Connelly was born in Middlesbrough, England and was educated at St Mary's Roman Catholic College in Middlesbrough, where he would mimic his fellow students and teachers. Later while working in the Cleveland Tontine restaurant business, he would entertain his customers with unrehearsed cameo pieces. This led directly to engagements as an after-dinner speaker.
Connelly lives in North Yorkshire, where he spends much of his time travelling to London to work at the BBC on Dead Ringers. The remainder of his time is spent delivering after-dinner speeches using his talent for impersonation, principally of sports personalities.
