Meet Kelly Clinton
Las Vegas entertainer Kelly Clinton may be best described as "a kaleidoscope of talent." No matter which performing direction she turns — singer, actress, comedienne, impressionist, television personality, MC, or events host — her charismatic rays always shine through.
Clinton, Entertainer of the Year for 2015, was the headliner for 8 years at the exclusive Las Vegas "Stirling Club at Turnberry Towers" where she also served as entertainment director. Being an "entertainers' entertainer", Clinton drew many of Las Vegas headliners and performers to her shows. Saturday nights often turned into old Vegas-style jam sessions with Clinton sharing her stage with the likes of Bill Medley, Jack Jones, Clint Holmes, The Scintas, Gordie Brown, Mary Wilson and other Strip entertainers.
Those fortunate enough to see Clinton will get to know the Las Vegas veteran performer. Growing up a big fan of Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball, Clinton's show is an eclectic presentation of song, comedy, dance and characters.
Everybody has a story. "Freckled For Life" is mine, hopefully people will get to know a little bit about me" says Clinton. "I always identified with Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball in their approach to comedy. They had no problem glamming down or doing something silly for the sake of the sketch. I’ve always gone for the humor, it started with mimicking family members and going for a laugh."
"The New Jersey-born performer premiered her one-woman show at the Suncoast in Las Vegas. More recently she has performed the show to critical acclaim at both the popular Metropolitan Room and the venerable Cafe’ Carlyle in New York City. Her celebrity nights at the Bootlegger Bistro along with her many appearances in show rooms and hot spots in Las Vegas have made her one of the city’s most respected entertainers.
Clinton's television credits include "Vegas Live" alongside Sheena Easton and Clint Holmes. She was a winner on ABC's "America's Funniest People. She served as a celebrity interviewer on "Entertainment Las Vegas Style”, and appeared on numerous national television shows with Wayne Newton and Engelbert Humperdinck, who Kelly shared the stage with in Las Vegas and all over the country. Her Theater credits include Sister Mary Amnesia in the hit show "Nunsense" at the Las Vegas Hilton.
Her company, Kelly Clinton Productions creates shows such as the long running hit “Shades of Sinatra” and also coordinates special events and promotes talent. She recently became the permanent host of "Talktails", an exciting online show in which she interviews and interacts with some of entertainment's most interesting celebrities.
In 2010 Clinton received the prestigious Bella Award. In 2011 and 2012 Broadwayworld.com nominated her as Best “Comedic Actress”. Kelly has enjoyed being a part of the “Circle of Red” and working with The Arthritis Foundation as well as many other charitable organizations. One of her greatest passions is mentoring young entertainers.
