Kelly Lee Williams is a 20+ year comedy, acting, and singing veteran and a 5+ year U.S. Army veteran. His first stage role was Sweets Crane in No Place to Be Somebody in Ft. Drum, New York in 1992.

After watching The Matrix in 1999, Kelly quit his job as an IT professional in Chicago and became a full-time entertainer, hitting the comedy stage and working for the Chicago Bulls as an IncrediBull from ‘01-‘08.

He moved to Anchorage, AK in ‘09 and played MacBeth (Voodoo MacBeth), Wadsworth (Clue), Officer James Bailey (Superior Donuts), The Creation (Rocky Horror Show), Tito Merelli (Lend Me a Tenor) as well as Elvis, President Obama, and Johnny Cash (Whale Fat Follies). Kelly also had roles in the only two major motion pictures filmed entirely in Alaska: Big Miracle (Producer #2) and The Frozen Ground (50 Cent’s stunt double).

Kelly moved back to Chicago in 2018 and found a role as Captain Beatty in Fahrenheit 451, screen time in Chicago Fire (NBC), as well as placing second in an American Idol-style contest (The One).

In 2019, Kelly moved to Las Vegas where he was the opening DJ for the second ever Cat’s Meow Karaoke Bar. In 2020, he played a man possessed by Sammy Davis Jr in the sold-out run of The Rat Pack Lounge at Super Summer Theatre off the Strip. In 2021, he played dual roles of Brabantio and Montano in a production of Othello on the Baobob Stage in the Las Vegas Town Square. In 2022, he sang and danced in a Motown tribute show in Pigeon Forge, TN (Soul of Motown). When that ended, Kelly drove to Los Angeles in September and found screen time in Abbott Elementary (ABC), Winning Time (HBO), Bosch Legacy (Amazon) and played Dr. Wallace LOVELIPS in a National Lampoon skit for a viral promotion called Poison Pill. Kelly finds himself back in Las Vegas playing Wining Boy in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play (The Piano Lesson) and could not be happier.
