With seven network TV appearances Moody McCarthy is Upstate New York's most accomplished working comedian. He has had standout sets on The Letterman Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and more recently Conan. Additionally, he's performed on America's Got Talent (<kinda got edited out of that one), Last Comic Standing, and the revamped Star Search that no one remembers. He currently lives in New York City with his wife and kids, but frequently visits CNY (especially March > December).
Moody began his comedy career in Syracuse in the 1900s, which led to a morning radio job covering sports. Soon after he moved to New York City, where he is now a regular at some of the best comedy clubs in the world. And after 30 years of honing his craft Moody has steadily gained the respect of his peers and audiences everywhere. He has also embraced virtual shows, and added a professional quality streaming studio to his home. (His most memorable show so far: entertaining Pfizer's Senior Global Leadership team during the height of the pandemic.)
With a disarming presence, punch lines you don't see coming, and in-the-moment chops, here is a comic who thrives in any venue. From corporate shows to pubs to country clubs, he will brighten any event.
Moody McCarthy: few people hate him!
