Ep. 12: Matt McCarthy
Wrestling Team
Beginnings

What leads people into comedy? What’s it really like starting out? How can you build a lasting career? Each month, Wrestling Team interviews other comedians on their Beginnings.





Matt McCarthy is a stand-up, writer and actor based out of New York. McCarthy’s television work includes his stint as the continually-flummoxed cable guy in the Verizon commercials and as co-host of AMC’s Action Pack. Along with Oren Brimer and Pete Holmes, he makes web videos as Front Page Films. His stand-up is fierce, silly and dynamic, and his 2010 album Come Clean made a number of end-of-the-year lists. McCarthy sat down with us mid-December to discuss comedy as recapturing childhood, musical metaphors, the existential misery of day jobs, Frank Zappa, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead and Old Man Logan.
