After getting a taste of showbiz in the late ’90s as the Fordham University mascot, he moved to New York and began doing stand-up with his friend and roommate Pete Holmes in 2003. The pair also formed a small production company, Front Page Films, and starred in a string of online comedy shorts as well as shooting a number of hilarious, completely outrageous spec commercials for the likes of Doritos, Klondike bars and Crunch Fitness. It was those shorts that led to McCarthy’s appearance in spots for Guinness and Verizon.
After releasing a comedy album, Come Clean, in 2010, McCarthy, a longtime obsessive wrestling fan, worked as a creative writer for the WWE until 2012, when he moved to Los Angeles to take a job as a writer and regular performer on The Pete Holmes Show, the show itself a direct result of those FPF shorts. The show only lasted a season on TBS, but in the meantime McCarthy has done guest spots as various drunks, crazies and bowling buddies on shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Louie and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and has been cast in small roles in a few features, including The Normals and the Will Ferrell comedy The Other Guys. These days McCarthy is a regular on CollegeHumor.com and hosts his own podcast, We Watch Wrestling.
His stand-up comedy television performances include Live at Gotham, John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show on Comedy Central.
McCarthy has performed stanp-up at such festivals as Just for Laughs in Montreal, All Tomorrow's Parties, Sasquatch, Outside Lands and Bonnaroo.
Has been see on Conan, @midnight, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Adam Devine's House Party, Louie, White Collar, Bored to Death, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Whitest Kids U' Know and the movie The Other Guys
