Kelly had a small part in the critically acclaimed film Comic Strip Presents... Mr Jolly Lives Next Door (1987). In 1983 Kelly was featured in "Killer", the pilot episode of the crime drama series Taggart.
From 2007 to 2010 he appeared regularly as Father Henderson, a camp Doctor Who-loving priest, in the award-winning BBC Radio 4 comedy Fags, Mags and Bags. In 2011, after Kelly's death, reference was made in the series to Father Henderson's move to another parish and to the fact that the new priest can never replace him.
In 1994 Kelly played Felix Ungar in a Scottish touring production of The Odd Couple, relocated to modern-day Glasgow, alongside Craig Ferguson as Oscar Madison. Kelly reprised the role at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2002, this time opposite his former City Lights co-star Andy Gray.
Kelly played the Narrator in The Rocky Horror Show in Edinburgh and Aberdeen from 21 June to 3 July 2010. He was due to revive this performance for one week at the King's Theatre, Glasgow, from 8 to 13 November 2010.
Kelly was well known for his appearances in pantomime at the King's Theatre. He headlined the show for 20 years and was crowned King of Panto. In 2008 he appeared in Cinderella, and the following year (2009/10) he starred in Aladdin, his last pantomime.
Death and tribute
Kelly was due to star in the 2010/11 King's Theatre production of Snow White in Glasgow, but died on 28 October 2010 at the West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth, after collapsing with a brain aneurysm.
On New Year's Eve 2010 BBC1 Scotland broadcast an hour-long tribute to the star, Gerard Kelly: A Celebration.
