Her credits include co-devising and producing Dr Brown’s C4 sketch show, and developing and producing BAFTA nominated Chewing Gum for E4 alongside Michaela Coel.

Joining Objective Fiction in November 2015 as Development Producer, she was named Head of Development in June 2017. In her time at Objective Kelly has developed, produced and latterly executive produced Mae Martin and Joe Hampson’s multi-award-winning show Feel Good. She has also produced the Ryan Shelton fronted Blaps How to Life for Channel 4; Emma Sidi’s Last Resort for Sky, and most recently BBC Three shorts Small Doses, created by comedian Helen Bauer.

During Kelly’s early years in comedy she was a writer and performer on the London circuit, and ran industry renowned live comedy nights alongside some of the most exciting up and coming talent in the UK.
