Kelsey De Almeida

Winner: Best Newcomer

Southend Comedy Festival

At the age of 24, Kelsey is one of the youngest working comedians in the UK. In his short time on the comedy scene, he’s already supported Stephen K Amos on a whopping FIVE UK Tours, Abandoman on their 2017 UK Tour and supported Russell Kane on his 2019 UK Tour.

He was also hand picked by Mary Tobin Presents to represent the UK in Australia in 2019, taking part in their ‘Best of the Edinburgh Fest’ showcase shows at both the Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

The show received a ★★★★½ review in Adelaide saying “Kelsey is a pleasure to watch on stage… I look forward to seeing his career flourish”.

He’s someone that was spotted early on to be a rising star, after being asked to support Stephen K Amos on Tour just 11 months into starting comedy and also being selected by Bound & Gagged to take part in their showcase of new talent in ‘AAA’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 only 18 months in.

He’s a comedian with a completely unique and distinctive voice. Using his stand up to describe what life is like being a young Christian in the modern world – with plenty of laughs along the way!

Described by Julia Chamberlain as “Destined to be absolutely huge” – he’s a young man you may just want to look out for..!

"Destined to be absolutely huge. Charming and disarming, he held the audience in the palm of his hand and made them helpless with laughter. He puts wit and polish centre stage."
