Kelly Petronis is a comedian based in Athens, GA. In 2015 Kelly founded the underground comedy series Krakin Jokes, which was the inspiration for and subject of the feature-length documentary Athens Rising. He currently acts as creative director for Flying Squid Comedy where he produces 100+ shows a year and teaches improv and standup comedy. An independent filmmaker, improviser, and serial podcaster, Kelly is one part self-produced punk rock comedian, one part sweater-wearing linguist philosopher. He has performed with the likes of Joe Zimmerman, Adam Newman, and Allen Strickland Williams for audiences of all stripes and ages with his comedy that is logic-bending, poetic, and tantalizingly dry.
