About Kevin McCaffrey
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, and he currently appears every week on "truTV Presents: World's Dumbest". In the summer of 2014 he'll appear on VH1's "I Love the 2000's" series. He also previously appeared on History Channel's "I Love the 1880's". 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. He's mostly a storyteller.
Kevin has also written for VH1, National Lampoon, Fuse TV, and various celebrities who want something kind of funny to say at awards shows. He hosts Technically Tomorrow, a late night/early morning talk show on Queens Public TV in New York, that can also be seen on vimeo.com. He writes and performs sketches with Vicarious George, some of whose videos can be seen on funnyordie.com.
Here's what the critics AREN'T saying about Kevin McCaffrey!
"Frisky and irreverent" - New York Times book critic Michiko Kakutani, about Zadie Smith
"Mastery of both material and form" - The Guardian art critic Florence Waters, about Nasreen Mohamedi's "Untitled," at Tate Liverpool
"It is filled with innocence, hope, and good cheer. It is also wickedly funny and exciting as hell." - Roger Ebert, about E.T.
ACTUAL PRESS:
"Kevin McCaffrey is a name you should know." -Pioneer Press (Evanston, IL)
"McCaffrey's set will go beyond monologue one-liners, but expect the same sort of laid-back persona of a late night talk show host." -NewCity Stage (Chicago, IL)
"...a great guy, very friendly, extremely funny..." -Chicagonow.com
"My number one favorite is Kevin McCarthy. He is really cute and funny and he never fails to make me laugh." -Dux411, a nice message board commenter who kind of knows Kevin's name.
