When Kelly Terranova takes the stage, as he has done in hundreds cities and towns around the world, audiences are treated to a riotous mix of observation and irony. To provide a captivating, yet fast-paced performance, Kelly draws upon the experience gained logging more than a thousand shows as a successful nightclub entertainer (Kelly is affiliated with the prestigious IMPROV and FunnyBone comedy club franchises).With his quick wit and his genuine connection with his audience Kelly is an expert at creating an evening of hilarious entertainment as unique as your company or event. Kelly Terranova is known as a consummate professional who exceeds the expectations of his clients.

Kelly can provide comedy for nearly any purpose or event that you can think of. He offers:


Comedy Club


Kelly is a veteran of thousands of Comedy Club performances. You pick the rating(G, PG, PG13, R), sit back and enjoy.




"Tailored" WorryFree Comedy


Once you have booked Kelly, you will receive a questionnaire, which will form the basis of the customized material that Kelly will construct- expressly for your group and your event. Further, Kelly will use the jargon of your field or industry to hilarious comic effect.




Standard WorryFree Comedy


Maybe your corporate event doesn't really call for comedy about the job. You just want the audience to have fun! Kelly is a veteran of hundreds of performances in Comedy Clubs, Colleges and Corporate Events of all descriptions. He has hours of appropriate, original material from which to draw.




Humorous Keynotes:

**Worry Is Today's Mice Nibbling On Tomorrow's Cheese

**Why Your Office Should Be Like "The Office"

**The Department of Health and HUMOR Services (for medical professionals)




Event Emcee (MC)


Kelly "makes it look easy", but it's really the years of experience in hosting hundreds of live events that enable him to create an upbeat fun atmosphere and deliver the material that you have scripted or outlined.



Terranova's Top Ten


This is a show that Kelly has performed on an informal basis for years.
He would often arrive early for a show and "hang out" in the back of the hall, watching the speaker or two before him. He did it just to get the feel of the crowd or maybe catch a bit of their jargon or corporate culture. He would use this material extemporaneous in his presentation to hilarious comic effect. Often, it was the client's favorite part of the show. Now he has decided to offer this "Wrap-up" either as a standalone piece, or in addition to emcee duties.
Here's how it works:
Kelly sits in on your presentations and listens to each and every presentation. He notes the audience reaction, what works, what doesn't and how concepts are received. Then he constructs a monologue based on the events that have taken place in the room that day. That's right! It's about you...
"The Top Ten Things We Learned Here Today."
If it is a single day affair, have Kelly perform at the closing meeting. If it is a multi-day meeting, have Kelly speak each day after lunch.
Here's the magic of this presentation:
As audiences hear a humorous recap of the day's speakers, messages and ideas, these concepts are cemented in their minds. Not just the comedic monologue, but the serious points that you want instilled. Further, audiences are having fun and look forward to Kelly next spot. We have found that having Kelly on board as meeting partner improves attendance and concept retention.

Kelly Terranova was absolutely the “icing on the cake” at our event! Everyone present laughed the entire time! His professionalism was exemplary. Prior to our event, Kelly gathered information to personalize his comedy routine, additionally, he paid close attention to our company’s presentation and successfully used key points for improv. material; the mark of a highly-skilled entertainer! We were thoroughly impressed at Kelly’s ability to keep his comedy clean, personalized and hysterical. Numerous guests commented on Kelly and how he was great, unexpected, and refreshing! We would definitely hire Kelly again and again, and have already begun to refer.

Kelly performed at our annual Christmas Party and was a huge hit! This is the 4th year we have had entertainment at the party, and everyone agreed that Kelly's comedy routine was the best. The room was filled with laughter. I was hesitant about booking a comedian. What if no one laughed? Well, I shouldn't have worried, because everyone had a great time. I highly recommend Kelly. Very professional and VERY funny!
