About Kevin:
 
Comedian, columnist Kevin Downey, Jr. has been recently labeled "refreshingly bizarre" by fellow comedian Joe Mulligan.  Kevin headlined small rooms all over the U.S. and enjoyed a cult following, (that means only 28 people dug him), until his frequent and on-going bookings at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino's "Comedy Stop" in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, bringing him to a new level of notoriety. Kevin now works "A" clubs everywhere, and to larger and larger audiences.
 
The Early Years - Whereas most comedians will lie about where they grew up in an effort to gain street cred, comedian, columnist and all around swell guy Kevin Downey Jr. actually did grow up in Detroit MI. He made his TV debut at age 6 on CKLW's "The Bozo Show" where he won a hockey stick, a 12-pack of Orange Crush and some Tootsie Rolls playing, The Bug Game.  Like all kids in Detroit Kevin attempted to play ice hockey, but his first and only season was cut short when the coach realized Kevin was too small to skate while wearing all the gear, thus clearing the way for Wayne Gretzky to top Gordie Howes achievements.
 
Bright Lights burnin' Gonna set your Soul on Fire - Kevin moved to New York City looking for fame and fortune. He instantly landed a part at Macy's Santaland as an elf (some call it the longest running show on Broadway). Kevin was decimated to learn all elves were fired after the Christmas Eve shift. Shortly thereafter, Kevin went to his first comedy show at New York's "Comic Strip Live" and realized his calling; however,  it would be three years until he had the stones to get on stage himself.
 
Money for nothing and your chicks for free - Today Kevin is headlining clubs everywhere in the U.S., and can be heard regularly on "The Bob and Tom Show", as well as, Sirius and XM Satellite radio.  Kevin is also a proud member of Armed Forces Entertainment and he travels the world performing for the troops. Some of the bases he's been to include: Pearl Harbor, Guam, Roi-Namur, Kwajalein Atoll, Singapore, Diego Garcia.
 
He's also appeared on "Comedy Central", "What Not to Wear" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" where he got a much needed haircut. Kevin appears at the Trop's "Comedy Stop" in Las Vegas at least four times a year. He truly appreciates his ever-growing fan base who come to see him again and again.  Kevin authors a column called, Drinking on $11 a Night, which can be read in "Bachelor Pad Magazine" and "GC" magazine, and online at usedwigs.com.  Kevins song, "Secret Garden of Dirty Little Whores (who think they're better than me)", can be heard on college and traditional radio stations throughout the country.  His nationally-released DVD called, "I'm not Gay, but Don't Stop" can be found on both Amazon.com and Netflix.
 
...And no, Kevin is not related to Robert Downey, Jr.

  • Kevin McCaffery
    December 16, 2017 at 8:00 PM Kevin McCaffery
    Kevin McCaffrey is a comedian & writer based out of New York City. He made his network TV debut on The Late Show with David Letterman in November of 2013 (after which he was hired to do warm-up for the show), and he currently appears every week on truTV Presents: World’s Dumbest. He has also appeared on VH1’s I Love the 2000s, History Channel’s I Love the 1880s, and The List on the WWE Network. Kevin hosts College Stories with Kevin McCaffrey, a weekly podcast talking to comics, writers, and actors about their time in college, and their best/funniest/craziest stories from that time.
     
    Originally from Chicago, he graduated from Ball State University despite the school’s general policy of taking attendance. Since then he has been a contributing monologue writer for The Late Show with David Letterman. Kevin has also appeared on The Late Show many times as an actor, once being hosed down by Dave with a fire extinguisher. To his knowledge, this is an honor Kevin shares only with Richard Simmons.
     
    When asked to describe his exceedingly unique brand of comedy, Kevin says, “What I do, is I try to say stuff that’s funny.” That’s how avant-garde he is! As a performer, he relies on content more than volume; he’s not the crazy props guy, the crazy angry guy, or the crazy fat guy. At least not yet.
