He warmed up for David Letterman, and now comedian Kevin McCaffrey hopes to do the same for a Buffalo winter audience when he appears for two shows at Rob's Comedy Playhouse (1340 North Forest, Williamsville).
McCaffrey made his television debut on Letterman’s “Late Show” in 2013, and was quickly hired as the program’s warm up act for audiences to get them in the mood to laugh before tapings. He also worked as a writer and occasional extra performer on the long-running CBS late night show.
McCaffrey has appeared on several cable shows, including truTV’s “Greatest Ever” and “World’s Dumbest” series, VH1’s “I Love the 2000s” and History’s “I Love the 1880s.” He was also a regular on a few WWE Network programs, such as “The List” and “The Edge and Christian Show.”
In addition to his comedy career, McCaffrey hosts the “College Stories” podcast, where he interviews comedians, writers and actors about their memories attending universities. He also hosts “Technically Tomorrow,” which can be seen on Vimeo, and works with the sketch group Vicarious George for videos on Funny or Die.
McCaffrey will perform at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. Feb. 18 at Rob's . Tickets are $10. For reservations, call 688-1867. Visit robscomedyplayhouse.com.
