He has been in the New York Underground Comedy Festival and his writing has been included in the blog Rock Bottom. (Read it.) He has an unhealthy obsession with using parentheses.

Rob Ryan

He Headlines at Colleges across the country and was also recently voted the 'Funniest Person on Long Island.' Rob is a contributing writer for a number of sketch comedy groups in New York and L.A. and has recently teamed up with 'The Reel Public,' an on-line sketch comedy group, writing several on-line viral video hits for them.

Kevin also currently appears as a commentator on TruTV's series "The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest" where he says snarky things, mostly about unsuccessful criminals.

"...very friendly, extremely funny..."

"Kevin McCaffrey is a name you should know." -Pioneer Press (Evanston, IL)
