Moody McCarthy on Conan

How many McCarthys in comedy would you guess live in the New York City neighborhood of Astoria? Well, Moody McCarthy may live near me and be a funny stand-up comedian, but those are the only ways we’re related. That I know of. Moody is from Syracuse, where as he joked on Wednesday’s Conan, they “eat themselves sober.” He and his wife — whom he met online — recently welcomed a baby daughter. Her name? “Cheap applause.”

Roll the clip for the rest of his set! What do you do if you and your sibling end up on a “Kiss Cam,” anyhow?
