Written By: Philip Eno on 01/03/23 at 11:21 am

Kelly Monteith, the US stand-up comic who also had his own UK BBC show, has died at the age of 80.

Monteith's death was announced on Tuesday by The Anglophlile Channel, an LA production company which worked with him in recent years.

He rose to fame in the UK after several appearances on The Des O'Connor Show.

This led to his self-titled BBC series which ran for six series between 1979 and 1984. Monteith suffered a stroke in 2021 and died in Los Angeles on Sunday.
