Highlights

Ed has served as spokesperson for scores of Fortune 500 clients including Lincoln, Pepsi, and the US Navy. Recruited from Canada over 25 years ago as a principle Voice Actor for the syndicated American Comedy Network/Universal Comedy Network with United Station NYC. He also continues to be heard every week on The Mitch Albom Show, on WJR, (Also on the book trailer for Albom's "The First Phone Call from Heaven") and hundreds of other radio stations across the globe via syndication. Primarily a Voice Actor specializing in commercials, Ed is also an accomplished film actor. He played Senator Darden opposite Richard Gere, Martin Sheen and Topher Grace in "The Double." (Now on Netflix) Drew Barrymore loved Ed's voice so much she cast him as Ellen Paige's Pageant Emcee in "Whip It," her directorial debut. Recently he narrated a Documentary on white Abolitionist John Brown called "Madman or Martyr" His last animation feature found Ed portraying five different characters. "The Littlest Angel" where he was paired with Ron Perlman is destined to become a children's classic. His most recent stage role was as "Ghost of Jacob Marley" in "A Christmas Carol." The Musical, and involved cable work that had him literally flying more than forty five feet above the stage. New heights are Ed's constant quest as a true "working actor," Ed Kelly has also shared the silver screen with a galaxy of stars including, Sigourney Weaver (Prayers For Bobby)and most recently, Langston Fishburne (Son of Lawrence) for a Luke Jaden film called "Juvies." Ed is a highly acclaimed voice actor, sound match specialist and accomplished impressionist. His hallmark is tremendous versatility. Always looking to expand his repertoire, his newest voices are Donald Trump and Morgan Freeman. For period recreation projects, he also has a host of vintage voices from the late Gary Owens to Don LaFontaine as well.

Experience

I have been the National voice for Lincoln Motor Cars, and scores of other National accounts including Coca Cola, Minute Maid, Chevrolet, KFC, Busch Beer, Future Shop in Canada, Samsung etc. But voice matching is my specialty, as I am an impressionist. If there is an announce style you wish to "ape" or cop from, be it Donald Trump, Bryan Cranston, Gary Owens, Don Lafontaine, or others, I am a master mimic, and parody is my specialty. Lately I get a lot of requests for Donald Trump, Morgan Freeman, Alec Baldwin, Clint Eastwood, Michael Caine,, John Travolta, etc. But if you give me a heads up, I can dial in anyone from the NFL Football's late, great John Facenda to John Madden. It is my gift, and I love to use it. I am a voice actor. Impressions a specialty.
