Matt McCarthy on Stand-Up: ‘You Got to Do What Will Make What’s Inside You Work’


Comedy Central Insider has an excellent interview with comedian Matt McCarthy, who kicked off his new stand-up show Marking Out last month. In addition to riffing on pro-wrestling and 19 Kids And Counting, McCarthy also makes you verklempt about your unused fart jokes: “You need some sort of kick in the ass. Even if it’s you know, the negativity from the day job or the anxiousness from feeling like your wasting your life. As much as the drive to be creative, to put your stamp, to let people know you were here.” We are such noble beasts!
