Moody McCarthy is a stand-up comedian who lives in New York with his wife, two daughters, and a Betta fish they rescued from a pet store. Moody has made numerous TV appearances, highlighted by performances on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and two scintillating sets on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Moody was born “Matthew” in Syracuse, NY, into a rambunctious household with six siblings. (They’re Irish, so somebody had to get a nickname.) He began doing comedy in 1992 and shortly thereafter was hired by Syracuse’s #1 radio show to cover sports and write jokes, two of his loves. After six years of performing regionally Moody decided his apartment was too big and moved to New York City.
This millennium has been good to Moody: he’s also been featured on Last Comic Standing; Star Search (the 2003 reboot); America’s Got Talent; and Gotham Comedy Live. He’s a regular at some of the best clubs in the land and can be heard on SiriusXM.
Moody’s material is described as original but universal, and smart without being trite. Couple that with a disarming stage presence & in-the-moment chops, you’ll see why he’s earned the admiration of his peers for his ability to “go up cold” and turn any setting into a lively comedy room. From country clubs to pubs to corporate outings, he will brighten any event.
Moody McCarthy: few people hate him!
