Funny man Richie Holiday didn’t grow up wanting to be a comedian. He wanted to be an architect, but quickly discovered he was terrible at math. So he took the advice of his college philosophy professor “Find something you like to do. Then do it so well someone will pay you to do it.” In early 2001, Richie tried his hand at stand-up comedy. After just two weeks of open mic he was offered a job as the house MC and decided he enjoyed getting paid to show the world he’s not quite the genius he parents hoped he would be. Described by Weird Al Yankovich as “Brilliantly Silly,” Richie Holliday’s charismatic and laid back persona has anchored his absurd and whimsical comedy. It’s a balance of the quirky and the common that made Holliday a favorite on Carnival Cruise Lines, over 150 colleges throughout America and has lead to appearances on HBO & ABC.

  • 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.
