Moody McCarthy

Moody McCarthy has performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing, and Star Search.  He lives in New York City with his wife and step-dog.

Moody McCarthy

Moody began his career in his hometown of Syracuse, NY, in the 1900s. Many who witnessed his early performances forecast stardom. Moody proved those people wrong.

After six years Moody moved to New York City, where those who heard his jokes predicted he’d be courted by A-list producers as a writer. That has not happened.

But after 20+ years honing his craft, Moody has steadily gained the respect of his peers and audiences everywhere. With unpredictable material, a disarming presence, and in-the-moment chops, here is a comic who thrives in any venue and will brighten any event.

What people are saying about Moody

  1. Claudia P.

    Moody McCarthy was awesome. Very professional and very mindful of our audience, no off-color jokes. He had us all laughing until our stomaches ached. His jokes were funny, he delivered them perfectly, with a dry wit and humor that transcends all groups. He had something for everyone, young and old. He was amazing, and everyone at the fundraiser was very impressed with his talent. We would highly recommend him.

  2. Janet B., Sunnyside, NY.

    I looked through a lot of stand-up comedians for my husband's 50th birthday party and decided to hire Moody. My husband and our guests had tons of laughter at the party. Moody's the one to hire if you are undecided!

    Moody was so great to have here at UMass. We had a lot of things going on the day he was to perform and he was incredibly patient and understanding throughout the whole thing. One of the nicest people I've ever met as well.
