From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Kevin Connelly was born in Middlesbrough, England. He is an impressionist comedian, and after dinner speaker and is probably most famous for his role on the popular BBC television programme 'Dead Ringers'. He was educated at St Marys RC College, Middlesbrough where he would mimic his fellow students and teachers. Later whilst working in the restaurant business he would entertain his customers with unrehearsed cameo pieces. This lead directly to engagements as an after dinner speaker. Kevin Connelly lives in North Yorkshire. He spends much of his time travelling to London for work with the BBC on Dead Ringers both on radio, and latterly TV. The remainder of his time is spent delivering after dinner speeches using his talent for impersonation - principally sports personalities.
