Kelly Bachman is a writer, director, producer and stand-up comedian from North Carolina—currently based in New York.
As a writer-director, Kelly’s debut short, BOOBS, premiered at LA Shorts International Film Festival in 2017. If you enjoy her coming of age comedy, ask about the feature script—or any number of other feature and pilot scripts she has ready for you to read! Kelly’s other various sketches and shorts have played comedy festivals including Sketchfest and have been featured in publications such as Huffington Post.
As a comedy producer, Kelly was recently interviewed by Elle Magazine to discuss her latest production, Rape Jokes by Survivors. She writes and produces a live-streamed, sketch variety show, Sofa Kingdom (hour long episodes of dumb fun available on Facebook live now!) and performs stand-up comedy around New York City. Kelly also co-hosts Stoked Comedy the first Thursday of every month at Mad Tropical in Brooklyn.
Additionally, Kelly is a founder of two film organizations, "Women Independent Producers", a network of women producers, and "Curve Filmmakers," a collective of budding filmmakers. Kelly starts so many film collectives, No Film School asked her to write about it!
When Kelly is not making independent films or producing comedy, she is usually supporting other filmmakers. Kelly has been working in New York as a freelance film producer, production coordinator, researcher and crowdfunding/marketing coordinator for five years, and is currently full-time at Fork Films.
Oh, and Kelly now also moonlights as singer-songwriter and guitarist in a band called Boys Drool! They perform around New York.
