Moody headshot   Moody McCarthy — Comic/Writer/Comic Writer
   Moody McCarthy is a stand-up comedian who has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, and twice on the Letterman Show. He can be seen in North America’s top clubs and heard on Sirius/XM radio.
  Moody began his career in his hometown of Syracuse, NY, and is now based in New York City, where he lives with his wife and two wee lasses. Moody’s material is described as original but universal, and smart without being trite. Couple that with a disarming presence & in-the-moment chops, you’ll see why he’s earned the respect of his peers for his ability to “go up cold”. His style also translates well to virtual shows and during the pandemic he delighted Pfizer’s senior global team with a performance. (What a hero.)
   Corporate events, fundraisers, private shows, Zoom meetings – you name it, this versatile performer will brighten any event.
   Moody McCarthy: few people hate him!
