Gerald Kelly was born in the Bronx, New York, the eldest of four and raised by a single mom. As a youngster, his point of view about life made him a class favorite. Kelly would often captivate the students and teachers by telling stories, spontaneously poking fun at anyone who dared to challenge his comic ability. He even impersonated teachers' voices on the P.A. "This is a fire drill!!" All hell would break loose and he'd disappear into the school crowd without getting caught. Actually, he would be the first to stand near his teacher outside the school, "Are they going to send us home? Are we going to be safe?" One of his teachers looked down at him one day and said, "Young man, you should be a comedian."
Today Gerald has a multidimensional career. He's been on stage in Japan, Puerto Rico and all the major clubs across the United States. He's appeared on TV on HBO's Def Comedy Jam, Showtime at the Apollo, Conan O'Brien, and BET Comic View. His movies include, "The Other Brother" and "Death of a Dynasty." His DVD "Comedy In The Hood," has been a big seller. He's also been on Radio 107.5 WBLS as a morning host and presently resides with the co-host-hat in Hartford, Connecticut at WZMX. His passion is for his kids, Isiah and Yazmine, his wife, Charaya, who he married October 12, 2002, his comedy, sports and Robin Williams.
In his life, he's struggled to survive; he's been through divorce, life and death, and he's always taken tragic situations and put them into comedy. Gerald is now living in California and is on radio three times a week on WZMX via California where he resides with his family.
