For a man who bills himself as "The World's Only Vegetarian NASCAR Fan", this comedian seems to have energy that you would think could only come from animal protein. When Kelly Terranova takes the stage, as he has done in more than 500 venues nationwide, audiences are taken on an energetic and slightly cynical look at America's pop culture icons...from our fascination with figure skating to NASCAR racing to riverboat gambling.
A former radio talk show host, Terranova's material is often culled from the day's headlines...there's no time for this "routine" to get routine. Terranova is known as a skilled comedian who features playful audience interaction, making each show unique.
Kelly is featured on CMT’s hilarious program, CMT’s Comedy Stage. He was a finalist in both the Funny Bone Comedy Club's World Series of Comedy and Carnival Cruise Line's Las Vegas Comedy Challenge. Kelly has appeared with Michael Bolton, The Doobie Brothers, Jim Breuer, Brett Butler and Tim Wilson.
Terranova resides in Annapolis, MD, along with his saintly wife and four (count ‘em!) four children.
Just back from the Carnival VISTA and wanted to share a recent development and opportunity.
For nearly five years, the major part of my work year has been spent
in the Caribbean. As I travel port to port, I’ve been able to witness
the hard work and enjoy the warm hospitality of those who rely on
tourism for their living. In the places that I visit often, I have
come to know many of these folks personally. Of course, my heart was
heavy as news poured in the past few weeks regarding the destruction
endured by so many of those areas.
In preparing to write this post I looked back over the my previous blog entries to familiarize myself with the narrative that I've set forth. Got a small reality check there. It seems that I, in a burst of misguided artistic and workman-like fervor, disclosed that my goal was to post once a week! Seems a substantial, but not overly-ambitious goal. I gave myself this once a week challenge on March 30th! Lets see. Roughly 26 weeks have passed since that declaration. Now taking a look at my posts the grand total is 3! By all rights it’s actually two...as one of those 3 was just a slap-dash preview of coming attractions. Two posts in 26 weeks.. On that pace it’ll be the middle of March 2018 before you have access to the amount of content that you SHOULD have sitting in your browser right now. I figure if I flog myself here, making a big enough deal out of my paucity of effort, I'll shame myself into reforming my ways. But I digress...
“You’re a comedian! That’s exciting. You know, I’ve always wondered...”
Happens all the time. On airplanes, in doctor’s offices, and aboard cruise ships (where I have performed for huge chunks of the last four years).
Do I sometimes bring it up “nonchalantly-on-purpose”? Sure. I’m only human.
Yeah! It's been a while, but I had to learn a lot of new words to express myself. Exciting and humorous musings on the way. #FakeNews #Sad #FailingComedian
So, why a blog? Ah, the not-at-all eternal question.
When deciding to revamp my website for the 4th time (yes this is my 4.0 update...go in the Wayback Machine some time to version 1.0, 2.0 and most recently 3.0 ...ugh), I knew that it needed to be, let’s say, a little more dynamic. Not just a book report of a site, but something that changes...new information, aka “content”, that appears regularly (aye, there’s the rub) to DRIVE traffic to my site. (that's a lot of SEO type stuff in there...pay no mind, please keep reading.)
