Kelly Brosnan was born in Chicago and raised by an Italian Mother and Irish Father -- a great combo....until the divorce.  Her parents instilled in her an appreciation for music and the arts.

After a short stint at DePaul University School of Music, she made her singing debut at the Won Kow Gourmet Dragon Restaurant & Lounge, getting paid with all the egg foo yung she could eat.  Kelly has appeared in cabaret performances at Boombala Nightclub and The Royal George Theatre.

In her day job at Leo Burnett Advertising, Kelly assisted copywriters and art directors with creative ideas for commercials and expense accounts.

With her freelance work as a co-writer and host of a local television pilot, Kelly has shared her unending enthusiasm for Chicago's rich cultural landscape. Kelly's Show & Tell takes a peek behind-the-curtain at writers, artists, performers and stylemakers -- with an occasional riff on Chicago current events.
