Telephone Voice: Kelly Convey

If you had met 15-year-old Kelly Convey, a chav from Chatham with the jewellery and temperament of a pirate, you would’ve never imagined that 15 years later she’d be a high-flying executive.

From a long career in TV to training to be a sommelier, Kelly had perfected the art of acting and sounding as posh as the wines she was now 'tasting' for a living. Unfortunately, Kelly's approach to trying wine was guzzling and it only took a few wines for the posh facade to fall away and her inner chav to come out. Needless to say, she was fired quicker than her mate Tracey can neck a bottle of Lambrini (and that’s quick).

Kelly had come so far, going from Chatham to Chateau Latour in a small number of years and then – inevitably – falling straight back on her arse again. Yet wine’s loss is comedy’s gain, because now, since getting fired, Kelly threw herself into the world of standup and now's her chance to tell the world all about it. Comedy truly was Kelly's calling, and it turns out, her inner chav was the reason she found it!
