Monologue writer for Letterman, appears weekly on TruTV's "TSG Presents: World's Dumbest"
Kevin McCaffrey is a comedian and writer based out of New York City. Originally from Chicago, he graduated from Ball State University despite the school’s general policy of taking attendance, and at 21 he was contributing to David Letterman’s Top Ten Lists. He has been a monologue writer for The Late Show since 2004. 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 said “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 fat guy, or the crazy angry guy, or the crazy gay guy. At least not yet.
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 performed at the 2008 Boston Comedy Festival, and he currently co-hosts a weekly show on East Village Radio that can be listened to if you really know how to work the internet. He writes and performs sketches with Vicarious George, some of whose videos can be seen on funnyordie.com.
