Ben has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s most accomplished programme-makers. His thirty-year experience in the industry has won him multiple BAFTAs and numerous other awards. His hit comedy “Mrs Brown’s Boys” was recently voted the UK’s favourite comedy of the century.
“As a director/producer for Mrs. Browns Boys over the last nine years Ben has been over and above anything I could have expected from him. No ideas are written off without being completely dismantled and for Ben nothing is too much trouble once it improves the outcome. Luckily what I needed to make Mrs. Browns Boys a success, Ben Kellett has in bucket loads. ”
Brendan O’Carroll, creator, writer and star of Mrs Brown’s Boys.
Ben has a multitude of major TV credits ranging from primetime entertainment shows, award ceremonies, drama to sitcom and sketch show.

He works extensively around the world, from the USA to Africa and across Europe. He workshops and lectures at the Cinemagic Festival both in London and Dublin, At the CME annual conference in Susai, and the National Film and Television School. He sits on the Directors UK ‘Remunerations Committee’and on the ‘Advisory Committee for Producing and Directing TV Entertainment’ for the National Film and Television School. He is member, as well as a regular Juror, for BAFTA.
“Working with Ben at the BBC was an absolute delight. He makes things look wonderful, he’s calm under pressure in a live multi-camera studio environment and on location with single camera shoots. Great with people whether it’s the talent or his teams. It’s hugely reassuring and fun to have him alongside you…”
