Audible has announced a two-performance run of Billy Kelly: This Is a Family Show! to take place on Saturday, October 5, at the Minetta Lane Theatre. Both performances will be recorded and released as an Audible Original production later this year.

This Is a Family Show is described as "a stand-up comedy experience parents and kids can enjoy together. It's comedy toast with the crust cut off; if the crust was all that pesky talk about dating, politics, the DMV, money, and the Department of Motor Vehicles so common in today's stand-up. The toast part? That is all nutritious jokes about nocturnal animals, microwaves, Ben Franklin and people throwing turtles. You'll laugh, your kids will laugh, and the turtles are imaginary so don't worry about them. Everybody wins!"

Over the course of his 20-year career, Grammy-nominated family entertainer Billy Kelly has opened for President Barack Obama, duetted with Davy Jones of the Monkees, and released a critically acclaimed family-friendly stand-up comedy album — in that order. Billy loves making people laugh and doesn't see why kids can't be in on the fun.
