Performance Work

“I guess I just like talking to people?” —Kevin McVey

These days I perform long-form improv comedy with a couple of troupes in Seattle, WA: Rock Bottom and Prude Beach. In the past I’ve performed improv, sketch comedy, and stand-up, was a weekly radio personality for WTJU & WUVA, and travelled around the East Coast to amp up crowds as a volunteer for FIRST Robotics Competition (an incredible high school program).

Rock Bottom
 
I’m one of the founding members of Rock Bottom, a long-form improv comedy troupe in Seattle, WA. We bring New York style Harolds and Armandos to new audiences on the West Coast so keep your eyes peeled for our shows!

Amuse Bouche
 
From 2010 to 2014 I performed long-form improv comedy (what’s long-form?) with Amuse Bouche, “The oldest improv comedy troupe in Charlottesville, Virginia called ‘Amuse Bouche.’” We held three large shows a semester, made frequent appearances at smaller events as opening entertainment, and traveled around the country to participate in workshops and comedy festivals. The group is still performing (though I have sadly left…) and I encourage you to check out their website!

La Petite Teet
 
From 2012 to 2014 I performed sketch comedy with a troupe we lovingly called La Petite Teet. With this great team of jokesters I wrote and performed sketches and videos that we showcased at the end of each semester in a live show not too unlike Saturday Night Live. Be sure to visit our website for more information and a backlog of our old videos.

WTJU : Bad Blood
 
I got involved with the radio as soon as I began studying at UVa. For four wonderful years I was an on-air DJ with 91.1 FM WTJU in Charlottesville & Richmond, Virginia where I co-hosted an electronic music program called “Bad Blood” on Wednesday nights from 11pm to 1am. You can check out old shows in our tape vault for a sample of my work and a collection of old playlists (yes, I get to pick the music!). For a while there I was also the Programming Director of the WTJU Rock Department and assisted with our annual pledge drives–community funded radio needs community to stay freeform!

FIRST Emcee
 
Sometimes for your events you just need someone to bring in the high energy and for FIRST Robotics that’s where I come in. Since 2008 I’ve been hauled all around Virginia to be the Master of Ceremonies and/or Game Announcer for a number of FIRST Robotics events ranging from small childrens’ Lego robotics competitions to massive scale high school competitions with sixty teams and more volunteers than I can count.
