Tony Kelly: A New York State of Mind
On this episode, we speak with Tony Kelly, an actor, writer, producer, and comedian. A dynamic talent from Waterford in Ireland he has the type of vision, determination, and drive which has resulted in him being asked to work at creative events on Broadway and beyond. He was recently the lead in Writing Home, an Irish feature film currently touring festivals worldwide.
Tony has several artistic interests and skills and is currently prepping his brand new radio comedy series “Busy Tonight?”, a ten-part series to be funded by the Broadcast Authority of Ireland. His YouTube series "The Hurler" is being adapted and turned into a feature film.
He has co-written a new play called “The UnDocumented” about two Irish guys living illegally in the US, which will be put on stage in 2019.
In this interview, we learn about the observations Tony has made along the way, from working in North America to acting, doing stand up comedy, and being sober for over five years. The conversation also takes an unreserved deep dive into mental health of men here in Ireland.
Tony's onscreen work is mesmerising and he is a true force of nature.
