Bio

I am John McKeever.  I am a 28-year-old comic and writer living in Philadelphia with my wife and fat dog.

I was named 3-point Hot Shot Champion out of all the other eight-graders on my traveling basketball team in 1998.

I wrote and directed the short comedy film “Samesies” which has accrued over 1 million views on YouTube.  Samesies has been featured on the Huffington Post, Gawker, CollegeHumor, LaughSpin, TeamCoco, MSN and many other national websites.

As a stand-up comedian I have traveled across the country performing as a featured act.   I was recently selected by David Letterman booker Eddie Brill as one of twenty people in the country to perform at the 2013 Great American Comedy Festival at the Johnny Carson Theater in Nebraska.  I was lucky enough to have been named one of the top comics in the city by Philadelphia Magazine and placed 3rd overall in the Philly’s Phunniest Competition out of over 200.

I am one of the writers/actors/directors of the sketch comedy group Bird Text along with Tommy Pope and Luke Cunningham.  Bird Text has been featured on VH1, Comedy Central,  SportsIllustrated.com, The Preston & Steve Show, The Good Day show on Fox 29, NPR and a bunch of other places with less recognizable names.    All of our videos can be found HERE or you can just go to the videos section on my page.   We have written, directed and acted in multiple national television commercials.  Here is me on an ESPN commercial for 5 seconds Jealous?

Anyway, if you’re still reading , hi mom.
