A few years ago, and against my better judgement, I started watching Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, a sitcom about an old rock band reuniting and starring Denis Leary. It turned out to be a fun if silly bingeable show, in no small part thanks to stand-up comic Robert Kelly. Kelly played the band’s sensitive drummer-turned EDM DJ-turned playwright. That’s some range! In his stand-up, Kelly is a joyfully foulmouthed everyman who turns his thoughts on eating healthy, overweight riot police and late flights into comedy gold that’s made him a stagemate of folks like Jim Norton, the late Patrice O’Neal, and as a great talk show guest when he’s not hosting his own podcast You Know What Dude?
