The regular cable guy on the Verizon FiOS commercials is constantly being outsmarted by the FiOS guy, but Matt McCarthy, who plays the red-haired bear of a customer service tech for the much-reviled cable company, is actually pretty savvy. Hes made quite a career for himself out of the consumption habits of Americans, starring in ads not just for FiOS, but OfficeMax, Doritos, and U.S. Cellular. Besides his commercial success, McCarthy is a comic who has appeared on Comedy Central, and is hosting a new monthly live show, Marking Out. Tonight, hell be joined by fellow comics Adira Amram, Vince Averil, Sean Donnelly, Hannibal Buress, and Anthony Jeselnik.
