You Know What Dude Podcast
In April 2010, Kelly started his own podcast, called You Know What Dude!. It is recorded weekly at the Comedy Cellar. The show regularly features Kelly curating a discussion with 3-5 comedians, with an emphasis on honesty and "ball-busting". His regular guests include Joe List, Luis J Gomez, and Dan Soder. The show was produced until September of 2014 by Kelly Fastuca, and has since been produced by Chris Scopo. An audio version is available on their iTunes page as well as an HD video version on their Youtube page.
