An ‘in-your’face and reassuringly confident’ (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’ (Chortle) that is refreshing and relatable. Voted by The Metro as ‘1 of 9 Hilarious Women to Look Out for in 2017’, Kelly Convey is no doubt, one to watch. Kelly has no filter when it comes to her opinions on sex and society, sharing in her hilarious wholehearted performance that will make you feel like you’ve known her for years. With a face like butter wouldn’t melt and a mouth like a white can man, Kelly bring a side splitting and strangely refreshing mix of feminine and ladette style to subjects women rarely talk about in public. < em>“Talented Newcomer” – Time Out “
