                                                         Kimmel Live, Moody McCarthy is no longer a well-kept secret. (After an
                                                         appearance on the re-vamped Star Search, he still was.) With sharp, versatile
                                                         material and an old-school ethic, Moody has performed all over North

                                                         established himself as a keen monologist. Now based in New York City, he’s
                                                         become a regular in the town’s best rooms and grown into an act that thrives
                                                         in any setting, from upscale country clubs to divey pubs. Weaving sly topical
                                                         jokes with crafty material and a dash of crowd-work, Moody’s likeability
                                                         shines in any setting.
