Robert Kelly (born 1970) is an American stand-up comedian from Boston, Massachusetts. He frequently performs at the Comedy Cellar. Robert Kelly often appears on The Opie and Anthony Show on CBS Radio & XM Satellite Radio, and has also appeared on Last Call with Carson Daly, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, and Premium Blend.

In 2003, Bob Kelly was voted the Breakthrough Performer of the Year on CringeHumor.net. [http://www.cringehumor.net/robert_kelly/]

In 2005, Kelly toured with comedians Dane Cook, Gary Gulman, and Jay Davis on the cross-country tour entitled "Tourgasm". After tearing (ACL) and straining (MCL) ligaments in his knee (which led to a crying display that has been often-ridiculed on radio programs such as "The Opie & Anthony Show"), he managed to finish the tour which began airing on HBO as a comedy documentary series in June 2006.

In 2005 and 2006, Bob Kelly accompanied fellow comedian Colin Quinn to Iraq, where they each performed stand-up for American troops stationed in Baghdad. Kelly claimed on the Opie and Anthony Show, that while there he saw a werewolf.Fact|date=September 2008 He is known for his very weak stomach, and often suddenly gags or vomits when appearing on the Opie and Anthony show. One of his non-comedy ventures is to hunt for treasure in Guatemala, where he visited earlier in 2008.

Robert Kelly will be a part of New Jersey's Bamboozle Festival this year as part of the "Pass the Mic Comedy Tour" on Sunday March 6th, 2007. [http://www.thebamboozle.com]
