Moody McCarthy is a stand-up comedian who lives in New York with his wife, two daughters and a beta fish they rescued from a pet store. Moody has made numerous TV appearances, highlighted by performances on "Conan," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and two scintillating sets on "The Late Show with David Letterman."

Moody was born “Matthew” in Syracuse, NY, into a rambunctious household with six siblings. (They're Irish, so somebody had to get a nickname.) He began doing comedy in 1992 and shortly thereafter was hired by Syracuse’s #1 radio show to cover sports and write jokes, two of his loves. After six years of performing regionally Moody decided his apartment was too big and moved to New York City.

In addition to his appearances on Late Night TV, Moody has been featured on "Last Comic Standing;" "Star Search" (the 2003 reboot); "America’s Got Talent" and "Gotham Comedy Live." He’s a regular at some of the best clubs in the land and can be heard on SiriusXM. 

Moody’s material is described as original but universal, and smart without being trite. Couple that with a disarming stage presence & in-the-moment chops, you’ll see why he’s earned the admiration of his peers for his ability to “go up cold” and turn any setting into a lively comedy room.

Internationally, Andy has performed at clubs and festivals throughout the world, including Canada, England, Holland and Ireland.

Showtime declared Pat Hazell one of the five funniest people in America. His 30 years of experience as a writer, producer and director have made him a go-to guy for new American theater.

As the Chief Creative Officer of Sweetwood Creative, he is responsible for the national tours of six original productions: Bunk Bed Brothers, The Wonder Bread Years, The Good Humor Men, My Funny Valentine, A Kodachrome Christmas and Pat Hazell’s Permanent Record. However, his greatest accomplishment is being the father of two of the brightest shining stars in the universe, Tucker and Keaton.
