.
Born in Middlesborough, Kevin found fame while still at school, mimicking his fellow students & of course his teachers. As his ‘turns’ became more popular, he gained confidence & included a few leading personalities into his repertoire.
It was while he was working as a restaurant manager at his brother-in-law’s hotel near Thirsk, Kevin would entertain the customers at the end of the evening to a small cameo piece. Quite unrehearsed but which certainly delighted the clientele.
It was through this venue that someone asked him to speak at the Yorkshire County Cricket Club dinner & included impressions of many of the clubs sporting personalities. Engagements rolled in & eventually Kevin decided to give up his ‘day’ job & become a professional impressionist.
Kevin is now considered as one of the leading sporting, political & television impressionists. Via the award-winning radio & television programme Dead Ringers, Kevin has become a nationally known personality. His after dinner performances are superb & Kevin has been for many years the No. 1 choice for Testimonial & Benefit Dinners for many of the country’s sporting personalities.
Television credits include; Sports Review of the Year, Des O’Connor, The Full Monty, We’re On Our Way to Wembley, The Sports Show, It’s Not Just Cricket (with Rory Bremner), Saint & Greavsie & The Pavilion End. Kevin has also made several appearances during the Test Match on Test Match Special where his impressions of the commentating team have caused great hilarity amongst those in the commentary box!!
Kevin has an extensive repertoire & as a result of this versatility continues to be in great demand for sporting & corporate events. His impressions are the best on the after dinner circuit – highly recommended for a tremendous evenings entertainment!
