Kevin McCaffrey is a comedian and writer based out of New York City. Originally from Chicago, he has been a contributing monologue writer for The Late Show with David Letterman since graduating college in 2004. He has also appeared on the show many times as an actor. Currently Kevin appears on-air each week on TruTV Presents: World's Dumbest series where he comments on ridiculous videos, alongside countless "celebrities" (read: mostly quasi-famous felons).
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's a storyteller who relies on content more than volume; he’s not the crazy angry guy, or the crazy props guy, or the crazy fat guy. At least not yet. He focuses on true stories from his own life: from growing up in the suburbs outside Chicago, to college in the middle of Indiana, to city living in New York, Kevin's a young comic who connects with a wide variety of audiences.
Kevin has also written for MTV's Silent Library, Discovery's Cash Cab, National Lampoon, Whim Quarterly, and various shows on VH1 and Fuse. He also hosts Technically Tomorrow, a morning talk show webseries found on Vimeo.com.
"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 TruTV message board commenter who almost knows Kevin's name.
