We ate beforehand at Thai Aroma a couple blocks away (don't recommend), but the food and drinks are competitively priced inside the venue. Just make sure you get there a little bit early and ask for a table in front of you.

Description

Robert Kelly has overcome many hardships in his life, all of which have made him the actor/comedian he is today. From his early days as a kid growing up in Boston in and out of Juvenile Hall, Kelly’s unique, honest take on his own life and his relationships make his comedy clever, abrasive, funny, and yet refreshingly vulnerable.

He has been winning over audiences for the last 18 years. In addition to clubs and colleges nationwide, Kelly has traveled across the country in the _Tourgasm Live _tour with Dane Cook and Gary Gulman. He is a regular on the Opie and Anthony radio show and has performed at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal (2008 and 2010). He has also appeared at the South Beach Comedy Festival, HBO’s Comedy Festival (Las Vegas), and the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival (Aspen 2007). In 2009, he performed for over 1 million people in 80 arenas across the country as a feature on Dane Cook’s_ Isolated Incident Tour. _

His extensive TV comedy credits include the Comedy Central specials Comics Anonymous and Comedy Central Presents Robert Kelly, HBO’s Tourgasm, Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC), _Premium Blend _(Comedy Central), Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn (Comedy Central), _The Carson Daly Show _(NBC), Awesomely Oversexed (VH1) and MTV’s _The Jim Breuer Show. _

Kelly’s acting credits include portraying Louie CK’s brother Robbie on _Louie , Law & Order _(NBC), _Law & Order: Special Victims Unit _(NBC), Law & Order: Criminal Intent (NBC) and The Job (ABC).

His movie credits include _Ghost Town, What Doesn’t Kill You, Children of Invention, Bachelor No. 2 _and Good Luck Chuck. He also just finished producing and starring in his first short film, Shooting Angles.

Kelly currently lives in New York City with his wife and their two dogs.
